Hi to both of you --- I am a Breuklander and live in Indianola, Ia...my great great grandfather was Cornelius Breuklander also....I know very little about this family but am just bowled over to find the name listed at all. I've been told that Cornelius and Catherine came to Pella in 1849 directly from Holland and they had 12 children. I have no idea if this is accurate or not. Indianola is about 30 miles from Pella. My great grandfather was Hi Breuklander - I believe it was Hiram. (married a Marie De Boer, I'm not sure how many children they had) and my grandfather was Harry Breuklander who grew up in Indianola and moved to Long Beach, CA in 1958. My father is Gerald (Jack) Breuklander. He resides in CA. I have 1 aunt and 1 uncle still living. The aunt, Betty (Breuklander) Hull, lives in Indianola and the uncle, Sam Breuklander, lives in Long Beach, CA.. My grandparents - Harry & Dora (Cheshire) Breuklander had 6 children who all grew up in the Indianola area.
As a young child I remember going to a few Breuklander reunions but have no recollection of who the Breuklanders were that were there or who organized the reunions.
I hope to hear from you and would gladly offer an assistance that I can.

I know of Breuklander families that live in the Knoxville and Oskaloosa areas that I'm certain are relatives but I don't know how.

Hi Lori,
I have in my file a Cornelus Breuklander born
sept 1855 married to Catharine Van Steenis in Marion County on August 02, 1879. I Have his father as Albert Breuklander who arrived in America on 6/26/1856. In the 1860 census he lived in
State: Iowa
County: Marion
Township: Lake Prairie
Ward: 1
Census Year: **** 1860 ****
With his wife Marietje and his children, Heerbertje Breuklander and Cornelus Breuklander and Kaasje Breuklander. Cornelus also had a son he named Cornelious Breuklander born in Pella on July 22, 1888. He died September 19, 1959 in Harvey Iowa. He married Katie Faye Fraaken on August 19, 1908 in Pella Iowa.

My g-grandmother was Heintje Breuklander who married Arie Hoogenakker. I have not been able to link Cornelus and her together, however I believe they were related some how.

Finally find a message board about the Breuklanders, I live in Des Moines, and am a distant relative on this side of the family through the Den Boer side. I am looking for information on Huibert Breuklander who married Mary/Maria Den Boer and had several children, Huibert died in 1927 and is buried in Milo, Iowa, or the area of Milo. I am trying to find out who Huibert's parents are, think they are the Cornelius and Catharine. I live in Des Moines. Would love to hear from you, hope you are still in the Indianaola area. Linda

Just found this board, I am trying to unravel the Breuklander family, hoping you can help. I am trying to find Huibert Breuklander who married Maria/Mary Den Boer, Huibert died in 1927, living in Milo, Iowa. Know he had 6 children, Nellie who married a Amos Trusler, Leendert who married a Bertha Brees, Katherina, Harry, Johanna, who died at 7 months of age from burns from an accident, which I think her father may have suffered burns also, and a Leona or Margaret Leona.
I think Huibert's father was a Cornelius, and his parents were Cornelius and Catherine Van Steenis.

Would be glad to hear from you, Linda

Hubert is buried in Nebraska...at least I thought he was. Marie is buried in Milo....Hubert and Marie were my great grandparents....my grandfather was Harry Breuklander. And you are correct about Cornelius & Catherine being Hubert's parents...I've never seen the Huibert spelling before though. Only Hubert. Email me directly at jmr817@aol.com and I will give you my aunt's telephone number here in Indianola. I'd love to share what I know and hopefully share what you know about this Breuklander clan. Best wishes to you. Jacci
