This family is not yet connected to the official genealogy of the VanValkenburg family on the NAVVF site.

In coming months we will be adding photos and scans of original documents directly to individuals in each tree. (We welcome your help with this and you may use this form to contact us or to join this collaborative project as a Contributor).

This Margaret VV b. 1825 in Nelson Twp., Halton Co. married Roger Conant in Toronto and eventually the family moved to Michigan.  The first children were born in Pickering, Darlington Twp., Ontario Co. just east of Toronto (area of the Conant family).

Other VV families in Nelson Twp. lived near Lowville and Kilbride, bordering on Wentworth Co.  They used surname Vollick but often interchanged between that and VV.  Maybe an obituary from Michigan will shed light on Margaret's roots.

Update: The 1887 Conant family genealogy: "A history and genealogy of the Conant family in England and America, thirteen generations, 1520-1887", Frederick Odell Conant, was written at the time that first-hand information could be supplied.  The parents of Margaret VV are stated to be Peter Van Valkenburg and Nancy Ayreheart, and that Margaret was b. 3 Dec 1825 in Nelson Twp.  (see pages 423 and 493).
