Hendrik Kooijman was born in Versailles in 1816

For some unknown reason Dutchman Hendrik Kooijman was born on 27 August 1816 in Versailles in France. His parents are workman Johannes (“Jan”) Kooijman and Johanna Jansen. The couple had an earlier son, Henricus Anthonius Kooijman, baptized on 29 March 1808 in Utrecht with Roman Catholic rites. Jan, however, had been baptized on 12 January 1775 in Vianen in a Dutch-Reformed church as a younger son of an elder Jan Kooijman and his wife Hendrikje Vreeswijk (±1733-1821) who had been married in Utrecht on 6 November 1757. Hendrikje's parents are Lambertus (“Lammert”) Vreeswijk and Antonia (“Teuntie”) Vermeulen.
