Journal by thepossum1

I am looking for family of Cornelis Bogers b. around 1885 Amsterdam Netherlands. He had a twin sister Cornelia,older brother Bertus, then his dad remarried and there were brothers Martinus(b. 1896) and Willem (Wilhelm). He and the entire family except Bertus emigrated to the US via Quebec, Canada. They lived for a time in Denver, Colorado. Cornelis was a cigar maker, his father, Cornelis, tried to be a farmer. The land wasn't good for farming, so they sold out and moved to Charlotteville,NY ( later renamed Newfane)It was learned later that oil was discovered on the property! Cornelis Sr. committed suicide on the family farm in Newfane. Martinus was 17 at the time and had to make all the arrangements for the funeral. Both Cornelises and Grace are buried in Corwin Cemetary in Newfane,NY.

Cornelis (jr) met & married Grace Edith Newhouse Clay. His children are Cornelis Bruce b.1/14/1926 Niagara Falls, NY and Nelson DOB unk. Niagara Falls,NY. He had stepsons, Karl Clay and Everett Clay.

Nelson V.S. Bogers was my father. I enjoyed reading your journal entry about his family. I have always been curious about his family history. Thanks!
