If you are looking for ancestors fron the isle of Goeree-Overflakkee, province of Zuid-Holland, maybe I can help, provided your ancestors lived there before 1800

Province of Zuid-Holland, Netherlands
Both Dirk and Angeniety BROEKMAN emmigrated to Drenth, Michigan, USA from Ouddorp, Zuid Holland, Netherland. They are both buried in Drenth, Ottawa County, Michigan. Angeniety's birthdate is 20 Mar. 1795. I believe her parents were Willem VAN REGENMORTER and Arentje VAN OOSTVOORN.

Please try to write proper english, with punctuation.
On are 17 hits on Pieter van Regenmortel in the period 1815-1872. Most hits are birthes. There are at least 4 persons with this name as they are married to different women. Did your ancestor marry before emigration or did he go single?

If you read the story you see it talks about Peter Van Regenmorter's father Jacob who was killed when struck by a train. Looks like this is your family.

Also found this online:

JAKOB (JACOB) VAN REGENMORTER, born. 1843, Ouddorp, Zuid-Holland, Nederland; died Before 1894, Holland, Ottawa County, Michigan; married JANTJEN (JANE) DOREN; born 20 August 1860, Assen, Drenthe, Nederland; died 03 January 1948.
Jacob Van Regenmorter was a factory worker who died at work. He was distracted by a switch engine and failed to see a flyer coming down the second set of tracks. He was killed instantly. He left a widow and five children with no benefits or government assistance.
[Source: Richard Van Regenmorter, grandson of Jacob Van Regenmorter]
Baptism: Hollandsche Gereformeerde Church, Vriesland, Ottawa County, Michigan
Immigration: 1847, Ship name: Hugo Grotenhuis
Jantje (Jane) Doren's first husband, Jacob, was killed at work. At the time of his death, there were no death benefit programs for the family and so Jane could not support the family herself. She removed all children from school and helped them find work. Her son, Peter, left school in the fourth grade and helped support the family by milking and herding cows.
Even though the family was virtually penniless, Jane was too proud to allow her children accept charity. For example, she refused to allow them to partake in soup kitchens set up for laid-off factory workers.
Jane immediately married Pieter Elhart, possibly more for financial support than love. He brought three children to the marriage and they produced 2 additional children, raising 10 children in their small home.
After Pieter died, Jane lived with her daughter, Mary, in the late 19teens or possibly 1920.
