Will recorded Stokes Co. will book 1, p. 14

Foulke Lupfer genealogy gives his birth year as 1721. Records 4:1923 says 1722, as does Bethania graveyard record.

Records 1:375, July 23, 1768, For some days the weather has been very hot and oppressive, with frequent thunderstorms. As Andreas Volk and his wife were approaching Bethania there was a sharp clap of thunder, the horse reared, the girth broke, and the saddle and Volk fell one way, and his wife fell the other. Neither was hurt.

2:735, May 20, 1772. Andreas Volk and six of his neighbors from the New Garden Settlement have been to the Allimance, where the battle with the Regulators was fought last year, and have secured 3000 lbs. of flour, at 15 shillings per 100 lbs.

May 27. Andreas Volk was given a Certificate which frees him from attending Muster. A number have been issued this year, as the Captains are insisting on it in their districts.

5:2137. April 10, 1786. Br. Beck gave in the names of the friends near Bethania who wish to be received into the Society, namely, John and Anna Maria Krause and their two daughters, Margaretha and Maria; Johann and Maria Volk; Jacob and Johanna Volz; and the unmarried Andreas Volk. 5:2156 records that they were admitted to the Bethania society. Andreas is referred to as a youth.

Elizabeth Harris had his death listed as Surry Co. NC, but since Stokes was formed from Surry in 1789, and his will is recorded in Stokes, she suspects the death was there.
