This Research page contains material which may not be included in my manuscript The Falkenburgs
An American Colonial Family: Chapter 5 California Gold
. In There are two reasons this material does not appear in the manuscript. First, in an effort to manage the size of the book or the flow of the story, I decided that some details should be relegated to research notes. In other cases, I simply don't know all of the facts needed to make a coherent presentation. Those notes are found here. In many cases they are notes to myself and may not represent fully explored and documented fact. If you have navigated to this page from a Google search, and you have not seen my manuscript, you may wish to follow the link below for a more complete story of the colonial roots of the Falkenburg/Falkinburg family.

Death Notice William Van Voohris

This is dated 11 JUN 1859. This may be my great grandfather William Van Voohris. My great grandmother Emma Van Voohris was born 1851; this is likely her father (my great-great grandfather). The death notice indicates his reseidence was 31 Fleet Street, Brooklyn, NY. He was 40 years old at the time of his death. This would establish his birth year as ABT 1819. The funeral was held at the Fleet Street Methodist Episcopal Church. This is the same church in which Emma (Van Voohris) married George W. Robbins.
