Thanks again Marianne.

I started with basic info on Charles Mindon Prins,
b. 26 Dec 1896 in Muskegon. d. 10 Aug 1965 St. Petersburg FL
This Charles had 2 or 3 marriages and I am following the last one to Pauline Van Auker in 1930 in Steuben, IN. He lists his parents as Charles Prins and Minnie Van Gorden.

His father was Charles Prins (possibly Sr.),
believed to be born in Holland
Mother was Minnie (Mina) Van Gorden. Her parents Alonzo &
Hannah (Anna) raised Charles Jr. from birth as their daught-
er Minnie died in childbirth.

I have followed Charles Sr. He had several marriages ending with Letta (Lettie) at his death in 1910 in Muskegon.
Michigan death records (3 types) give the most info including his parents' names: John Prins and Grace Bishop, both born in the Netherlands. Also give his birth date as 20 Nov 1866. His birth was most likely in the Netherlands.

Does this date mathes the date of John & Grace's child Klaas? Could Klaas become Charles in the U.S.??
