Up Close with Two Greece Pioneer Families

Event Details

Come meet descendants of two early settlers- the Volkmar and Cole/Kenyon families. Jo Ann Ward Snyder and Maire Poinan interviewed family members when researching their book: Pioneer Families of the Town of Greece.  

Carolyn Kerhaert descends from the VOLKMAR family who came to Greece about 1865 and help found St. John's Church. Cousins Deb Myers and Maureen Murphy are from the COLE family who settled in the area in 1814, before there was Town of Greece or an Erie Canal. 

Community engagement was instrumental in preserving pioneer stories. These descendants became interested in tracing their families' history and having their stories preserved in our Bicentennial book. Feel free to bring your own copy in to be autographed by the authors after the presentation. 

Presented by Jo Ann Ward Snyder and Marie Poinan in cooperation with the Greece Historical Society.
