Vogt, Roman (1833-1890)

VOGT – on Tuesday night, July 22, 1890, at his residence on the
River aux Vases, Roman Vogt deid at the age of 56 years, 11
months, and 7 days. Mr. Vogt had for some time been suffering
with a bad case of throat disease, which almost prevented him
from swallowing solid food. He had contracted the disease
during a nine month service in the Federal Army during the late
Civil War. He was a member of the J. Felix St. James GAR post
of this place and a number of his comrades were present at the
funeral, which took place in the River aux Vases cemetery, on

Roman Vogt was born July 30, 1833 in Windschlag, Offenburg,
Baden, Germany. He was twice married. His first wife being
Marie Louisa Gegg whom he married Jan. 28, 1858 in Zell. She
was born June 2, 1840, the daughter of Joseph Gegg and Josepha
Woerther. Six children are known: Maria Regina, Joseph William,
Josephine, Anton, John Emil, and Louise Rosina. Following the
death of Louisa, Roman married Albertine Gegg, on January 1,
1877, a sister of his first wife, with whom he had lived 11
years but had no children. A descendant relates that Roman and
Albertine were married in a civil ceremony as the Catholic
Church would not recognize a marriage between a brother- and
sister-in-law. Later a dispensation was granted and the
marriage was recognized by the church.

The deceased was an upright Christian and was well respected by
all who knew him. May he rest in peace. [Ste. Genevieve
