'MYSTERY MEDIA'
"MYSTERY MEDIA"

Mystery Media are single items: a document, photo, record etc. that describe an individual or event that is a "mystery". Users can request a Media Contributor login to add these items with short descriptions.

The Administrator will eventually add a link to each post inviting the input of others via the message boards. This is where a more detailed explanation can be written.

"SPECIAL ARTICLES / FEATURES"

Special Articles are produced by the Administrator to draw attention to a featured topic. Articles contain text, images, offsite links, etc. and therefore differ from "Mystery Media" which are single items.

Users may contribute their own genealogical questions and media items to either the Message Boards or to the Mystery Media sections (ask for a free Media Contributor login).

Have a suggestion? Upon request, Admin will consider featuring a more extensive write-up of any user's "brick wall" (or other area of interest).

1892 Marriage of a Sadie VV to George Leflar, d/o Samuel & Alvina VV
1892 Marriage of a Sadie VV to George Leflar, d/o Samuel & Alvina VV

May connect to another "mystery" VV - "Miss Lottie Vann" (see story).

This Sadie and George Leflar, acc to a family tree on Ancestry, had a daughter named Viva Alvina, also the family moved to Genesee Co., Michigan before 1910 where "Sadie" goes by "Sidney" Leflar on all records.

Here's a family that seems to fit - they went by surname VV, Vollick and Vann, apparently... (see attached individuals). In this case, Sadie might be Sarah Catherine VV b. 1 Aug 1874 in Charlotteville.

A 'Miss Vanvalkenburg' marries a James Smith, 1887, Otterville news
A "Miss Vanvalkenburg" marries a James Smith, 1887, Otterville news

A marriage record has not been found to correspond. No indication of where the bride was from, although the news item was posted in the Woodstock Review newspaper in reference to Otterville, in Oxford Co. The groom, being from "east of here" may have been from Norfolk Co.

This may be the marriage of Samuel James Smith and Cynthia Isobel Vollick. If so, Cynthia would have been young, about 15 years old. This couple seem to have started having children five years later.

A mystery Charles VV, based in Sarnia, drowns near Presqu'ile in 1913.
A mystery Charles VV, based in Sarnia, drowns near Presqu'ile in 1913.

It may be wrong to assume this man was born and raised in Sarnia (or even in Canada), as he was a sailor and perhaps Sarnia was chosen as his home port for correspondence.

Possibly the first VanValkenburgs in Canada - brought as captives during the Seven Years' War about 1758?
Possibly the first VanValkenburgs in Canada - brought as captives during the Seven Years' War about 1758?
Excerpts from "New England Captives Carried to Canada between 1677 and 1760 During the French and Indian Wars (Vol. 1) by Emma L. Coleman, 1925. See more pages explaining context, ransoms and naturalizations.

These two (females) were taken from "the Province Lands west of Sheffield". They may be related to Jochem VV, interpreter to the Stockbridge Indians who was based in Nobletown/Hillsdale, NY a few miles west of Sheffield, Mass.

Who is this talkative cousin 'Miss Lottie Vann' in 1896, Chatham, Ontario?
Who is this talkative cousin "Miss Lottie Vann" in 1896, Chatham, Ontario?

(Eighteen year old Lottie VV tattles on her free-spirited cousin while the parents are away).

Article shows once again a name change from VV to Vann. The VV surname was interchanged with Van(n) and Vollick/Follick through many branches. (See another example: third paragraph of the first article).

An 1896 City Directory for Chatham shows two separate lines, one for a Samuel Vann and one for a Lottie Vann, but both of Maple & Queen St. (see bottom-right of this image)

Lottie may be short for Charlotte. She is 18 yrs of age in 1896 so born about 1878. The article implies that "Mr. and Mrs. Vann" are Lottie's parents. She mentions the family have come from a previous place "East" and that they are related to Lefflers.

But first, clues about Bella Acker, a cousin of Lottie:

BIRTH: Isabella Acker b. 21 Apr 1873 to Andrew Acker & Sarah Lefler, Bayham Twp., Elgin Co. Con 6 Lot 12 *subject of the article - (an almost a comical portrayal, but I have one other news item that points to a serious need for Bertha's protection, and Bella's valiant efforts to protect her).

Clues about a Samuel VV who is married to a Alvina Leflar (presumed to be the sister of Bella Acker's mother):

No marriage record has been found for this couple, but they are named in records of daughter "Sadie".

(Try not to get confused as this Sadie, b. abt 1874 in Charlotteville Twp. Norfolk Co., actually marries another Leflar.)

MARRIAGE: Sadie VV b. 1874 Charlotteville Twp. Norfolk Co., d/o Samuel & Alvine VV, m. George H. Laflar b. 1866 Townsend Twp. Norfolk Co., s/o Adam & Nancy Laflar, 20 Oct 1892 at Middlesex Co. (Ontario, Canada) see record (It seems this Sadie and George Lafler moved to Genesee Co., Michigan where Sadie went by "Sidney" Leflar.) George Leflar was the son of Alem O. Leflar and Nancy Slingerland b. 1865.


Here's the family tree for Samuel VV who married a Melvina or Alvina Leflar. Their children were born in Norfolk Twp., specifically the 1874 birth of a daughter Sarah Catherine in Charlotteville Twp. Norfolk Co. *Note that Sadie and George named a daughter Viva Alvina.

About the Reilley family who were known as Lefflers but changed to Reilley for reasons unknown:

Family trees on Ancestry.com have another son of Alem O. Leflar and Nancy Slingerland, the oldest brother of George, named William A. Leflar b. 1848. He and wife Annie Sharp also moved to Genessee Co., Michigan where he and all children were named Riley.

Back to Lottie...

Any thoughts on her identity? Was Sadie known as Charlotte or Lottie? I would like to add Sadie to this tree after hearing from any descendants.
