Hello -

I found your contact information on the Internet. I'm
researching a relative, Verle Blanche Brethouwer (b.
1915, Detroit, MI, married Warren K. Watson). Verle's
parents were Everett John Brethouwer and Florence
Maxon. Everett John Brethouwer was born on June 21,
1891 in Holland, NE. He had one brother (that I know
of -- John, b. 1899 in Nebraska).

I suspect Everett John Brethouwer was the son of
Martinus Brethouwer and Grace? . I'm wondering if you
might have any additional information about this
family line. I would appreciate any information you
might be able to share.

Many thanks!
