|PDX Loki||RE: Frederick Veldhuis|
You are very welcome, though I can't say I had any idea of Frederick's history, nor knowledge of his life here. I have yet to notice any other Veldhuis markers in that cemetery, but I have not yet seen every grave, so if I find any more, I will definitely post pictures of them.
Speaking as an American of Scandinavian roots, who speaks of bit of Norsk, I am fascinated by Germanic languages, especially how they relate to surnames. My research says that Veldhuis translates to field house, which is logical. For Bartelink, however, I didn't come up with anything definitive. Maybe a mindset or display of subversive political beliefs? Is that even close to correct?
Regardless, I'm glad I was able to find Frederick's grave. Take care!
