Hi, I'm looking for descendants from a Boon-family from the Netherlands, I think they lived mainly in the Michigan-area and may be in New Jersey.
My grandmother had 4 brothers who emigrated between
approx 1900-1925 from the Island Texel, The Netherlands.
Klaas born 7 february 1880 Den Burg, Pieter born 7 june 1886 Den Burg, Leonardus born 26 may 1888 Den Burg, Willem Johannes born 19 december 1894.
My grandmother Marie Eelman-Boon born 18 december 1884
married Aris Cornelisz Eelman in 1908 and lived several years in Passaic NJ. My mother (Nelly Gezina) was born there in 1910 5 january
These 5 persons were children of Pieter Boon born 5 april 1851 Den Helder and Gijsje Kindt born 13 march 1855 Den Helder.
I have an old picture of a soldier with probably his wife, a boy and a girl. I think the soldier is Willem Johannes, because on the backside is written For my cousin Nelly (my mother) from uncle Bill. The girl on that picture looks very much like my mother, so I think she is related.
Does this ring a bell to anyone????????
PLEASE EMAIL ME????????
