Hello members of this NG.
This is about a Dutch man by the name of CORNELIS ANTONIE ELDERS, he was born in Den Haag The Netherlands January 15 1921 - he arrived in Australia in 1951. We found his gravestone on Mornington cemetery Melbourne Australia, he died Melbourne? Juni 10 2001. Also his (2end?) wife by the name of KLAERE MARTHA was burried there too.From that gravestone we learned Mr. Elders and his wife had a son by the name of PETER ELDERS. We'd like very much to get into contact with this Peter Elders who might be still in the Melbourne area?
As far as we know Mr. Elders came to austalia with his (first?) wife by the name of PETRONELLA J.J. WOLLENDORF. And as far as we know they came over to Australia with one or two childeren obviously born in The Netherlands.
This branch of the Elders family came originally from Germany, born 1762 and setteled in Amsterdam - later Rhenen and further to Den Haag.
CORNELIS ANTONIE ELDERS has at this moment 7 half brothers and sisters living in Den Haag. They'd like to get into contact with their family in Melbourne.
Please help us if you can to establish contact. Thank you very much for your very welcome help.
