Started in on Jenneken Vorkink’s (and Gerrit Jan Groenouwe) children, their spouses, in-laws, and grandchildren. Made the decision (sans a directive I could find otherwise) to name stillborn or otherwise unnamed children as NN Surname.
Jenneken and Gerrit Jan have 4 children listed (so far):
Derk Groenouwe – with Maria Weenk: need to update for grandchildren
- Derk Jan Groenouwe (died at 2-3)
- Derk Jan Groenouwe – with Johanna Polman
- Gerrit Jan Groenouwe (died at 18, unmarried?)
- Tonia Groenouwe – with Gerrit van Dijk
- Johanna Groenouwe – unmarried?
Hendrik Groenouwe no other info yet
Hendrikus Groenouwe – with Harmina Nijkamp
- Gerritdina Groenouwe – with Gerrit Kamphuis
- Johannes Wilhelmus Kamphuis – Wilhelmiina Johanna ter Mul
- Hermina Hendrika Kamphuis – Jan Hendrik Addink*
- Gerritdina Addink – died at age 1
- Hendrikus Kamphuis – died as infant
- Gerritdina Kamphuis – died at age 2
- William Kamphuis – died as infant
- Jantjen Groenouwe – died at 1
- NN Groenouwe – stillborn or died at birth
Hermanus Groenouwe – with Gerritjen Wolters
- Gerrit Jan Groenouwe – Paulina Maria Paulus***
- Gerritjen Groenouwe – with Albertus Elizen
- Hendrikus Hermanus Elizen – with Antje Haitsma

Note: Spouses with names in bold have not been connected with their parents, whereas those whose names are underlined have been.
* Jan Hendrik Addink had a sibling who died on 21 Feb 1893 in Warnveld. Sex not identified, NN Addink. Can’t read enough Dutch to figure out the gender from the archive record. Not yet included in FamilyTree. Spent some time tying together Jan Henkrik Addink’s parents and info about some of his siblings.
Worked on Johanna Polman’s parents (Garrit Jan Polman and Johanna Berendsen) and siblings. Her older sister Lammertjen was married to Peter Gerrit Jan Wunderink. Each of them had another 5 records in FamilySearch that I merged. Merging the records brought in Peter’s parents and siblings et al. Did not yet add Garrit Jan Polman’s parents/siblings or that of his wife Johanna Berendsen.
Johanna had another sister Harmina Polman who married a Jacob Albert de Roos. Did not add Jacob’s parents or siblings at this time.
I haven’t yet found Johanna’s brother Jan’s spouse if any. No record of a marriage and his death certificate at age 46 does not show a spouse.
(Note: My methodology is to search wiewaswie for a certain name–in this case Garrit Jan Polman–and sort them by date and go through them sequentially and add the appropriate data. This is hardly foolproof as it presumes that the subject name will always be spelled correctly, which it isn’t. Double-checking by the other names in the archive record can help bring up records that would otherwise be missed because of misspelling.)
In an interesting turn of events, former inlaws Jacob de Roos and Harmina Polman get married after their respective spouses die.
Garrit Jan Polman marries again after Johanna Berendsen dies, to Alida Baerends. They apparently divorce later and there is an odd marriage record in the archive. Not sure I am going to follow it up at this time.
Worked on Arend Jan Wessels family. Added 4 children (and their spouses and inlaws for some) to FamilySearch, including Gerharda Mina Wessels, wife of Derk Johannes Groenouwe, which is how I got onto this path. Did not look up any of Arend’s grandchildren. (Need to figure out how to get rid of duplicate marriage info on FamilySearch person record where the spouse is Unknown and it is a bogus record resulting from a merge or a find. )Started by searching for Johanna Polman and found some other interesting sources with a Google search.
Worked on the Groenouwe family.
Tracking down a few people.
www.wiewaswie.nl shows a Jan Vorkink and Janna Horstman as parents of Hendrika Vorkink (age 20) who marries Hendrik Jan van Dijk on November 19, 1819. Trying to figure out where this Jan Vorkink fits into our family tree. So far no luck, although there is a Jan Vorkink (born 12 Apr 1744, son of Jan) married to a Janna Horst on 9 Dec 1792. William shows her birth as “about 1750″ in Lochem, which is a problem if she is Hendrika’s mother as she would have given birth at age 49 or so. Unfortunately, wiewaswe.nl’s records are sparse before about 1810 and there isn’t much there to go on. Same holds true from Ancestry.com.
I got started down that road as I was looking to find more information about Jenneke Horstman, wife of Gerrit Vorkink. Noticed that William’s family record sheet lists her birth as “abt 1735″ in Geesteren, but Lorene has it in FamilySearch as about 1740 in Lochem. Sent her an email seeking enlightenment. Can’t find much else about Jenneke at this point, other than her father’s name was Hendrik and no info on her mother.
It must be Horstman day. While looking for associated records I ran across Hermina Horstman, wife of Jan Bolte, daughter-in-law to Johanna Vorkink (daughter of Hendrik Gerrit Vorkink and Everdina Maatstege/Muetstege.) Combined some duplicate records on FamilySearch, which brought up Jan and Hermina’s daughter, Johanna Hermina Bolte.
Unfortunately, the wiewaswie.nl site appears to be down so I’m calling it a day.
Ok, so maybe not done yet. Found a listing of marriages at http://www.genealogiedomein.nl/ which includes the following info:
27.11.1863 JAN BOLTE, 23 j., geb. Lochem, dagloner, zn. van Frederik Willem Bolte en Johanna Vorkink, met HARMINA BERENDINA BOSCH, 26 j., geb. Lochem, dienstbode, dr. van Jacobus Bosch en Berendina H. Brinkman
The above implies that Hermina Horstman would be Jan Bolte’s 2nd (or later) wife.
