In Reply to: Re: J.R. Voss buried Maury Co. Tn by Thomas Voss of 934

Mr. Voss....I feel certain that we must be related, if you are a Voss from Maury Cty, TN (is your homestead close to Henryville, TN); as my gggrandfather, William James Voss, son of Robert James Voss, and Charlotte Mitchell; came to Searcy Cty AR, with his wife, Susanna Pennington (her family is also from that area); from that area. I was working with Nettie Waters Craig, on the Mitchell, and Voss history, in that area, until the untimely death of her husband, and subsequent move from that area.

I have had some thoughts of running over to Henryville...to investigate the area where the home(s) were, the Penningtons still there, and the cemetary where they are buried (near the Natchez Trace...as I understand it).

I am at a loss as I am at my home in WI, at the monent, and don't have my database online that has all of my info. Otherwise I am sure I could find our connection.

I trace back through Robert James, to John Voss....but those Voss's actually came out of NC, Mechlenburg, if my memory serves me correct.
