Research Notes

Found a 21.6 CM auDNA match on MyHeritage between Frank Granstrom and Lucie Huijs going back to a MCRA of Johannes Thomassen Cremers (1742-1814).

This allows a reasonable assumption that the birth record for Piet Kremers, born 1 Sept., 1867 in Gassel, Noord-Brabant, Nederland to parents Peter Kremers and Johanna Kerkhof[2] is for the same person, Peter Kremers, who immigrated to the United States in the 1880s or 1890s and lived in Wisconsin and Oregon and whose grave is located in the Mount Calvary Cemetery, Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon, USA.[3]

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Peter by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Peter:

Hi Erik,

Best fit for birth that I could find, 1 Sep 1867 exactly 1 year off compared to death certificate. But then multiple censuses had his year of birth as 1867. Also no marriage or death found in Dutch records, very unusual if he had stayed in the Netherlands.
