Henry DeBree, my great grandfather,a carpenter, built this house as well as the church and parsonage
In Vogel Center. He was one of the first deacons. He came with his wife Brechtje Dekker and 5 children under the age of 10 in the steerage if the ship from the Netherlands in 1885. I am in possession of this same picture of this great house. Gerbrand DeBree was my grandfather and he had the general store in vogel center...it was also Ben Bauers store at one time.
