How about that. Cornelius and Hendrick are my ancestors as well. I believe there are a bunch of relatives buried in the old cemetery in Bridghampton, L.I. Cornelius' cobbler's shop is part of a historical building collection. Hendrick fought in the Battle of Ticonderoga and was a POW in Wallabout Bay off the Brooklyn shore. He did move the family to Fort Lee before going upstate. There is a Vunk Road outside of Gloversville, near Albany; it dead-ends at the reservoir. (Figures- leave prime real estate in the Hamptons and move to a future reservoir...) My nephew has more information- I will try to get him to send it to me.
My Vunk connection is Grandfather John R. Vunk, born in Virgil, NY in 1874. He went to Cortland Normal School (now SUNY College at Cortland, where I got my BA), moved to Patchogue, LI and became a teacher and eventually a lawyer and a judge. He had, I think, two brothers, but only one brother, Lyman, lived to adulthood. His sister Julia never married. My mother, Cynthia Vunk McInerney still lives in Patchogue. Her brothers, John Jr. (Jack), Stephen, and Hubbard are all deceased. Jack and Hubbard had children,but we have lost touch. Stephen had a daughter named Georgiana (not the same Georgi as on this list, I don't think!) but we lost track of her after she was given up for adoption (loooong story).
