Looking for any information on Peter Den Otter (common misspellings Otter den, Van (or) Ven Otter), Peter was born to Dirk (aka Dick or Derk) & Maria (Vink/Verdugt) Den Otter about 1853. 1856 Marion Co., census has him at home with some of his siblings namely; Jarntje Verdugt (step sister), Cornelis Verdugt (step brother), Aart Den Otter, Leentije (Lena) Den Otter, and 3 month old Janniaje Den Otter. Any information on any of the family would be greatly appriciated. Thank you for your time and help, Angie Denotter

I'm looking for information on "Richard Elliot Den Otter" (aka Dirk/Dick); he was born on 6/24/1877 near Pella. He was married to "Ella Van Den Baard" who was born 11/9/1876, the daughter of Cornelius & Maggie (Van Bantum) Van Den Baard. She was the eldest of 7 children. I do not have a place of birth for her or a date of marriage. I have Richard's parents as "Richard & Jennie (Duncan) Den Otter", both born in Holland, but I have no exact area of Holland. I did locate on a ship list for the Cathrina Jackson that left Holland in April of 1847 with immigrants bound for Pella Iowa a listing for "Otter, den, Dirk" along with "Otter, den, Mrs. D" , "Otter, den, Aart", and "Otter, den, Lena".

Richard and Ella had 7 Children before Ella passed away @ the young age of 34. It seems that Richard left shortly after she died and that one of Ella's siblings raised the youngest children. Some of their children are listed as born in "Otley, Iowa."

I'm looking for Richard's parents and if in fact they are the Den Otters listed on the ship, and information on his siblings (if any). Also a marriage date for Ella & Richard. Any info you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

In Response To: Dirk Den Otter (Angie Denotter)

Dear Angie,
I saw you asking about Dirk den Otter and his wife. My husband does research on emigrants who left the Alblasserwaard (that is the region we live in) in Holland to the USA in the period 1835 - 1920. He told me your ancestors came from Hoogblokland. That is a little village near Gorinchem, province of South-Holland, Netherlands. I will see if I can find some more information and contact you later on your e-mail. Hope this helps. Greetings from Holland, Anneke Bode.
