Vogel Weiss Ranch is found east of the road to Soldier Meadows, south of Wheeler Ranch.

J. F. Vogel and Edward Weiss are listed in the 1925 Washoe County Directory. It could be that they co-owned the Vogel Weiss Ranch.

Named in the suite are Samuel K. Johnstone, Walter A. Johnstone, M?nnie Johnstone, (Johnstone Spring?), Estate of George Sweeney, Edwin E. Van Riper, Ben Cassidy (Cassidy Mine?), Fred Vogel, R. R.
