Hello Dorothy,

I'm afraid I missed the answer posted by you on July 1. I'll give you some more information on your direct ancestors, and I can give you more if you want. You can also mail me at home:

- Sieds Jehannes Rienks, born 6-10-1770 in Marrum, died 15-11-1845 in Leiden. (dates are in European format). 7-10-1798 he married Grytsje Durks Hellinga, born 17-4-1780 in Ferwerd and died 5-3-1848. This was his first marriage.
- Jehannes Sieds Rienks, born 30-11-1813 in Ferwerd, died 20-1-1900 in Hogeveen. Second marriage: 9-6-1867 to Tryntsje Jacobs de Graaf, born 29-3-1833 in Oldeboorn, died ? in Hogeveen.
- Gustaaf Jehannes Rienks, born 19-5-1874 in Avereest. He was selling dairy machines etc. This is were the info in the book ends.

So, here I would like to have your information of what happened to Gustaaf after 1874. Apparently he went to the USA and founded a family there.
And if it is possible I would like to have a copy or a scan of the newspaper article you mention.

Thanks for your attention,
Kind regards,

Ad Rienks
