From Alsace to Payson
Ray Burhop, author of "The Twenty-Illinois Infantry Regiment", "Okahumpka", "Chicago Burhop Family, Hanover to Chicago" and "The McCormicks of International Harvester" now turns his attention to the true story of the five lives of Paul Vogel. Paul's first life in Alsace, France was followed by his life in Chicago as an immigrant. His third life involved very intense service in the Civil War in a German speaking regiment. His fourth distinct life was as a bull-whacker, muleskinner, and wagon master moving freight to and through the West. His fifth and longest life was experienced in Payson, Arizona where he was a builder, miner, rancher, farmer and orchard developer. Throughout his life Paul Vogel was faced with many dangers from sailing across the ocean, moving to an unknown country, Civil War battles in the Union Army, Apache uprisings, robbers, feuds, mining risks, and explorer of the wild west.
