    Information about Jacobus Gerardus Duppen, 1852 from the Netherlands

    Esther Van Rossem Newbie

      Who has information about Jacobus Gerardus Duppen. He and his family emigrated in 1852 from the Netherlands to the USA. His father‘s name is Jacobus Duppen, who was married with Gertruida Bongers. Jacobus Gerardus was born in 1844 in Nijmegen.

      In 1865 he returned to the Netherlands to marry Konstantia Schoenmakers.  On their marriage certificate it says that Jacobus Gerardus lived in Brooklyn, New York and both his parents were deceased.

      After the marriage they apparently return to the USA, but From then I loose track of them. I only know that Konstantia Schoenmakers returned to the Netherlands again, where she died in 1902. On her death certificste it says that she was a widow twice: her first husband Jacobus Gerardus died, as did her second husband Thomas Scott.

      I Hope someone can tell me more, so I can fill in the gaps of my family tree and -history.

      Thanks!
