    MARRIAGE - William Vann--Jane Hewitt-1887
    MARRIAGE - William Vann--Jane Hewitt-1887

    Waterford, ON
    DEATH REGISTER - William VanVoltenburg (1850-1914)
    DEATH REGISTER - William VanVoltenburg (1850-1914)
    Simcoe, Norfolk Co., Ontario

    William's surname was VV and Van, interchangeably. Like his brother Joseph, William died while living at the "County Home" (poor house) in Simcoe, Ontario. His headstone at Vanessa Cemetery uses surname "Van" and the same death date shown here.
    MARRIAGE - Albert Garret--Bessie Vann-1905
    MARRIAGE - Albert Garret--Bessie Vann-1905
    19 Jul 1905 at Haldimand Co.

    Note she gives her parents' names as Wm. Vann and Jessie Glover, and this is the same mother named in records of sister May Stured-McPhail.

    1912 - Bessie crosses to Detroit Michigan under name Bessie Garrett b. 1889 Waterford, Ontario, but gives marital status as single.
    https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KZ1L-8C6

    Bessie remarried Dan McLellan after 1917 (Dan was still single on military and immigration records at 1917).
    MARRIAGE - Frank McPhail--May Stured-1904
    MARRIAGE - Frank McPhail--May Stured-1904
    15 Nov 1904 at Elgin Co.

    Note: May's parents stated to be Harvey Stured and Jennie Glover. By records, May and sister Bessie Vann share the same mother: Jessie Glover-Stured/Steward. This may be a case of a widowed Jess/nnie having one child with William Vann, and Vann adopting an earlier child of Jessie's by Harvey Steward?
    Last Will and Testament of Jacob VanVolkingburgh, 1872, Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co.
    Last Will and Testament of Jacob VanVolkingburgh, 1872, Woodhouse Twp., Norfolk Co.
    See transcription here.

    Jacob made the will dated 27 Apr. 1872 and it was executed after his decease on 27 Sep 1873.

    His wife Sarah had pre-deceased. All named children from the 1861 census were still living at this time, and the will indicates the marriage partners of some of the daughters.

    Daughter Rachel VV disposed of her parcel of land in 1876 shortly before her marriage.

      [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.]
