geslacht Jansen                  Het geslacht Meeuwenberg          naar alle fotos
         

Alle tot op heden gevonden personen die de naam Meeuwenberg dragen stammen af van het erve Meeuwenberg foto10 gelegen op de grens van de buurtschappen Linde en Riele aan de Spanjaardsdijk in Schalkhaar nabij Deventer. Voor 1800 werd het veelal ook als Meeuwenbelt vermeld.
Deze boerderij foto14 wordt voor het eerst genoemd in 1626 en daaruit blijkt dat de stad Deventer de eigenaar is. In 1683 is de bewoner pauper en wordt er voor 1 vuurstede aangeslagen. In 1749 wordt vermeld dat het is herbouwd. Eeuwenlang is het verpacht geweest door stad Deventer en wel tot 1818 toen het verkocht werd aan Berend Kramer of Kreumelaar voor f 800,-. De boerderij heeft zoals hieronder blijkt daarna vele eigenaren gehad:
Op 09-02-1840 verkoopt bewoner Derk Meeuwenberg aan dagloner Gerrit Grote Bromhaar de boerderij voor f 235,- en Grote Bromhaar verkoopt het in 1848 aan Deventernaar Antony Horst. In 1856 verkocht Antony Horst het erve aan Hendrik Lubbers dagloner te Olst. Het blijkt dat in deze periode de boerderij verpacht is aan drie gezinnen.
In 1851 (achterhuis) en 1864 (voorhuis) foto12 is het volgens gevelstenen blijkbaar verbouwd.
In 1881 verkoopt Evert Jan Lubbers een gedeelte van de boerderij aan dagloner Martinus Jansen en in 1882 kocht Hendrik Teunissen uit Olst (een gedeelte van ?) de katerstede Meeuwenberg voor f 3500,- van de fam. Broekhuizen. In 1890 blijkt de katerstede onderhands te zijn aangekocht door Derk Jan Beltman van eigenaar Anna Lucker, de wed. van Hendrik Lubbers en in 1892 verkoopt Martinus Jansen het erve aan landbouwer Lambertus Borgelink. Vervolgens verkopen in 1898 de erfgenamen van wijlen broer en zus Lambertus en Johanna Borgelink de boerderij voor f 900 aan Lambertus Nijland, landbouwer te Averlo.
In 1922 blijkt de boerderij bijna geheel herbouwd te zijn en in 1970 was het echter een totale bouwval; in 1971 koopt de heer Geurtsen het van de wed. Hunink-Jurriens voor f 30.000,-. Geurtsen herbouwd het dan als woonboerderij. foto09 In 1974 verkoopt hij het weer door aan de heer van Cornewal voor f 240.000,-. foto15 Naast de boerderij foto11 staan enkele zeer oude bomen waaronder een zeer bijzondere beuk. foto13

Hieronder treft u eerst twee kleine genealogieŽn van (nazaten van) oorspronkelijke bewoners van voor 1780 die ook met de naam Meeuwenberg door het leven gingen, maar hieruit stammen geen nog levende personen Meeuwenberg.
In 1788 komt Gerrit Derks Klein Oonk met zijn gezin uit Bathmen als pachter op het erve. Zijn nazaten noemen zich dan Meeuwenberg; al zijn nakomelingen tot op heden gevonden zijn te herleiden als zijnde afkomstig van deze boerderij. In 1871 emigreert bakker/molenaar Hendrik Meeuwenberg (*1823) vanuit Epse met zijn gezin naar Michigan (USA); inmiddels wonen daar meer Meeuwenberg's dan in Nederland. Meerdere namen hiervan zijn in bezit van samensteller dezes, echter kunnen er nog geen aansluitende genealogieŽn gemaakt worden wegens enkele ontbrekende linken.
Aangezien de onderstaande genealogieŽn niet compleet zijn, zijn aanvullingen/correcties etc. zeer welkom. Completions are always welcome !

