I thought this would be a good time for me to post my information on the Volner family board.My Volner family line stars with William and Frances (Sareton) Volner.William and Frances' son, Benjamin A. Volner/Vaulner, was my great-grandfather.Benjamin married Mary Ellen Lassiter in 1874 in Independence County, AR.They had 13 children in all, with 8 living to grow up and have families of their own.Ben and Mary's son, Perry Monroe, was my grandfather.Perry Monroe's daughter, Mary Evelyn Vaulner Graves, was my mother.
The Volner name was changed to Vaulner after Ben and Mary's marriage in AR.The census records have them recorded with various spellings of the Volner name.The Vaulner spelling stuck with our family line throughout the years.
I have Benjamin and Mary's children and descendants traced over the 131 year time span as much as can possibly be traced at this time.There is a Benjamin A. and Mary Ellen (Lassiter) Family Reunion which takes place on July 14-16, 2006 at the Hutchinson Mountain Community Center in Floral/Batesville, AR.Any and all are welcome to attend.For more information, just email me!
I would like to take this time to say a huge "THANK YOU" to LaVelda Faull for her years of time and research spent tracing the Volner family. Without her dedication and relentless research, the Volner family history would not be as complete as it is and none of us would know our Volner heritage.THANK YOU, LaVelda!!!!
Good luck to all in tracing your Volner family lines! Bonnie L. Graves firstname.lastname@example.org Sherman, TX
