RE: Randall T VanValkenburgh
Thank you so much for the reply. Perhaps you can help me. My maternal grandmother was Clara Geraldine Van Valkenburg. I believe she was born in 1905 in Manchester, Mich., and passed about 1939-1940 in a sanitorium from Tuberculosis. She was married and divorced from Jay Dewey Thorne. Geraldine's parents were Charles Jewell Van Valkenburg and Ida B. Hendershot. Charles father was Randall Archie Thompkins Van Valkenburgh.
I am looking for more birth or death information on Geraldine if you know of any? And, I was told by my mother that Randall V.V. Had enlisted in the civil war at the age of 14 as a drummer boy. I have been trying to find some confirmation of that. Is there any chance you can be of help with either of these mysteries? My thanks in advance.

Howard V V et al
Hi Sandra,
Sorry I have been away so long, I have been digging up info on Howard and his son, Ted.

I have found someone who worked on father and son's estates and I called to see if they would share any family information.

Hopefully they will come up with something, but the holidays have really messed up the schedules.

I hope to post something on their Find A Grave sites in Feb.

Many thanks for your reply and I will keep you posted if you are interested.

Greetings Sandra!

I believe I am Howard's first cousin, two generations removed, and I am a 3rd cousin to the living VVB's.

Howard's mother, Clara Louise Walker, and my great grandfather, George B Walker, were siblings.

I have been trying to find her descendants and I just missed Theodore Van Valkenbburgh, as he died in 2008, just before I "found" him. I believe Theodore was Howard's son by wife Jean Furness, who he married on 18 June, 1918.

I do not know any of Theodore's children, and I believe him to perhaps be an only child. If you are related to me or if any of the other posters are, it would be nice to fill in some holes in the genealogy.



Many thanks for reading this and I am grateful for any help you can give me in finding the living cousins.

Dear Sandra: I just left a photo for Evelyn VanVolkenburg, number 71378903. I noticed you left her flowers. Is she a member of your family? Do you think this photo looks like her?
