I am looking for anyone with the last name BUSKENS. They were, at one time, from Nijmegen, which I think is in the Gelderland area. I am very new at this genealogy stuff. John Henry BUSKENS married Marie Johanna ROELOFS, who was from a family of farmers living in Mook on the Maas River (just south of Nijmegen. They came to US around 1880-1890 and settled in Chicago. He was a bricklayer.

We have Mass cards and photos of many of the family from Holland: John A. BUSKENS, Willem BUSKENS (in a military uniform), Grada, Dina, Mary, Gerrit, Everdina.

Even the smallest bit of information would be appreciated.
