Surnames: Sterenberg
The familyname Sterenberg seems to be popular in Groningen. In Genlias are 143 grooms with this familyname, Of those are 116 in Groningen, 8 in Drenthe, 7 in Friesland, 9 in Gelderland I did not look for the remaining 3. The oldest one is in 1811 when Hindrik Sterenberg, born 3 april 1782 in Appingedam, married in Appingedam. The site www.allegroningers.nl has the baptizms, marriages and burials before 1812 of Appingedam online. At the baptizm uses the father a patronymic, but the mother uses familyname Sterenberg. See attachment. http://www.meertens.knaw.nl/nfd/ tells us that Sterenberg is an address name, probably the name of a farm somewhere in Groningen

Hello Warmly,

I did not find John Sterenberg, but i did find Jan Sterenberg. He married Martha Oosting 20-03-1890 in 't Zandt, Groningen, the Netherlands.
Jan was born in Godlinze, Groningen, the Netherlands.
Martha was born in 't Zandt.
The parents of Jan are Jan Eltjes Sterenberg and Anje Bouwman.
The parents of Martha are Pieter Oosting and Sophia Heukers.
When they married Jan was 31 years old, Martha 24 years.

Was one of the children born before the weddingdate of Jan and Martha?

Please let me know if this is the right family. When they are i will search further for you, i think there is more to ffind.

Greetings Marie-Anne

Yes this is them. That is the family, I don't know if they had a child before they were married, but it is possible. Anything you find is greatly appreciated, however if you want me to look I will. Can you advise where you are looking, is it a free site? Thank you so much.

Warmly.

The name Stereberg originates in the Province of Groningen in The Netherlands.
The name John was probably Johannes or Jan