   2.  Gerdina Christina (Ger) Meeuwenberg, born on 27-08-1904 in Diepenveen, died on 07-08-2006 in Zaltbommel at the age of 101. Zaterdag 28 augustus 2004 - Gerda Stehmann werd gisteren honderd jaar.
Als zestienjarige kwam ze in Bommel aan en ze is nog even kordaat als toen. Zaltbommel 1920: De zestienjarige Gerda Meeuwenberg verhuist met haar ouders en zus vanuit Diepenveen naar het Waalstadje waar pa en ma de herensocieteit De Verdraagzaamheid gaan runnen. Gerda is net overgegaan naar de vierde klas van de HBS. In Zaltbommel meldt ze zich dan ook bij de directeur van de Rijks HBS. Hij vertelt haar echter dat ze in de derde klas moet beginnen. Gerda peinst er niet over. Ik ga naar de vierde klas of ik ga helemaal niet laat ze hem omonwonden weten. En zo kwam het dat ze al op jonge leeftijd meehielp in De Verdraagzaamheid.
Haar zoon Ab Stehmann krijgt nog steeds pretlichtjes in zijn ogen als hij dit vertelt. Ons moeder ging op d'r achterste poten staan. Zo kordaat als ze toen was, is ze gebleven. Deze anekdote typeert haar. Zelf kan ze het voorval niet goed meer voor de geest halen. Ja, er was toen iets aan de hand. Maar wat precies? Het was in ieder geval niet naar mijn zin, zegt ze stellig.
Gisteren vierde Ger Stehmann haar honderdste verjaardag in De Wielewaal in Zaltbommel. Van het personeel en medebewoners kreeg ze onder meer zestig rode rozen. Moeder, je wordt goed in de blommen gezet, merkt haar zoon op. Wethouder Rob Hackert van Zaltbommel voegt er nog een boeket aan toe. En een handkus. U bent nog in volle glorie bij ons en daarvoor krijgt u een handkus van mij. U heeft er al honderd jaar op zitten en bent nog niet van plan te stoppen. U heeft moeilijke tijden gekend, maar heeft uw optimistische levensstijl behouden. Deze levenshouding en uw moederlijke zorg typeren, spreekt hij haar toe. Op de vraag of ze zelf nog iets wil zeggen in de microfoon klinkt er een hartgrondig nee. En daarna een welgemeend dank u wel hoor.
Temidden van haar kinderen Ab en Dineke, kleinkinderen en achterkleinkinderen, zit Ger Stehmann redelijk ontspannen om zich heen te kijken. Natuurlijk is het druk en is ze best zenuwachtig, maar het is de oude dame niet echt aan te zien. Met haar grijze coupe, zalmroze blouse en parelsnoer oogt ze nog lang geen honderd. Ja, ze ziet steeds minder en is slecht ter been, maar ze is nog steeds bij de pinken hoor, verzekert Ab. Zijn moeder luistert inmiddels naar het relaas van een medebewoonster die gevallen is. Och, ben je weer gevallen, mag je nu niet meer lopen met je rollator, vraagt ze belangstellend, terwijl ze liefdevol haar hand op de arm van het slachtoffer legt. Even later schuifelt ze zelf aan de arm van Dineke richting de lift. Niet meer zo rechtop als toen ze in Bommel kwam, haar levenshouding is nog even fier als toen.

A German 88 artillery shell hit the middle of the road right in front of them. If they had not been pulled over by the MP they would have been hit by the shell. Paris was very different from the French. countryside. Chris had a friend that lived in an apartment in Paris and he went to visit him when he had time on leave. He had a very nice time visiting and touring through the city. Germany. They had entered and taken a small town and found an abandoned school house. There was a message on the chalk board that read " Welcome to Germany". They came across a warehouse that held 33,000 bottles of champagne
There were 15,000 men in the division and each received two bottles of champagne. They were all very drunk that night and it would have been a good time for the Germans to attack. They moved very rapidly through Germany, making advances and taking cities. They were working with the 614th Tank Destroyer Company. They completely destroyed most of the towns they took and were ordered not to communicate with any German civilians. Innsbruck. They felt the war was slowing down and many small pockets of German soldiers were surrendering. They entered Innsbruck and there really was not anything for the men to do and they were all very bored. Chris often went swimming and met a young woman named Anna Marie. He liked her a lot and though she was very smart and he was able to communicate with her because she spoke English. Chris had been near a tank that hit a mine and a piece of shrapnel hit him in the head, puncturing his helmet. His leg was also hurt and he was sent to a hospital. Rome. Chris visited Rome on leave and toured the catacombs of Sainte Christopher at Saint Peters Cathedral. It was a very beautiful cathedral with gold walls and ceiling. They were given a tour of Rome by a Russian princess that had fled the country. Leaving France. Chris had enough points to be sent home, but instead they sent him to various units to take inventory of their medical supplies. He began to get very annoyed because he was still working while most units were being sent home. He finally sent in a complaint and was eventually told he could go home. Chris was brought to the shipping area in La Havre. He had been in Europe for 2 years and had learned to speak German pretty well. Back in States. Everything had changed while Chris was in Europe, including himself and it was a lot for him to take in. He got his old job back working for Continental Motors in Muskegon, Michigan. He worked there for about 6 months and then decided that he did not work there anymore. Chris applied for pharmacy school at Ferris State University and went there for 4 years. Looking Back. Chris became a pharmacist and met a woman in church that had moved to Michigan from South Dakota. They got married and had 5 children. Chris still finds it hard to believe he made it through the war because there were so many times that he could have been killed. It was very hard being in Europe during the holidays, especially Christmas. Chris had spent 5 Christmases away from his family.
