John Klaassen- Holland
Posted by: Vicki Date: December 18, 1999 at 22:45:14
  of 10

John Klaassen married to Grace Goeman. They had my Uncle, George Klaassen b August 29, 1895 in Holland who came to America with his parents at the age of nine months. (He used to tell us he remembered the trip well!) Uncle George passed away December 24, 1994, at Mason City, IA before I was able to get the information from him I needed to complete this branch of the tree. He married my paternal Great-Aunt Edna Mae Juel at Nashua, IA on July 12, 1927. They had no children.
I am seeking his family info in Holland as well as anything I can locate here in the states. He spent most of his life in Iowa and at one time was a Golden Gloves champion in boxing...going by the name of Bobcat Klaassen. I would love to find anything but am especially interested in his boxing career. Please contact me at kkarousel@yahoo.com should you have any information that may help. Thanks and Happy Hunting~ Vicki
