My husband's grandfather - Jan SCHELLEN and his family - lived in Rotterdam sometime around 1910, and he was a 'kleermaker' (tailor), who had a shop in Horst, which closed down sometime around then. His wife was a VAN RENS from nearby Venlo. When he shifted to Rotterdam, some of his family relatives moved at that time to other places, such as Eindhoven, Nijmijgen, Oss, s'Hertogenbosch, Tilburg, etc. We are looking for information about any SCHELLEN descendants from any one of these other localities. Earlier on, some of Jan's ancestors included a Balthazar SCHELLEN, born in Eindhoven in 1776, but died in Horst in 1851. He lived with his son Willem, who lived at 193 Heerstraat, Horst - at that time. Willem's 2 sons Pieter Jan and Pieter Antoon both had shops in Horst in the late 1800's, but by 1904 had sold these and moved away. Pieter Antoon was the father of Jan (mentioned above).

I am sorry that I cannot understand Dutch, but my husband can translate a bit. I would like to communicate in English, if possible. Thank you.
