      [With them is a John VV also b. Quebec. Is this Lavina's brother or cousin? He is with the family in 1851 and 1861. Perhaps he is the same "Uncle John" VV who later was living with a nearby VV family in Storrington Twp. on the 1871 census and at his 1879 death? The household next to them are a Lyman Pixley family, also intermarried with the Storrington VV family.]
