K , 21st Regiment, Missouri Volunteer Infantry
"VOGT - on Tuesday night, July 22, 1890, at his
residence on the River aux Vases, Roman Vogt deid at the age of 56
years, 11 months, and 7 days. Mr. Vogt had for some time been suffering
with a bad case of throat disease, which almost prevented him from
swallowing solid food. He had contracted the disease during a nine
month service in the Federal Army during the late Civil War. He was a
member of the J. Felix St. James GAR post of this place and a number of
his comrades were present at the funeral, which took place in the River
aux Vases cemetery, on Thurs.
"Roman Vogt was born July 30, 1833 in Windschlag, Offenburg, Baden,
Germany. He was twice married. His first wife being Marie Louisa Gegg
whom he married Jan. 28, 1858 in Zell. She was born June 2, 1840, the
daughter of Joseph Gegg and Josepha Woerther. Six children are known:
Maria Regina, Joseph William, Josephine, Anton, John Emil, and Louise
Rosina. Following the death of Louisa, Roman married Albertine Gegg, on
January 1, 1877, a sister of his first wife, with whom he had lived 11
years but had no children. A descendant relates that Roman and
Albertine were married in a civil ceremony as the Catholic Church would
not recognize a marriage between a brother- and sister-in-law. Later a
dispensation was granted and the marriage was recognized by the church.
"The deceased was an upright Christian and was well respected by all who
knew him. May he rest in peace.

from George and Mary Beck]

Infantry. He was discharged October 3, 1865 at Mobile, Alabama."
Tombstone gives Roman's age as 56yrs, 11mo, 7da (just as
his obituary), all in German, of course. "Hier Ruhet in Gott."
