I cannot find any descendants of Dingeman de Bok, born March 11, 1832 in Emmikhuizen.
He left Holland in 1849 to the USA. He was only 17 years old when he emigrated.
Maybe he had siblings, but that will be a hard research.
BTW, Birth information is 100 years closed for public, marriage information for 75 years and death information for 50 years. This is because of the privacy law here.
So, it will be almost impossible to find (living) descendants.
The area the family lived is about 55 miles by road from Amsterdam.
By public travel (a train and two times a bus) last about 1 hour and 50 minutes.
I do not know if you are interested, but I found the official birth record of Dingeman de Bok, March 11, 1832 in Emmikhoven. It is attached.
His father, Jan de Bok, died on September 28, 1848 in Almkerk.
This is all I can tell you.
