Gijsbert van Houwelingen Family

Posted: 1559844596000
Classification: Query
Surnames: van Houwelingen, van den Berg
I'm searching for information on Gijsbert van Houwelingen's family tree - he was born on 3 July 1768 in Kedichem, South Holland, Netherlands and he died on the voyage to America aboard the Maasstroom on 25 April 1847. He was married to Egtje van den Berg, who was born on 20 May 1770 in Nieuwland, South Holland. His son Gijsbert van Houwelingen was born 2 January 1813 in Meerkerk, and he settled with his family in Pella, Iowa, USA in 1847. I've traced his family tree as far back as Gijsbert Herbertse Van Houwelingen (his grandfather) who was born around 1690 in Leerbroek, South Holland. Any information would be appreciated!

I did check back and what you have does seem to check out, also when I compared them to a CD I have of "Families of South Holland". Some more work might be needed to be able to cross reference more to make sure.

Thank you! It seems we have several ancestors in common - I appreciate you taking time to respond to my posts. Where are you on the family tree, if you don't mind my asking?

We are probably not related, I got the information from a CD and online sources so I am not likely on your tree. Hopefully you found some of the information useful, it seems like you got pretty far on some branches.
