Hi, John Ellis... THANK YOU for merging the two Hendrick Falkenburgs. I know there are a lot of different spellings for the Fortenberry name.... I'll just stick with what is on the documentation we are finding. YES, pickins are slim for the generation right at Hendrick Jacobs Falkenburg and his children, but my sister, Andie, has found a packet of documents.. in... of all places, KENTUCKY that explains a lot about their migration into Virginia and a little more about family relationships. IF YOU DO NOT MIND, once Andie publishes her findings on her blog, I will use her research (yes, she gives her blessings) and update the Fortenberry story. If you wish, I may be contacted through email,

Thanks again.... Teresa
