Martje Cornelis Burger
Years ago we received a family tree from a presumably distant relative. This tree was very interesting since this branch of Verberne’s appeared to have no visible link with our Texel branch. Until we found Martje Cornelis Burger, our common denominator.
In our branch she got married on 24 Jul 1764 • Texel to: Jan Pietersz Verberne (1739–1814)
And in the other branch in 1764 to: Jan Pieters Verberne (1751–1826).
Obviously it has to be the same husband, especially since both fathers had one mutual son: Simon Jansz Verberne (Birth 7 Sep 1775 • Texel – Death 22 Jul 1837 • Den Burg (Texel)).
Official records confirm Jan Pietersz Verberne birth and death (1739–1814). Nevertheless we’re interested to get confirmation of Jan Pieters Verberne (1751–1826). Sofar we haven’t been able to get this.
The other thing we’re puzzled by is the fact that Martje Cornelis Burger’s husband Jan Pieters Verberne appears to have different parents. Again, this can’t be correct.
So if you happen to have the solution to our problem, we would like to get in touch with you.
