Maria Vogelpols would never marry Willem Vermeulen

The first banns of marriage for Willem Janse Vermeulen and Maria Vogelpols ware proclaimed on September 9, 1719, in Moerkapelle in Holland: 

"Willem Janse Vermeulen, j.m. van Linden uit graafschap Tekkelenburg
met Maria Vogelpols, j.d. van Tekkelenburg, won. alhier".

Willem was a young man from the county of Tecklenburg in Germany and Maria was a young woman from the city of Tecklenburg in Germany. Alas, they were never married, because Maria fell ill and died:   

"Dewijl de bruid onder de voorstellingen gestorven is,
heeft de voltrekking van 't huwelijck geen voortgang gehad".

A family named Vogelpohl baptised children in Tecklenburg in Germany, so that may have been Maria's real surname.
