About The Vandenberg/Avant Families
On November 11th, 2012, Bill "Coach" Avant passed away. He was surrounded by his loving wife  Fredabeth "Baba", and daughters Lee and Marci and son Joe.

We will all miss him very much.
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My wife, Lee Avant, traces her family back through William Troy Avant and Fredabeth Hargis Avant.  Significant family names on her side are Ballew, Thomison (or Thomason), Scenter, Tucker,  Pattrick,and Henson. It's a little difficult to trace some of the family as they are descendants of  the Cherokee and other civilized tribes.

My family goes back through Paul Peter Vandenberg and Margaret Zwicker Vandenberg. Other  significant family names are Ryan, Van Den Heuvel, Van Baardwijk, Bevers, Rumboluin, and Murphy.

Please sign the Guest Book at the top of this page. Everyone who comes here would LOVE to 
know that you have visited.

I highly recommend that you read some of the "Stories" that are linked at the top this home page. 
Ballew History by Donald Ballew is a very moving recounting of life and death early last 
century in Oklahoma.

For the Vandenbergs and Vandenheuvels, check out the link at the top of this page to the  Vandenberg Wedding 1913. When you get to Chris Bever's photo page, go to the bottom of the page.

If our family and yours have common ancestors, I look forward to hearing from you.

 Dick Vandenberg
