Frances Siepmann was born in Germany in December 1864.
Franzieska W. Siepmann was married to Steffen Volz in Carroll County, Iowa, on 18 June 1886.
The 1900 U.S. Census recorded Stephen Volz and wife Frances Volz in South Omaha, Nebraska, with five children. Both adults were born in Germany to parents born in Germany; they had been married 14 years. Frances was recorded as 35 years old, born in December 1874; this year of birth seems to be arithmetic error by the census enumerator, as the years of birth appear to have been entered later than the other information. She had been in the United States for 16 years (arrival recorded as 1884) and had had 8 children, of whom 5 were living. Her husband Stephen was 36 years old and born in January, apparently in 1864. He had immigrated to the United States in 1879, was a naturalized citizen, and worked as tailor. Children in their household, all born in Nebraska, were Paul Volz, 10, born September 1889; Katie Volz, 7, born January 1893; Mary Volz, 5, born February 1895; Albert Volz, 4, born July 1895 (he probably was born in 1896, but the census enumerator calculated the year of birth based on his reported age of 4); and Frances, infant daughter born February 1900.
The 1910 U.S. Census recorded Stephen Volz and wife Frances Volz, both age 46 and natives of Germany, in Boulder, Colorado. They had been married 23 years. Stephen was a tailor with his own shop; he had immigrated to the United States in 1880. Frances had immigrated in 1883; she had had 9 children, of whom 4 were living. Their unmarried children sharing their household were Paul Volz, 20, a butcher; Katherine Volz, 17, a servant for a private family; Mary Volz, 15; and Albert Volz, 13. All four children were born in Nebraska to parents born in Germany. Mary and Albert had attended school within the year.
