Apolonius Cornelis WESTERBEEK/WESTERBEKE b. Denekamp 1894

I have a trove of photographs and documents from my great-uncle Apolonius Cornelis "Bill" WESTERBEEK, a farmer in Yuma, Arizona. He was born in Denekamp, Overijseel, Netherlands in 1894 and died in Yuma in the early 1980's. He was the husband of my grandfather's sister Miriam Theodora "Teddy" BROWN, and served as an intelligence officer and translator in the U.S. Navy during WW2.

Some of the photographs look like they would be parents, uncles, cousins, etc., taken a hundred years ago or more, so I suppose there may be some genealogical value to family members who still live in the Netherlands.

Bill and Teddy never had any children. As the family historian I inherited all this stuff, but it really has no bearing on my own family, and so I would like to get it to one of his family members who might appreciate having it. Reply to this message.
