Wijngaard family grave, Catholic Cemetery, Naarden

Wijngaard family grave

A family grave in Naarden Catholic Cemetery. Buried here are Petrus J. Wijngaard, his wife Josephina B.S.M. Dijkman, and Leo.

I could not identify Leo – maybe a son or grandson of Petrus and Josephina. I did find a death certificate for Petrus, combining that with the text on the grave stone I made the following genealogical reconstruction:

Petrus (or Pieter) Jacobus Wijngaard, son of Johannes Wilhelmus Wijngaard and Margaretha Eijpe, born on 4 November 1901, died on 20 January 1957 in Utrecht. He married Josephina Berendina Susanna Maria Dijkman. She was born on 1 August 1897 and died on 29 September 1984.
