The news article says Marbury as the residence of the swindled Adam VV, but was in fact Marburg. The article states he is living in the 5th concession which is consistent with the location of his neighbour James C. Holcombe at the 17th Lot Con 5. Marburg center had a church, was likely named for the Marr families who lived there, it was just to the south at Con. 3. Location of Jas. Holcombe's lot, enter the following coordinates into Google map address bar: 42.841612,-80.180411

Notes about Truman VV (1834-1916) based on reminiscences of son Thaddeus Edward VV and grand-daughter Dorothy Eileen VV-Brooks.


This branch of the VV family were living in Norwich, Oxford Co., Ontario by 1840. Hand-written genealogical notations on file at the Norwich Archives. (Note: progenitor Cornelius VV was not an UEL, but his wife Lois Davis was a DUE.)

The notes refer to Truman VV's time in Chicago when expelled from school probably 1845-1855 time period. His father sent him to live with three uncles living near Chicago. These are probably Hiram VV's two brothers-in-law: Robert B. Chisholm and Atwood Sackrider, and/or Hiram's brothers: Cornelius VV and Noah VV who had followed Chisholm to Elgin, Illinois on lumber importing for the Chicago Harbour construction, and then were in south Wisconsin on mining prospects.

Obituary of Bessie Vann-McLellan (1889-1939), death at Detroit Michigan, funeral in Ontario.
Obituary of Bessie Vann-McLellan (1889-1939), death at Detroit Michigan, funeral in Ontario.

St. Thomas Times Journal, 4 Jul 1939 p. 8 col. 6

Next of kin: brother David Vann of St. Thomas, sister Mrs. Charles Swartz of St. Thomas, Mrs. Frank McPhail of Union, and Mrs. Catherine Gilsdorf of Detroit. Several McPhail nephews were pallbearers, and it appears their mother's maiden name was "Stured".

Bessie's death record in Michigan, states her parents' names as William Vann and Jessie "Steward", but Bessie's date of birth falls within William Vann's marriage to Jane Hewitt. Another mystery: who is sister Mrs. Charles Swartz?

Obituary: Catherine VV-Waite (1829-1913), Chicago, IL

Kat Von B ?!

How did this dedicated suffragist become identified in death as merely the wife of a famous attorney? and with such a botched spelling of the name? Looking at news items in the same papers, suffragists were described as 'rioters' and women were encouraged to take their places as good wives and carers of the poor. Several rights we take for granted that were championed by Catherine and her husband: a woman's right to inherit the estate of her husband, a woman's right to revert to her maiden name after divorce. Although access to med school was denied Catherine, it was opened to the next generations, including her daughter Lucy.
