Henry and Fred Voigt came to the US from Germany. In New York, in 1884-1885, Henry married Doris Eggers. In 1885, in New York, Bertha Voigt was born to them. Henry & Doris moved to Chattanooga, TN and Preston was born to them in 1898. Henry & Doris lived there until their deaths. Doris remarried (Barre) after Henry's death in 1912.

I found them in the 1900 census, so I added that information to Henry's profile. Their profiles are Voigt-315 and Eggers-371, for anyone else who wants to try and find more. I would guess that Henry and Fred were originally called Heinrich and Frederick or something similar.

Yes, Elisa, that is them in the 1900 census. Thank you for adding to his profile. I would also assume their birth names are Heinrich and Frederick. Voigt is such a common German name and so are Heinrich and Frederick that it makes it super difficult to nail down a match to these two. Also, I obviously can not read German, so that presents another huge obstacle for me when searching German records. LOL Thank you so much for your help! You are awesome!
