Searching for Fred Vander Bos b. Nov. 21, 1845 and wife Janna Spoolstra b.March 1851, lived in Groningen. They married in 1879. Emigrated to U.S. in approx 1887/8.
Children b. in Groningen were; Mary b. 1880, Janyke b. 1881, Jacob, John, and Anna. Twins Dave and Neal were b. Chicago, IL. Oral tradition also mentions Western New Land Netherlands as birthplace of the children. Their emmigration ship collided mid-Atlantic with another ship and the survivors of the other ship were picked up by my Grandmother Jenny's (Janyke's) ship. Their religion was
Christian Reformed. I would appreciate any help and would be glad to share any information that I have. Thank you.
