Dear Mr. Roll,


I am responding to your email on behalf of my husband, Ken Huffman.


We live in Virginia, and like many other USGenWeb coordinators, we manage our website from a distance, so to speak. So, we are not very familiar with the living individuals of Brown County per se. I suggest that you contact the Versailles Area Genealogical & Historical Society ( They may know Mike Volk personally, or someone in his family, and could put you in contact with them. The book, Cemeteries of Brown County, Illinois 1825-1972 was published in 1975, and Mr. Volk may still be living, and in that local area.


For reference purposes, the Volk family history referred to in the email is found in The History of Brown County, Illinois, and is about 1 1/4 columns on pages 306-307.


I'm sorry we could not be of more direct assistance in this matter.


Best of luck in your search,


Laurie Huffman

Brown County ILGenWeb Co-Coordinator
