My Great Great Grandfather was Johannes Vollrath from Reichelsheim, Germany. He immigrated to America in December 1853 and settled in Walhalla, South Carolina. Johannes had at least 11 children. His son Lewis Abner was my Great Grandfather. My Grandfather was Lewis Jay Vollrath and my Father was Ernest Richard Vollrath. I am wondering if there is a connection to the two families.

Here is the information I have on the Vollraths of Clark County. Wilhelm Vollrath was born 23 Nov 1956 in Wintenbach, Rhine, Prussia. He married Augusta Decker (my relative). Wilhelm's parents were John Vollrath and Elizabeth Mary Kremer. Wilhelm's Grand Parents were John Vollrath and Othillie Kassel.

This information has been obtained from obituaries and other newspaper articles during my family research.

If you would like to view the family information, you can go to This is my family history web site. Look on the Decker Family page and there is a link to the Decker PDF. This is where you will find the Vollraths. I can also send you a Gedcom file of the Vollrath Family if you would like.
