I just published a post on the Jonker/Vellenga/Ooms connection and am admitting that I am wrong. My information is wrong about the connection to the Ooms family.
I apparently used some incorrect information and did not confirm my sources thoroughly. While John Yonker and his wife Annie did have a daughter Jane, she was not the Jane Yonker married to Harry Vellenga Sr. Jane Yonker was the 6th of 9 surviving children of Nick Yonker, married to Nellie VanHeest. I believe Nick is Jan and Teetje Jonker’s son.
So now what to do with my original post? That’s an interesting conundrum. I’m going to remove the section that refers to that part and keep the rest.
I want to thank one of my readers, Tricia, who helped me with this. Tricia is a great granddaughter of Harry and Jane.
Thank you Tricia!
Thanks for reading!
