Hi! I have a whole box of photos with people to identify.
Gerrit Jan Scholten and Wife Hendrika Frederiks, with Art in the front. Back row , beginning left, would be Willem, Joe, Richard and Fred. Gerrit and Hendrika both grew up in the Sioux County, Alton area. Gerrit Jan came to the US from Holland in 1870, and moved to Sioux County in the mid 1870's. His father was Willem Karel Scholten, and his mother, Hermanna Scholten.
This picture is Willem Karel Scholten, born 1826 in Zutphen, son of Gerrit Jan and Jennekin Struikman, of Zutphen. This is my great great grandfather. He is buried in the Alton cemetary with Hermanna.
