Stijl (Spelled STYLE in the USA) family name

Posted: 1168373907000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Stijl, Verhoeve, De Dreu, Van De Griek
My great-grandfather was Frederick (Frank) Style who was born in Holland around 1877. His parents were named Andrew and Johanna. I found records through Genlias that show an Andries Stijl married to Johanna Verhoeve in 1865 in Dirksland.

On the mother's side of my father was my great-great-grandparents Pieter De Dreu and Neeltje Van De Griek and their daughter Kaatje born Oct. 9 1893 in Yerseke, Holland.

I have traced through the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census records of Islip, Suffolk, Long Island, New York that all my ancestors who came to America to be Oysterman who worked the Great South Bay.

I also found a Gerardus Van Ysseldyke married to a Johanna in America who had listed in the 1900 census a step-son named John Style who I assume to be Johanna's son of a previous marriage.

The problem I've run into is there is not a single United States immigration record of Andries Style (Stijl), Johanna Style (Stijl) Frederick "Frank" Style (Stijl), John Style (Stijl), Peter De Dreu, Neeltje De Dreu, Kaatje De Dreu, or Gerardus Van Ysseldyke.

All my research has shown that these families came from Zeeland or Over-Flakkee, South-Holland and apparently all were Oysterman. Their entry to the United States has been listed to be approximately 1887-1890.

Any information that helps me bridge the gap of my ancestors from the Netherlands to the United States would be greatly appreciated.

Re-uniting with any ancestors from the Netherlands would be even more exciting.
