My ancestor was Klaas Harms Bouman, who was teacher at the schools of Wagenborgen and Holwierde. In 1802 he moved to Stapelmoor in Germany, a small place near the dutch boarder, where he died in 1850. His father's name was Harm Hinrichs.
My ancestor appears as Bouman and Bouwman.
Could there be a connection?? I miss the children of Klaas Harms Bouman born after 1802.
