I am searching for information on Nicholas Toren. I do not have specific location but on Census reports and family accounts I know that he was from the Netherlands. His wife's name was Jenny/Jennie and they came to America somewhere around the turn of the century. Probably more toward the late 1800's.
I am also searching for information on Henry Holtrust or Fredricha van der Woude. They had 8 children: Alice, Bertha, Rudy, Bessie, Minnie, Margaret, John, and Jeanette. They came to America sometime around the turn of the century as well.
Both of these families immigrated to Cook County, Illinois.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
