I am looking for any descendants of Derk Nakken and Wilhelmina Fels. They were from Netherlands and lived I believe at Gendringen. I know of three of their daughters that immigrated to the US. I have old photos of I think of Frederike Nakken and husband Johann Heinrick Knorth and family. I would love to share information and pictures.
Derk's family consisted of Wilhelmina (Bosman), Frederika (Knorth), Mechteld Helena (Harmelink), Johanna Dirkje (Telinda), Dirk, Jan Willem, Aleijda (Housman), Hendrika Vandrina, and Elizabeth (Housman).
Dirk's parents were Beren Hendrik Nakken and Mechteld Imminks. Wilhelmina Aleijda Fels parents were Herman Heinrick Fels and Johanna Dornink.
Thank you
