Thank you very much for including my family name in this history. I have been searching for a long time to no avail.
Lambert de Nieuwerkerk was my great-great-grandfather. He died in 1859 and is buried in Berbice (I believe at St. Mary's Church).
His widow, Mary (born in Scotland), lived in New York City between 1867 and 1873, but I know nothing further about her. At least two of her sons were with her.
Could anyone supply me with further information? Are there any Nieuwerkerks living in Guyana today? Who is Alick Nieuwerkerk - any relation (I do not know the name)?
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
