Vogt & DeRuntz - Alsace to Missouri

Englebert (1847-1902)& Anastasia Marxer Vogt came to America from the Goldbach region of Alsace, France, in 1872 with their 1 year old son, Robert, arriving in NY aboard the clipper ship Helvetia, eventually settling in the Carondolet area of St. Louis, MO. Shortly after arriving, Anastasia died from blood poisoning. Englebert employed his neighbor Emily DeRuntz (1851-1934) to care for Robert while he worked. Emily's family had immigrated from Alsace, France, in 1865 arriving in NY aboard the clipper ship Cella.

Englebert and Emily married about 1874 and eventually moved their family to King's Prairie, Barry County, MO, where they had purchased land for 25 cents an acre.
