Msg just sent to a Marsha Mott returned to me so I am posting here to see if any nibbles.
Marsha: Jules married my great aunt Lily Belle Murray Brown Appleman and lived in Henryetta, Okmulgee, Oklahoma, he died in 1965.
Jules born March 4, 1881 in Belgium, LaCroix -Were passengers arriving on SS Zaandam to NY from Amsterdam, Oct 3, 1883, states he was naturalized 1885.
On the ships passenger list, page 1, pax 3,4,5,6,7 are listed Appelman or Appleman as follows, 7 is Jules at age 4, pax 3, appears to be Augustus ?age44, 4 is Marie b 1855, 5 Marie, dau age 14, 6 ??? a son. So we have mom,dad and 3 children.
Jules WWI draft card states coalminer, grey eyes and white hair???. I find he and Belle married in several census in Oklahoma. I have not found anyone else in my research.
Can or would you fill me in on any info on the clan. Names, naturalized, et al. Crazy Ancestry not providing info on them other than pax list..
Thanks, Bob Long
