Starting from my Grandparents - focusing on my grandfather side - being the KWANTEN family blood line.

Nicholaas Marie Kwantens parents were Pieter Jan Hubert Kwanten 1871 - ? born in Horst, Dongen, Noord-Braben, Netherlands who married Henrica Hermina Thijssen ? - ? born in Boxmeer, Noord-Brabent, Netherlands - married in Boxmeer, Noord-brabant, Netherlands on 4/9/1900.

Pieter Jan Hubert Kwanten's parents were Jan Kwanten ? - ? birth and death (unknown) who married Antonetta Huberta Drissen ? - ? birth and death (Unknown). Pieter had a brother called Michiel Martin Kwanten 1869-1930 born in Horst, Dongen. Noord-Brabent, Natherlands and died in Nijmegen, Gelderland, Netherlands. Michiel Martin Kwanten was married to Anna Maria Wilhelmia van de Ven who died in 1949.
Jan Kwanten's parents are unknown and where the link becomes unclear - which is what I am trying to locate.
Further to this - If you follow Henrica Hermina Thijssen's side of the family (she was married to Pieter Jan Hubert Kwanten) her father was Henricus Johannes Thijssen ? - 1912 - he died in Boxmeer, Noord-Brabant and Mother Theodora Sibilla Hombergen ? - 1881 she died in Boxmeer, Noord-Brabant. They both had Children named Anna Theodora who died in 1900, Cornelis Antonius Hubert, Henrica Hermina, Wilhelmus Herbertus.
Henricus Johannes Thijssen's parents were Cornelis Antoon Thijssen and Anna Gertrudis van Dijck. Thats as far as I know on that one.
Theodora Sibilla Hombergen's parents were Wilhelmus Hubertus Hombergen and Theodora Van den Wollenberg.
I hope this helps someone in their search.
