Wilhelm was born in Kamitz, Schlesian, Germany. He came to Texas in 1852 and settled in Seguin. There he farmed and raised stock. He married Ernestine Neisher. In 1856, they moved to Boerne where he continued to farm. The couple had nine children: Joseph, Caroline (Ernst Pfeiffer), Augusta (Jacob Wenz), Pauline (Charles Bergmann), Emma (Adam Phillip), Wilhelmina (Charles Reinhard), Emilie (Ferdinand Zoeller), Ferdinande (Henry Day), and Carl.

Wilhelm Vogt was one of thirty-three inhabitants to purchase burial plots in the Boerne Cemetery in 1867.
