We have a Ring R. Simonsma born November 11, 1868 in Tyumaarum, Netherlands. Died Apr 01, 1946 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He was married to Minnie Kerkvliet. Minnie was sister to Mary Marie Kerkvliet - my grandmother. Their mother was Cornelia Van Egmond and their father was Gerald Kerkvliet or Garrett Kerkvliet of Vogelenzang, Holland. I have an array of information that I am plowing through on the Kerkvliet, VanAnne (VanHannen), etc. (We have a family reunion every three years and just enjoyed one at Ocean Shores, Washington in July 2008.)
Is your mother Joan Marie born Nov 17, 1956? Was she one of 15 children?
