The Voge family moved from Lormira, Wisconsin in the late 1800's to Colby, Wisconsin onto an 80 acre farm on the north-east end of town. They raised crops, cattle and horses. The Voge men would race these horses on the weekends. Later the oldest son Adolph E. Voge married Grace F. Miller from Park Falls, Wisconsin and bought an 80 acre farm just west of the new town of Abbotsford, Wis. He farmed and built the county's first school bus, it was horse drawn with windows and had a pot-belly stove in the back to keep the children warm in the winter. Adolph would deliver and pickup children from over 7 miles away to Dor-Abby school. The couple had 2 boys and 2 girls.
