Married for 4 days: Adriana Petronella Koomans

On July 26, 1866, in Abcoude-Baambrugge in Holland, Adriana Petronella Koomans was married to Cornelis Wouter Hoogendijk. Adriana Petronella was born on November 24, 1842, in the township of Fijnaart and Heijningen in Brabant, The Netherlands. Her parents were dr. Willem Koomans (1818-1917) and his first wife, Aagje Fontijn. Cornelis Wouter Hoogendijk was born on October 22, 1840, around 22:00 in Zwammerdam in Holland. His parents were Adrianus Hoogendijk and Neeltje Anna van Rossen.

Adriana Petronella's second marriage was peculiar, too, for she was married by proxy on February 10, 1876, in Abcoude-Baambrugge to Abraham van Soest who had been born - and was still living - in Indonesia. In March she traveled with steamship "Conrad" to her new husband in Indonesia.
Abraham van Soest died on August 6, 1887, while he was on board steamship "Voorwaarts". His widow returned to The Netherlands where she died in The Hague on March 16, 1927.
