Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy learning new things about my family history. I'm a part time volunteer at the Poweshiek County Historical Socitey in Montezuma. I try to get out & take pictures of my families graves to put in with my family history. I also enjoy connecting people together. I have learn a lot since I have started working with this site. I would like to thank everyone for helping with Find A Grave because I have been able to find some of my family that is out of state.
These are some of my families that I'm researching on my dad's side. Ver Steegt, Ver Dught, DeJong, Sterrenburg, DeKraai, Duinink, Dunnick, & Vander Leest.
Mom's side Busby, Leatherman, McDonough & Fowler.

RE: Gysbert & Neeltje De Jong Van Houwelinge
So am I related. There are several Gysberts & at least 2 Gysbert & Neeltje "Nellie" couples.
My great-grandparents were Gysbert 1835-1894 & Neeltje "Nellie" De Jong 1837-1896. They married 1862 & lived on a farm northwest of Pella & when they died (young) their children, 7 daughters & 2 sons were still at home, the youngest girl 12. Gysbert was the son of Gysbert 1813-1876 & Marrigje (Kappetijn) Van Houwelingen 1813-1892.
There was also Gysbert A. 1848-1920 & Neeltje "Nellie" De Jong 1853-1910 married 1874. They had 2 adopted children, one of them Andrew W. Van Houweling married Maggie Vande Lune. This Gysbert was son of Aart 1799-1893 & Dirkje (Sterk) Van Houwelingen.

Gijsbert 1813 & Aart 1799 were brothers.
I haven't looked for how the 2 Nellie's are related, but I may have it my De Jong papers.
As you probably know the name was originally Van Houwelingen, some later dropped the "n" & some dropped the "en" at different times.
If this raises more questions, please ask.

Thank you
Thank you so much for taking the picture of my great grandpa and great grandma's grave. It means a lot to me to see their graves since I wasn't able to go to my great grandma's funeral and I've never seen their graves.
