22. Note: FamilySearch Family Tree (and New.FamilySearch) has Lena Bax married to a Klaas Jans Vonk (b. 1824 in Friesland), but there is no source and they don’t have a marriage record. On the face of it, this is very unlikely as Friesland is a great distance from Zuid-Holland. But Klaas and Lena’s marriage record is definitive proof that the Friesland Klaas Vonk is wrong: in the record of their marriage on 19 Sep 1849 in Gorinchem, Zuid-Holland, it states Klaas was age 44 of Oudshoorn and Lena was age 29 from Wijk bij Heusen.
