*The asterisk marks direct-line ancestors. The (-3G), etc., after the names represents the number of generations before Erven Thoma
In ca. 1830 his brother Michael Vossler (-4G) was born in the N. Rheinland, Prussia.
Jacob (-4G) immigrated on 01 May 1854 at New Orleans, arriving on the ship Manchester from Havre. He was 28 years old at the time. With him were his mother (64 years old), and his brothers Frederick (34) and Michael (24), and Minah (27), the wife of Frederick.
His other brother, Christoph Gottfried Vossler (-4G) along with Christoph's wife and first daughter, immigrated 22 Feb. 1855 to New Orleans.
I do not know if and when Jacob married. Nor do I know if he had children. However, he may have married an Anna (Anna Marie, b. 1843?). There was an Anna Vossler who came over to the U. S. between Oct. 1876 and Sept. 1878 (see Germans to America) but that was too late. There was also an Anna Vosler born 03 May 1843, but she would have been too young. There was also an Anna Vosler who was a widow of a Jacob Vossler in the St. Louis Directories [year?]. But if he had a wife, I think she died before him.
He died before Oct. 1859, before his parents and brothers. In the probate records for his father (from after Oct. 1859), there is no mention of a son named Jacob Vossler in the list of heirs. He is also not mentioned in the probate records for his mother who died in 1961.
His father, also named Jacob, died in Oct. 1859 in St. Louis.
His mother, Theresia Hecker (-5G), died on 09 Mar. 1861 in St. Louis. His brother Christoph (-4G) died 03 Feb. 1881 in St. Louis. His brother Michael (-4G) died in 1879, probably in St. Louis. His brother Frederick (-4G) died on 02 Sep. 1904 in St. Louis.
A son by the name of Jacob is not mentioned in the probate court records for the settlement of the estate of his mother, 1861-65 because he had already died.
