    News of a set-back for Adam VV family of Marburg, Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co. in 1897
    News of a set-back for Adam VV family of Marburg, Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co. in 1897

    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
