DeGroot Family

I am looking for information on the DeGroot family in the Philadelphia area. Father - Thomas Eager DeGroot, grandfather - Harry Eager DeGroot, great grandfather Henry DeGroot (haven't got info back on him yet to see if Eager name is used there). Am also looking for a connection between the DeGroot and Eager families as my father had said Eager was a family name. Father was an only child, but I know grandfather had siblings. Any help would be appreciated. Cora

Not sure if any help, i don't know siblings names of Nanno DeGroot Sr. , but he was born on 6-23-1888 and married Wilhelmina Meyeraan. They had 8 children. The children were born in Minnesota. They all had many children also, who then had more children, which adds up to many descendants, i have the names of 50 of the descendents on that side. let me know if you think there is a connection.
