Charles Vogt was the son of Nicholas Vogt and Catherine Miller. The bio I posted was written for his father, but I posted it because Charles is specifically mentioned in it. He was married to Sarilda J. Thornton in either Shelby County, Iowa or Gage County, Nebraska.
NICHOLAS VOGT is one of the early settlers of Fairview Township, having come to the county in 1877. He was born in Germany, August 23, 1822, and is a son of Peter and Clara (Miller) Vogt. He remained in his native land until he was twenty-six years old. He went to school until he was fourteen years old; then worked on a farm, and served three years in the army. In 1848 he came to America. He lived for awhile in Ohio; then in Kentucky, where he worked at the blacksmith's trade. Mr. Vogt was married in Hocking County, Ohio, in 1849, to Miss Catharine Miller, who was born in Germany in 1825, and is a daughter of Christ and Christena Miller. From Kentucky our subject came to Muscatine County, Iowa, and then to Johnson County, where he lived until 1877, when he came to his present farm. It was then wild, unimproved land. Assisted by his sons he has made one of the best farms in Shelby County. He has a good house, a barn, a vineyard and a grove.
Mr. and Mrs. Vogt are the parents of five children -- Jacob, Robert, Charles, George, and Katie, wife of D. P. Bonnett, of Harlan. Mr. Vogt is a Democrat. He and all his family are members of the Roman Catholic church. He is social in his disposition, and genial and friendly to all. Charles Vogt, dealer in general merchandise, Corley, is a son of Nicholas and Catharine Vogt. He was born in Muscatine County, Iowa, March 14, 1860. He was seventeen years of age when he came to Shelby County. He was reared on a farm, and received his education in the public schools of Iowa. He assisted his father in the improvement of the farm, and for several years operated a threshing machine. Charles Vogt was married in November, 1883, to Rilda Thornton, of Gage County, Nebraska. They are the parents of one child -- Mary. Mr. Vogt carries a good stock of dry goods and general merchandise, and sells his goods at reasonable prices. He has an extended acquaintance, and his up right and honorable dealings have won him a large and profitable patronage. He casts his vote with the Democratic party.
