    Marriage: David Lake to Mary E. Himes-Ballard, 1916, California
    Marriage: David Lake to Mary E. Himes-Ballard, 1916, California

    This is the second marriage for both. ** Note David's mother's name stated as Juliann FOLLICK, whereas other of his records and siblings records give VANVALKENBURGH. Follick/Vollick is a fairly common switch for VanValkenburgh especially in Niagara and South-West Ontario. Here is evidence of the FOLLICK family name in use originating instead in Eastern Ontario. **
    Second marriage of David Lake to Mary Himes Ballard, Los Angeles, California, 1916
    Second marriage of David Lake to Mary Himes Ballard, Los Angeles, California, 1916

    NAMES his mother Juliane FOLLICK, an alternate spelling of the surname, unusual for having sourced in Eastern Ontario.

    Histories
    IGI file notes for David Lake (1843-1923) son of Nathan Lake and Juliane FOLLICK and birthplace stated as 'Cranberry Lake', Ontario.

    The LDS Church has user-submitted sources for Julia Ann VV's surname as Follick. Follick is a common switch for VV (see evidence). I suspect that the source records will be marriage / death or military records for David Lake. Another reference mentions the death record of David's sister Adeline Lake-Landgraf where the parents are named Nathan Lake and Unknown Vanvolkenfing.

    Locations of Lavina VV-SEARS (pink), Julia Ann VV-LAKE (yellow) from the 1851 census, compared to locations of Quebec-based VV family David VV - Lucy Miller (green).

    Updated (salmon-colour) with the location of the family lot of Emma, widow of an Allan VV, who sold this lot in 1851, later purchasing a nearby lot in the same township. One child of this couple was born at Brewers Mills, a town on the east side of Cranberry Lake.

    The lots are shown on an 1860 atlas. By 1860 the Lakes had moved to the USA, and the Sears family was still at the Loughborough location, but not on the atlas, perhaps because Hezekiah Sears was a shoemaker and not a land owner? The lot to the north is Lyman Pixley whose son married a daughter of David VV. Also, for many years the Sears family had a VV man living with them, perhaps John VV, brother of David VV.

    No records yet have been found to prove blood relation of these mystery VV women to each other or to the David VV-Lucy-MILLER line. Research is ongoing.
