Hello Edward,

I do have some information on Sarah Ann "Tobe" Voss.
Below is some of my information. Hope it helps. Please e-mail if you would like to discuss the family.
Marlene Sexton
1A3A1E. ALPHA FRANCESS VAWTER was born ca 1821 in Tennessee, the daughter of Richard Vawter and Cinthey Maguire Vawter. She married (1) 8 Nov. 1840 at Lawrence Co., TN to Smith Voss. They had 4 children. He died. His will was presented in court 1 May 1848. My notes say, his estate inventory is in this book. I haven't found it yet. I have found no more information on Smith Voss or his ancestors. She married (2) 10 Oct. 1850 in Lafayette Co., MS to Joseph Benjamin Trotter, b. 7 Jan. 1807 in TN. They had 7 children
CHILDREN OF ALPHA FRANCESS VAWTER & Smith Voss
1A3A1E1. Sylvester R. Voss, b. 17 Aug. 1841 at TN. He married 26 March 1862 to Delila Jane Clark; d. 6 Jan. 1897
1A3A1E2. Cynthia A. Voss, b. 1842 in TN. She married 22 Nov. 1862 to George W. Hardy.
1A3A1E3. Martha Frances Voss, b. 21 Oct. 1844 in TN. She married 3 Sept. 1867 to W.J. Arrington; d. 1 Nov. 1912.

1A3A1E1. SYLVESTER RICHARD VOSS was born 17 Aug. 1841 at TN, the son of Smith Voss and Alpha Francess (Vawter) Voss. He married 26 March 1862 to Delila Jane Clark. She was born 25 June 1839. He was a Mason. He died 6 Jan. 1897 and she died 14 July 1908. Both are buried at Vossburg Cemetery, Jasper County, MS.
CHILDREN
       1A3A1E1A. Willie Sylvester Voss, b. 21 March 1864; d. 15 Nov 1865; bur. at Shady Grove First Baptist Church Cemetery; Jasper Co., MS (listed as a child of S.R. & D.J. Voss)

Information from the cemeteries was received from Dorman Davis. He got the information from the Jasper County Cemetery Book.

Also listed in the Vossburg Cemetery was G.H. Voss, b. 11 May 1878; d. March 1950. He was called "Uncle Gay." Don't know if he was connected with Sylvester Richard Voss and Delila Jane Clark Voss, but think he probably is.

1A3A1E3. MARTHA FRANCES (Tobe) VOSS (#1 on Chart 7) was born 21 Dec. 1844 at Lawrence Co., TN, the daughter of Smith Voss and Alpha Francess (Vawter) Voss. She married 3 Sept. 1867 at Hinds Co., MS to W. J. Arrington, the son of Thomas Arrington and Tempe Merrell. He died 2 June 1907 at Covington Co., MS and she died 1 Nov. 1912 in MS. Both are buried at the Mt. Olive Cemetery. For more on their family, look under Arrington for 1D2, W.J. Arrington and his descendants..
