I have traced my family roots back to Hedel in Gelderland.
My gggrandfather was Johannes VAN EWEIJK (or EEUWEIJK) b. 1813.
He had a sister Elizabeth b. 1810, also in Hedel.
Johannes m. Marie VAN ERD b. 1817 Sint Oedenrode, Nord Brabant.
They had two children: Henrikus and Maria Helena when they arrived in USA in 1854.
Father of Johannes was Gijsburtus VAN EEUWEIJK b. 1784 in Driel and
mother was Helena (or Johanna) Maria VAN VEGGEL m. 1802 in Hedel.
Have traced family back further in Driel. Where is or was Driel? Is this near Hedel?
I am hoping to find someone in the Netherlands who is from this family line.
I have much to share regarding family since their arrival in USA.
