The Elgin VV - Evelina Cronk family had moved to Oshawa in Whitby East Twp., Ontario Co. by 1929. Elgin was later killed near Mactier, back in Muskoka, but may have been there doing a temporary job.

The 1926 Vernon's directory does not show these particular families, although there is a Leonard Vann on the 1926.

Note that Vann is a common name change from VanVolkenburg in SW Ontario. Note, this Leonard Vann has a wife named Mary.

VV family in the Austin Dam Disaster, 1911, Austin, Potter Co., PA
VV family in the Austin Dam Disaster, 1911, Austin, Potter Co., PA
At the 1910 census, Mary Barnes-VV and daughter Anna were living in the town of Austin, Pennsylvania. According to both the 1900 and 1910 census records, their specific address was on Elliot St., a frame house.

Unexpectedly and without warning on the 30th September, 1911, the dam above the town failed catastrophically. The water, combined with burning fuel atop the surge, caused an estimated 150 deaths.

Had Mary and Anna perished?

UPDATE: In the newspaper in her hometown in Ohio, was reported that Mary was indeed present in Austin on the day, and did survive the flood. In this brief coverage, nothing was mentioned of daughter Anna.

VV names in two directories for Northumberland Co., Ontario - 1865 and 1870.
VV names in two directories for Northumberland Co., Ontario - 1865 and 1870.

Shows VV / Vollicks in the following townships: Brighton, Campbellford & Emily, Seymour. An 1885 directory was consulted but not copied as it showed only one: Oscar Vollick, shoemaker, in Marmora, Hastings Co.

David VV, (who incidentally was also a shoemaker), wrote a will out of *Cramahe* Twp. in 1846 describing his holdings at Lots 4 and 5 in the 4th Concession. By the 1870's, that part of Cramahe Twp. just north-west of the village of Brighton, was incorporated into Brighton Twp., so he is the "D." VV in these directories. On censuses he was actually a resident of Brighton village - maybe he had his shoemaker shop there.

Note the proximity of an "S.D." VV living very near to David at Con 3 Lot 3. Is this Sylvester Ducklin VV?

Directories available at the Cobourg Public Library.
