Thank you so much for the information. Since my last post I have found out the father of Ben Schuur was Hindrik Schuur b. 10 Nov 1859 inj Finsterwolde d. unknown. Ben Schuur's mother was Anna Knapper b. 24 Dec 1861 in Nieuw Scheemda d. unknown.
Here is a list of his siblings according to information on Gencircle.com by Fr Schwartz:
Berend Schuur b. 28 Dec 1883 in Midwolda
Tammo Schuur b. 9 Sept 1885 in Finsterwolde
Wiegman Schuur b. 8 Oct 1887 in Finsterwolde (also came to USA)
Albertus Schuur b. 4 Oct in Finsterwolde
Geessien Schuur b. 30 Oct 1893 in Finsterwolde
Jantje Schuur b. 16 Feb 1877 in Midwolda
Tjaardina Schuur b. 31 May 1883 in Midwolda
I don't know how accurate this information is. Tjaardina Schuur and Berend Schuur's birthdates are 7 months apart. But Berend could have been born premature(?). The rest of his information from Ben Schuur and his descendants is accurate except one entry.
Could someone tell me if there was something going on in the Netherlands at that time that would have made these people move so much. I have a picture of Ben Schuur as a young man (probably abt 20 years old) in a uniform with a sword on his belt.
