Always wondered why the many VONVILLE and VON VILLEdescendants in USA were all from the same French family. Maybe others came here which were cousins to my VONVILLE Vonvill Vonwill family and changed the first letter to F. In Europe in some countries V is pronounced sounding like an American F.

Have VON VILLE VONVILLE VONWILLE VONWILL VONVILL back to 1700s in Alsace FR. (Ottrott) Some by this name still live there in that town.

M Von Ville from the Columbus, Ohio Von Villes
