Pleun Tuk (1852-1940) &
Goverdina Kwakernaat (1858-1936)
in September 1926 in a
newspaper called "Voorwaarts".
Two areas with the name 'Quakernaak' can be found on old maps. One is an area of farm land to the southeast of Meerkerk that dates back to medieval times, when the polder was protected by dikes and developed. The other was located between the village of Schelluinen and the city of Gorinchem. The Kwakernaat family may have derived its name from either of these areas, but the last one is the most likely.
