I have found that a Frans Naeyert arrived by the ship Canton on November 11, 1854.
I can not locate any decendants of Frans, or from my great grandfather Charles Lewis Naeyert born: 1883 to 1951.
There are many Nayaert's in Michigan and Belgium.
There are also Naeyert and Naeyaert that may be related but I can not find family trees that may link us at this time.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
