Joost Pieter Zijderveld in Florida

My maternal grandmother belonged to a Zijderveld family that has featured the Christian name Joost for centuries.
Volkskrant, 21-9-1989
I found a Joost Pieter (“Joost”) Zijderveld who moved to Florida, USA, in the later 1970s. In the Netherlands he had been in business as a trader in oil. After the oil crisis, business plummeted, and Joost decided to emigrate. In Florida he made a fortune in real-estate. In 1980 Joost Willem Zijderveld and his wife Jeannette de Haan were living in Orlando, Florida. In 1985 they were living with their 4 daughters in Longwood, Florida.

Joost Willem Zijderveld was born in November 1935 as a younger son of Joost Zijderveld and his wife Maria van der Ven who had been married on February 9, 1928, in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht in Holland. This Joost was born there on September 19, 1903, and died on September 30, 1985 in Alblasserdam. He was buried there on October 4, 1985. At that time 2 of his daughters were living in South-Africa.

Trouw, 2-10-1985
The parents of Joost Zijderveld (1903-1895) are Willem Cornelis Zijderveld (1878-1968) and his wife Geertje de Snoo (1877-1962). His grandfather is my ancestor Joost Zijderveld (1822-1893).
