I am doing research on my husband's family, the Bean's. His GrGrandfather, Nelson Bean (b:1851 d:1917), was married to a lady with the last name of VanAntwerp. I do not know her first name, but they had 4 children together, Ida (1875),Rose (1878),Charley (1880) and Dora (1882). He was either widowed or divorced because by 1894 he was remarried to an Anna Marshall (Bean) and had more children with her...eleven to be exact! I have lost contact with Nelson at Cedar Creek Twp in Muskegon MI from 1871-1894 where he showed up with his wife (Anna) and 5 children. Do you have any info on the VanAntwerp/Bean in 1870's-1880's? Actually, Ida and Rose were raised by a family of Jules Remeur in Kalamazoo MI...why, I don't know. Hope you can help to fill in the blanks!! Thank you.
