Several years ago, I purchased at auction photos and documents that had belonged to the Blaauw family. Geert and Alexia (Benoit) came to US about 1900. Married about 1905, had a son, Ekke. Lived first in New York, then Michigan. From there to Kansas City Missouri, and eventually settled in San Diege, where they both died; he in 1949, she in 1964. I have dozens of family photos, and several original documents. Looking to hear from decendants of Geert or Alexia if anyone is interested.
