I'm researching the descents of Jan Van BOVEN & Josina VAN BOVEN born BRAAMSE. They arrived in the USA Between the 31 march 1897 and before the 18th august 1898. They arrived first in Patterson, New-Jersey where their son Johannes VAN BOVEN is born, then they move to Muskegon, MI where Pieter, Gommert, Cornelia were born then they moved to Grand Haven, MI where Adriana is born in 1906 and then they arrived finally to Kalamazoo, MI where Adriaan is born in 1907 and Jacob in 1909. It seems after that Cornelius moved to indianapolis and pieter (peter) to Florida. Cornelia married a Schauer, Elizabeth married a Van Walbeek, Nellie married a Faas, all of them were in kalamazoo. Jacob Van BOVEN was a linotype operator with the Chicago DAily News, he died the 2 april 1957. Jan van BOVEN was the editor and publisher of the "Teekenen Der Tijden " a weekly newspaper in Dutch and he was living at the 648 Elizabeth Street in Kalamazoo, MI he was a member of the second Christian reformed church and he was buried at the riverside cemetery
