De obituary van Isaac Toonder

03 december 2012
Eerder dit jaar konden jullie op mijn blog mijn zoektocht lezen naar Isaac Toonder die met zijn gezin emigreerde naar de VS. (Lees hier deel 1, deel 2, deel 3 en deel 4) In de Kalamazoo Telegraph vond ik zijn obituary (overlijdensbericht) wat mij ook nieuwe informatie gaf over twee van zijn dochters. Erg handig omdat vrouwen in de VS na hun huwelijk vaak alleen worden aangeduid met hun getrouwde naam.



Isaac Toonder

Died, of paralysis, at this late residence 536 West North street, Thursday at 3:15 p.m., Isaac Toonder. He was born in Warfum, province of Groningen, Holland, June 11 1821, and was therefore 77 years of age. In 1854 he came to Kalamazoo where he had resided ever since. For twenty-one years he conducted a grocery at 440 west North Street, but retired seven years ago.

He leaves a wife, three sons, Edgar Toonder of Hastings, Henry Toonder of Manton, and Frank Toonder of this city: also four daughters, Gertrude Toonder, mrs. Arch Sootsman, Nellie B. Toonder and Minnie Westrater, all of this city. The funeral service will be held at the First Reformed church Monday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock. Deceased had been a member of this church ever since coming to Kalamazoo and had served the church as deacon for thirteen years. Interment will be at Riverside. The bearers will be John Newland, John Sinon, A. Vroegindewelj, P. Ossewarde, D. Niessink and C. VanDyke.
