Notes about Truman VV (1834-1916) based on reminiscences of son Thaddeus Edward VV and grand-daughter Dorothy Eileen VV-Brooks.

This branch of the VV family were living in Norwich, Oxford Co., Ontario by 1840. Hand-written genealogical notations on file at the Norwich Archives. (Note: progenitor Cornelius VV was not an UEL, but his wife Lois Davis was a DUE.)

The notes refer to Truman VV's time in Chicago when expelled from school probably 1845-1855 time period. His father sent him to live with three uncles living near Chicago. These are probably Hiram VV's two brothers-in-law: Robert B. Chisholm and Atwood Sackrider, and/or Hiram's brothers: Cornelius VV and Noah VV who had followed Chisholm to Elgin, Illinois on lumber importing for the Chicago Harbour construction, and then were in south Wisconsin on mining prospects.
