I'm searching for information on Gijsbert van Houwelingen's family tree - he was born on 3 July 1768 in Kedichem, South Holland, Netherlands and he died on the voyage to America aboard the Maasstroom on 25 April 1847. He was married to Egtje van den Berg, who was born on 20 May 1770 in Nieuwland, South Holland. His son Gijsbert van Houwelingen was born 2 January 1813 in Meerkerk, and he settled with his family in Pella, Iowa, USA in 1847. I've traced his family tree as far back as Gijsbert Herbertse Van Houwelingen (his grandfather) who was born around 1690 in Leerbroek, South Holland. Any information would be appreciated!
