Classification: Query
The first wife of Arie, Engelina Hendrika Kornelia Kroon, died in 1879 in The Netherlands. He married his second wife, Johanna Margaretha Stuffers, in 1884 in Holland, Lancaster Co, Nebraska.

This is what I found on him and his family, in The Netherlands:

Arie van Greuningen
Born Alkemade 02 Dec 1844 at 07:00 hrs
Son of Joannes van Greuningen (farmer) and Adriana Johanna Vellekoop
Married Haarlemmermeer 03 Sep 1869 to:
Engelina Hendrika Kornelia Kroon
Born Woubrugge 08 Apr 1849 at 08:30
Died Haarlemmermeer 11 Oct 1879 at 22:00 hrs
Daughter of Kornelis Kroon and Lijntje Kroon


1. Joannes Cornelis van Greuningen (male)
Born Haarlemmermeer 13 Nov 1869

2. Cornelis Joannes van Greuningen (male)
Haarlemmermeer 14 Feb 1871

3. Adriana Johanna van Greuningen (female)
Kralingen 14 Aug 1872

4. Barend Jacobus van Greuningen (male)
Rotterdam 21 Jan 1875

5. Lijntje van Greuningen (female)
Haarlemmermeer 08 July 1877

The family left for the USA on board the SS Leerdam, dep. Amsterdam, arr. NY 22 Oct 1883.
On the pass. list there is a Jannetje van Greuningen, aged 39, implying she is the second wife of Arie. However, there is no second marriage of Arie to be found in The Netherlands. But Arie did have a sister Jannetje van Greuningen, born Alkemade 08 Nov 1842 (2 years older than Arie). There is no trace of her in The Netherlands, besides her birth. So my guess is that she accompanied the family.

Arie remarried in Holland, Lancaster Co, Nebraska on 22 Mar 1884 to:
Johanna Margaretha Stuffers.

I have not been able to trace Johanna Margaretha Stuffers in The Netherlands. BMD data in The Netherlands is scattered over a lot of different databases. If you can find the names of her parents I can probably find her. They may be mentioned in the marriage certificate.

Below you will find links to various scans. Obviously they are all in Dutch..... There is nothing out of the ordinary about these registrations, but it might be nice to see their signatures etc.
