I'm looking for information on the Vogenberger family. My great-grandfather was Eberhard Vogenberger. He came to the U.S. from Eltingen, Wurttemberg, Germany in 1854. There were a number of Vogenbergers who lived there and left Germany for various destinations...U.S., Russia, Poland, etc, during the 1800's. His name was shortened to Vogenberg. I recently discovered my G-Grandfather in the Jewish Roots. I was not aware that he was Jewish, though my mom told me that we had Jewish relatives in Pennsylvania. Does anyone have any information on other Vogenbergers who came originally from Eltingen? I'd love to find out more about my Jewish origins.

I am looking for Vogenberg as well. Was your great-grandfather's full name John Eberhard Vogenberg? Was he married to Anna B. Reeves. One of their children were William Sands Vogenberg.

Yes, John Eberhard Vogenberg was my great-grandfather and William Sands Vogenberg was my grandfather. William was married to Julia Biddle Hawn. My mother was their daughter, Georgianna Vogenberg, who married Edward William Moore. How are you connected?
