Willem Lamp of Haarlem, Holland

I have a Willem Lamp who married my mother-in-law about 1944. Willem was the youngest of 8 children. He was born Dec. 2, 1882 in Haarlem, Holland. His parents lived in Haarlem Holland but I think they were from Germany and did not like the politics of that time period and so moved to Haarlem. The family owned a fine china/gift type business.

Willem came to the United States in 1917 with his wife Josephine and they settled in Clarksville, TN where he was a tobacco exporter for European market. After his wife died at age 31 he remarried a lady named Dorthory. After that marriage ended he married a 3rd time to my mother-in-law, Mary Rives Proctor.

Willem died in Clarksville in Nov. 1978. I wish I knew more about him. I hope someone can fit him into their Lamp family tree. Margaret
