Name: JOHN VOSS
Birth: ABT 1858
There is a marriage license for Bertha and JOHN VOSS, dated Aug. 13, 1887, in Lake View, Cook Co., Illinois. John and Bertha are found on the 1920 US Fed. Census, living at 2306 Addison St. along with their children:
Mary Voss married to Joseph Steffens-----William Voss------and Minnie Voss, married to Chester Sorenson.
John and Bertha are also found on the 1930 US Fed. census living at 2436 Thorndale Ave, also in Chicago, Il. with the same children, but now William is married to Ethel L. (last name unknown) and they have a child which I figure is from an earlier marriage of Ethel, named Georgia B.,as the child is 13 years old and the couple has been married only 5 years.
No Frank Voss is shown living with them in either census, but he is mentioned in the Obit. of Bertha, as living, and in the obit of John as the late Frank.
Bertha's obit says she died May 3, 1936. It names her children , her husband and her sister Mrs. Anna Phillips, who we know to be Anna Kobernuss, as still living.
Obit for John Voss says he died Oct. 10, 1940, and lists the children as living except for the Late Frank.
I am still not certain that the Frank Voss living with Minna Koberns in the 1910 census, is the son of Bertha and John, as in the 1900 census, there is another John Voss with a wife named Cabella, and children named Frank, Minnie, William, Eddie, and Marie. The FRANK Voss in this family would have been the same age as the FRANK in the 1910 census. This family lived at 1883, also N. Hoyne. Just a little mystery.
