Hi Diane, Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures either nor any stories. My mother was raised by her grandmother, Josephine Jones (Vogt). Josephine's parents were Catherine Herbertz & Daniel Vogt. However, she never spoke of her ancestors. I did receive the civil war pension file for Daniel Vogt which gave me the info to finally take the family back a few generations. Yes, I have found that most of the women use Minnie as a nickname of Wilhelmine or Wilhelmina.
Here are some addresses I found in the Detroit Directory CDs that I have. Of course, they didn't spell out the first name!! So it could be William or Wilhelm.
