    DEATH REGISTER - Joseph VanValkenburg (1854-1926)
    DEATH REGISTER - Joseph VanValkenburg (1854-1926)
    Simcoe, Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co., Ontario

    Joseph was single, and an "inmate" at the "County Home" (poor house). The record says he was buried in Delhi. His mother's maiden name is stated: "Long".
    DEATH REGISTER - Sarah Long-VanValkenburg (1812-1872)
    DEATH REGISTER - Sarah Long-VanValkenburg (1812-1872)
    Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co., Ontario

    Her maiden name confirmed by son Joseph VV's death record. Her approximate date of birth can be estimated. Is Sarah Long descended from an original Long Point Settler? [The informant on this record, Samueal Ebersole, was a minister, probably unrelated to Sarah.]

      [The VV family is living with a young Fulton family and Martha Fulton is of age to be the daughter of the VVs and shares their "German" ethnicity. However research suggests this is the unrelated Martha Hagerman-Fulton. On past and future census returns, the VV's are not with them.]
