Henricus (Hendrikus) van der WIJST (1789-1853+)


CHRISTENED: July 18 1789 in Uden
PARENTS: Franciscus Henrici van der WIJST (1753-1794) and Aldegonda Francisci van LIESHOUT (1755-1818)
SPOUSE: Deliana van der VOORT (1794-1844), married March 11 1823 in Uden
CHILDREN: Franciscus (1823-1830+), Arnoldus (1824-1898), Albertus (1825-1882),Johannes (1826-1906), Thomas (1828-1830), Thomas (1830-1907), Willem and Fredrik (1832), Maria (1836) and Francina (1837)
DIED: Unknown date
NOTES: He is listed as a workman, a farmer, a shopkeeper and an innkeeper. He also served in the army for five years in the 23rd Infantry Regiment according to his marriage record (1823). His wife's first child was born a month after his parents' marriage. A description (1825) says he had brown hair and blue eyes. The records in Uden have him "signing out" to seek his fortune in North America at the age of 64 with his two children Johannes and Thomas in March 1853. We have uncovered no further record of him on either side of the Atlantic after that date, except that he appears to be deceased by the time of his son Thomas' wedding in 1869.
RESEARCH CAVEAT: We are certain that Hendrikus van der WIJST (1789-1853+) is the father of Thomas van der WIJST (1830-1907) because Thomas returned across the Atlantic in 1868 to marry in theUden records, and the same wife appears in American records after that date. The theory that Arnold van der WYST (d.1898), Albert VANDERWYST (d.1882) and John VANDERWYST (d.1906) of Cuyahoga Co. (Cleveland) Ohio are the same people as Arnoldus (b.1824), Albertus (b.1825) and Johannes (b.1826) is only an educated guess based on the following facts: (1) There is no record of Arnoldus or Albertus dying or marrying in Uden, suggesting they also left (possibly for America) (2) The three brothers in question and Thomas appear to be the only Vanderwysts to settle in Cuyahoga Co. Ohio, all of them appearing there in the 1860s and remaining until their deaths. This is behaviour befitting four brothers in a new country. (3) Arnold, John and Thomas all swore in a Cuyahoga county court on the same day (May 29 1862) their intent to become citizens of the United States, and Arnold was the witness on Thomas' Naturalization certificate a year later (Oct 12 1863). (4) John and Albert were both coopers (barrel makers) in Cleveland, and Thomas, although listed as a laborer, lived just down the street from one of the largest cooperages in the city. (5) Albert, John and Thomas all lived within a very short distance of each other on the Near West Side (Cleveland), with Albert and Thomas both being buried in the the Roman Catholic cemetery in that area (St. Mary's). (6) John's stated age in his Will corresponds exactly to that of Johannes (b.1826), Arnold's tombstone has him born the same year as Arnoldus (b.1824), and Albert's birth, although it varies in different documents, must fall sometime between 1825-27. (7) Albert's children are named after Albertus' parents in the Dutch tradition (Bernard Henry and Harriet, after Henricus, Ida Adelia after Delianna).

Arnold van der WYST (1824-1898)


BORN: July 14 1824 in Uden
PARENTS: Henricus van der WIJST (1789-1853+) and Deliana van der VOORT (1794-1844)
SPOUSES: Mary CEVERS (b. about 1832 according to 1870 census), married July 17 1854 at Cleveland, Ohio
CHILDREN: Henry (1861-1886) (adjacent gravestone),
DIED: 1898 in Rocky River, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio (Tombstone inscription)
NOTES: Probably born as Arnoldus van der Wijst and claimed to have emigrated from Holland in May 1853. An Arnold Vanderwest married Mary Cevers on July 17 1854 (Cuyahoga Probate Marriage Records). Arnold was also at the Cuyahoga Co. courthouse on May 29 1862 to swear his intent to become a citizen of the United States. A year later (Oct 12 1863) he appeared as a witness for Thomas VANDERWYST (1830-1907) when he was naturalized (granted citizenship). An Arnold WIST (aged 46) appears in the 1870 census living in Rockport Twp., Cuyahoga Co. Ohio, working as a farmer with his brother John (1826-1906). Arnold is listed as owning $1990 in real estate at about $300 in chattels. At this time his brother Thomas was living next door. He is still living there according to the 1880 census under the name "Andrew Weis" with his wife Mary and son Henry. We have uncovered no further records about Arnold except for his tombstone (1898).

John van der WYST (a.k.a. VANDERWEIST) (1826-1906)


BORN: November 13 1826 in Uden
PARENTS: Henricus van der WIJST (1789-1853+) and Deliana van der VOORT (1794-1844)
SPOUSE: Lena (unknown maiden name)

DIED: Of Senility (death record) on August 5 1906 in Cleveland, buried in Rockport
NOTES: Probably born as Johannes van der Wijst. John emigrated from Holland to the United States in March 1853 with his father and his brother Thomas VANDERWYST (1830-1907). He appears in a Cuyahoga Co. (Cleveland, Ohio) courtroom on May 29 1862 with his brothers Thomas and Arnold (1824-1898) to swear his intent to become a citizen of the U.S. In 1863 he is listed in a Cleveland Directory as "John West", living at and operating a cooperage (barrel manufactory) at 114 Carroll St., Cleveland. In 1870 John Wist is living at his brother Arnold's farm in Rockport Twp., Cuyahoga Co. It looks like he is still there in 1880 under the name "John Weiss" with his wife Lena and daughter Francis. He appears again operating a cooperage -still at 114 Carroll St. (which suggests he never closed shop despite farming) - in 1881 under the name "John Wist". By 1902 he is retired and living at 51 Grape St., Cleveland, which is the same place he was living when he died in 1906. According to his will his only surviving kin was his daughter Frances (1874-1951), who lived with him in the same home.

Thomas VANDERWYST (1830-1907)


CHRISTENED: May 23 1830 in Uden
PARENTS: Henricus van der WIJST (1789-1853+) and Deliana van der VOORT (1794-1844)
SPOUSE: Johanna SNIJDERS (1845-1929), married July 17 1869 in Uden
CHILDREN: Arnold (1870-1950), Thomas P. (1877-1956), Dorothy (1882-1950), Frank Vanderwyst (1885-1915), Henry (1889-1964+), Ida (????-1964)
DIED: May 6 1907 in Cleveland, Ohio, of bronchitis and old age
NOTES: Born Thomas van der Wijst in Uden, the Netherlands. Thomas emigrated from the Netherlands to the United States in March 1853 with his father and his brother Johannes (1826-1906). He swore in the Cuyahoga County courthouse (Cleveland, Ohio) on May 29 1862 his intent to become a citizen of the U.S. (the same day his brother Johannes/John and Arnold (1824-1898) did likewise), and on October 12 1863 he was naturalized as a citizen of the United States with Arnold acting as his witness. In 1868 he returned to The Netherlands and married Johanna Snijders (1845-1929) and they returned to the U.S. the following year aboard the Pennsylvania, which sailed from Liverpool to New York. The happy couple appear to have settled initially in Rockport Twp., Cuyahoga Co. because they turn up there in the 1870 census living next to Thomas' brother Arnold's farm. At this time Thomas had $100 worth of chattels and worked as a farmer, conceivably for his brother since he owned no real estate of his own. They returned to Cleveland at least by 1891 because Thomas is listed as living at 71 Alum St. in that year's telegraph directory. The family seems to have settle permanently at 15 Alum while Thomas supported the family as a laborer or a teamster, since when Thomas died he was still residing at the same address. He is buried at St. Mary's Cemetery, Cleveland.
