SOURCES: Margaretha's parents' names were not on her marriage record at Sts Peter and Paul but she was listed on the Holte parish emigration list, no age, as emigrating in 1856. With that she was identified on the passenger list of the ship Ocean where she was listed just after J H KALKMAN whom she wed 4 months later. Her approximate year of birth was known from her age on the passenger list. The Holte parish records were checked and a baptismal entry was found for her there. Her parents' names were taken from that document.
