Jan Smits, later known as John, was my mother's uncle. His mother was Arisje van Ravenswaaij and his father was Dirk Smits.
Arived: 25 Oct 1904, Ellis Island
Ship: S.S. Statendam
Departed from: Rotterdam 15 Oct 1904
Going to friend George Simons, 506 E 30th Street, Paterson NY or NJ.
There was a rumour that Jan had been to the States before, hence he knew the friend.
Jan died in 1967 in New Jersey.
He was married to Gertrude and named his eldest daughter Arisje after his mother.
I have more family information.
