Death certificate of Hendrik van der Hoogt

Death certificate of Hendrik van der Hoogt, my 3rd great-grandfather: On the seventeenth of September of this year [1875], in the afternoon at five o’clock, passed away in this municipality, Hendrik van der Hoogt, spouse of Neeltje Vermey, before widower of Trijntje de Jong, son of Maarten van der Hoogt, name of the mother unknown, laborer, 71, born in Leiderdorp and residing [in Leiderdorp].

One of the people who came to the registrar to register Hendrik’s death was his son (from his first marriage) Klaas, who was 41 years old and worked as a laborer. He signed the death certificate. Interestingly, Klaas did not know the name of Hendrik’s mother, his own paternal grandmother, Aaltje de Bruin (who died in 1826, three years before Klaas was born).
