    Historical Atlases of the Varty Lake / Colebrook area of Camden Twp., Lennox & Addington Co. in 1860 and 1878.

    Shows properties of G. VanVolkenburgh at Con. 2 Lot 39 west of Colebrook. Note also the 1860 property at Lot 38 to the NW. For modern location, enter 44.383563,-76.800442 into Google Maps address bar.

    See a list of other nearby VV locations, including Gilbert VV's brother Paulus's property (and their Friends (Quaker) Meeting House to the north at Moscow.

    Historical Atlas of the Long Lake area of Olden Twp. and the future location of the village of Parham to the south in Hinchinbrooke Twp., Frontenac Co. in 1860.

    Shows property of S. "Valkenberg" (Sylvester VV) in 1860, above Long Lake at Con. 5 Lot 2 Olden Twp. For modern location, enter 44.678052,-76.789284 into Google Maps address bar.

    This location is noted also in the 1865 list of VV land holdings written by Dr. H.C. Burleigh.

    For location of Parham village 44.656443,-76.717186. Parham is recorded as the burial place of Sylvester VV's mother Asenath Vosburgh. On this 1860 Atlas no village shows, but my guess is that it is at the location marked "inn" just south-west of Eagle Lake. The 1878 Meacham Atlas did not publish landholder names for the northern townships, but a general overview map of Hinchinbrook Twp. shows a dot for Parham.

    Note the Cronk family in the vicinity, in particular S. Cronk as co-occupant of the lot with Sylvester VV in Olden Twp. but also an S. Cronk in the bottom-left section of this map on what is Con. 6 Lot 24 of Hinchinbrooke Twp. This is the future home of Cecilia Switzer-Cronk, a grand-niece of Sylvester VV.

    From the private research notes of Dr. H.C. Burleigh (1893-1980), unsourced records - perhaps from a gazetteer or farmer's directory.

    A Storrington property, Lennox-Addington Co. is shown in 1860 and 1878 atlases here.

    The Camden East, Lennox-Addington Co. properties are shown in 1860 and 1878 atlases here.

    The Olden Twp., Frontenac Co. property is shown in 1860 here. The 1878 atlas doesn't seem to have included detailed views of the northern townships.

    The Ernesttown Twp., Lennox-Addington Co. property did not show a VV name on either atlas.

    Names were included on maps by subscription, and perhaps subscribers only paid to have their primary residences shown.
