Karl Voigt, Florist and Horticulturalist

Karl Voigt, whose family has two of Woodland’s more impressive burial monuments right across from each other, was a successful florist and horticulturalist whose flower of choice was roses. He started out his working career as an assistant in his father’s shoe making business. Like many other of Newark’s Germans, the Voigts were from Baden and came to the U.S. after the failed revolution of 1848-49. Research by Guy Sterling
