There are several families in Sainte Genevieve, Missouri, which are related to the Vorst and André families through marriages. One family, the Oberle family, is related to both the Vorst and the André families. Damian André married Julia Hauck whose sister Rosina married Louis Naumann.

Some Vorst relations from Germany came to settle in Missouri – the Langhardts and Joseph Paul Vorst, the artist. The Zieglers and the Moores are included in the Vorst Family book.

Through Anna Marie Scherer, who married Joseph Johannes Vorst, the family is related to the many Scherers and also the Fitzkams in Sainte Genevieve.

Here is a list of the families in this edition:

      • Nicholas Hauck
      • Louis Naumann
      • Joseph Oberle
      • Johann Langhardt
      • Nicholas Scherer
      • Philip Fitzkam
      • Jean Francois DuPont (added 7/10/11)
      • Louis J. DelCommune (added 7/2/11)

The color-coding throughout these reports begins with the generation of my grandparents, Louise André and Léon Vorst, being pink and working back through brown, green and blue. Hopefully this will make it easier to follow the generations.
