Thank you for the photo. I appreciate that you took the entire headstone so that his wife was included (Zola Elizabeth Short). It was great to be able to verify her name.

RE: John H. Vogt
I got the file out and it looks like 1922 was a transcription error. Narcissa filed in early 1912, then died, and her daughter-in-law filed a claim for what she was owed up to her death.

RE: John H. Vogt
I got his pension files from the National Archives and the story was there. Also you can see the filing from Narcissa index cards here - and Sylvia's here -
I agree that Narcissa probably told or let people assume that her husband had died. Sylvia (who is the one I am connected to) appears to have had some truth issues, she told the claim investigator that her mother had died (which I knew was wrong), but investigator went to visit Sylvia's brother in Missouri and mom was visiting.

RE: John H. Vogt
He was not dead in 1888. He left Narcissa and supposedly married a woman named Sylvia Seley. When he died in 1910, she filed for a widow's pension. However Narcissa had also filed, and whoever investigated Sylvia's claim determine that there was no record of a divorce from Narcissa and that the record of his marriage to Sylvia could not be substantiated. Narcissa stated that she & John moved to St Louis, then they separated and he moved to Loadville, CO, while she returned to Toledo. JOhn eventually lived in Chicago and then moved to LA. Sylvia Vogt states that John came to Kansas City in late 1882 from Colorado and moved to Chicago in late 1883. In 1898 pension filing, John Vogt mentions wife Narcissa and 3 children, however he was living with Sylvia in 1900 in Los Angeles after moving there in 1898. In her pension application, Sylvia said she and John were married in Milwaukee in 1890 and they moved to L.A. in 1898.

RE: Sally Rice
The current date on the bio shows 1774 - I'm suggesting that it should be corrected to show 1784.
