Her son Friedrich (Frederick) Vossler (-4G) was born ca 1820 in the N. Rhineland, Prussia. Her son Christoph Gottfried Vossler was born in Jan. or Feb. 1825 in the N. Rhineland, Prussia. Her son Jacob Vossler (-4G) was born ca 1826 in the N. Rhineland, Prussia. Her son Michael Vossler was born ca 1830 in the N. Rhineland, Prussia. I do not know if she had any daughters, but if she did, they died young before May 1854.
Her name is found on the marriage record of Sibilla Theresia Breynck* (-4G) with Christoph Gottfried Vossler* (-4G) which civil marriage-ceremony took place on 3 Sept. 1852 in Düsseldorf. However this record says that Christoph and Sibilla were both from Wesel.
Her husband, Jacob Vossler (-5G), apparently died in Prussia before May 1854 because he did not immigrate with his wife and 3 sons on 01 May 1854 and also did not immigrate with his son Christoph's family in 1855. Nor is he found in any St. Louis records. He is not listed in the probate records of Theresia. However, he was present at the wedding of his son Christoph (see above).

Friedrich, Jacob and Michel are her sons and Minah probably is Wilhemina, the wife of Friedrich who are both found in Calvary Cemetery in St. Louis, in the same lot as members of Christoph's family.
Her son Chritoph G. Vossler (-4G) and his family (wife and first child) immigrated in 1855 and settled in the St. Louis area.

The records show that she was 72 years old at death.
Theresia's case (probate case #06142) was filed in 1862. She died without a will; probate was begun on 24 Mar. 1862.
