Lutheran missionary lay helper stationed at Killalpaninna. Vogelsang was born at Schwenningdorf in the Kingdom of Prussia in 1832 and trained as a youth to be a blacksmith. He arrived in South Australia in 1866. At Killalpaninna Vogelsang (as did other missionaries and lay helpers) recited the daily prayers and Sunday services in Dieri. He ran a blacksmith shop there. According to historian Regina Ganter, Vogelsang was also a homeopathic practitioner. He died in 1913, aged 81 years.
