I can see how this would be very difficult to flesh out if he wasn't married in Holland before he emigrated. Knowing for sure where he was born becomes very crucial since there are literally dozens of small parishes in the area. You have two very common names Jan and Aarts (son of Aart) and maybe the place where he may have been baptized. Anther issue might be with a name like that, he was probably from the lower classes so little chance he owned property which could mean more records: ie last wills. Good luck.
