I'm hoping someone on this list can help me. I've been going through photographs from my family and have come across the photograph of a teenage boy, on the back it states in German: "Carl Voelker, born 24 Nov 1883, died 25 Nov 1898".
I've done extensive research on all lines of my family and haven't found any connection to the Voelker family. At the time most of my family lived in southwestern Illinois and I find no Voelker families in that area. My grandfather was born in Frohna, Perry Oounty, MO in 1897 and there were some Voelker families living there, so I'm hoping someone might know who he is.
I'd appreciate any help or suggestions.
