In Reply to: William and Elizabeth Voss, 1779, Mecklenburg County NC by John Voss of 934

Hi,

I was able to track down a book by James Reford Voss at the Lawrence County Archives (Voss, Joseph of NC &
Some of his Descendants 1752-1900).

According to the book, Joseph Voss is the father of William Voss (b. 1778 married Elizabeth Orr on Apr. 4, 1799) and John Voss (b. 1776 married Susanna Porter on May 16 1799).

Joseph Voss
William Voss b. 1778
James Voss b. abt 1800
Levi Voss b. 1823
Elihu D. Voss b. 10 AUG 1847, Lawrence County, TN
Charles Henry Voss b. 15 JUL 1884, Dallas Co. AR
Sheppard Voss b. Nov. 1930, Dallas Co. AR

I hope this helps others.

Joseph Voss fought in the Revolutionary War, so I thought it was wonderful to make that connection.

Regards,

John
