Wolterman Genealogy - Week 5
The father of Gerrit Jans Woltermann, who I wrote about last week, was Jan Geert Woltermann. Jan was born 24 October 1761 in Mohlenwarf, Lower Saxony, Germany to Geert Jans and Hindertje (Michels) Woltermann. He was baptized 25 October 1761 in Hannover, Germany. While he undoubtedly had siblings, I have not yet found any records for any brothers or sisters.
On 6 May 1781 Jan Geert Woltermann married Gepke Boelen in Weener, Lower Saxony, Germany. The town of Weener is on the Ems River near the border of the Netherlands. Gepke Boelen was born 20 March 1760 in Tichelwarf, Ostfriesland, Germany. They had the following children: Gerrit Jans born in 1792, Jan born in 1797, and Hindertje born in 1804.
Jan Geert Woltermann died 8 July 1816 in Tichelwarf, Ostfriesland, Germany at the age of 54. It is unclear when his wife Gepke passed away.
