                                                              Cordova Mines April 25th

Mr Paul VanValkenburgh Dear friend your letter received

Some time ago. And I have delade answering as I have

been trying to get the inermation you ask for it

is hard to find any one that remembers so far back

from what I can learn Jacob came to this country with

his father Paul about the year 1790 I cannot learn

whether he had any brothers. they came from Holland

to America first. then came to Ontario and lived

on a farm near Brockville. I do not know whare

Paul was buried. Nor when he died. I believe Jacob

was buried at Brockville. that place is 100 miles

from whare I live and I do not know any one

there. If one was there they might learn something

from some of the old residents. your Aunt lives

 75 miles from where I live. however if there is

anything I learn later I will write you. hoping

this may be of some help I remain & sincerely

yours 

                          John VanVolkenburg
