I am doing family research and find that I have a cousin Catherine Van Loozen Walmsley, born about 1846 in the eastern United States, who was living in Neodesha, Kansas in 1921.

Catherine is the daughter of Cente and Maatje (Hazebroek) Van Loozen who immigrated to the United States from the Netherlands in 1846.
