    MARRIAGE - David Lake--Mary E. Himes-Ballard-1916
    MARRIAGE - David Lake--Mary E. Himes-Ballard-1916

    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. **

    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.
