TANEE BRUIN, in response to your request here is what I have, plus more....
ALBERT MAXIMILIAAN (MOKKI) ARENDS -- Mokki Arends was born in the early 1950's and I believe in Aruba or Maracaibo, Venezuela. He lived in Venezuela with his parents and sisters and brother while we were growing up. I believe he now lives in Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles. Try researching Venezuela, Aruba and Bonaire for this name.
RUDOLFO MINGUEL ARENDS -- I will do some more research as I am familiar with several Rudolfo Arends'. There was a Betsy Arends, who married a BRUIN but I do not have their particulars. Betsy had a brother named Rudolfo who married my Father's sister CLARA MARIA ARENDS born October 2, 1932.Rudolfo died last month, May 2005. Betsy and Rudolfo's Father may be Rudolfo Minguel Arends, son of Maximilliano Francisco Arends and brother to Jacobo Eloy Maximiliaan Arends. I will confirm this for you as well.

NOTES of INTEREST:
JACOBO ELOY MAXIMILIAAN ARENDS studied Medicine in DEN HAAG, Netherlands and returned to Aruba to practice in 1920. He got engage to MARIA MONICA LACLE in 1923, when he started to build their home on Wilhelmina Straat 8 in Oranjestad. Their three children, Clara, Adriaan and Eloy were born in the house, which today is City Hall. People who go to Aruba to get married will be married by a civil cervant at this home.
Jacobo Eloy and Maria Monica did not get married until 1925 since the house took three years to build. This home is now an historic landmark. JACOBO ELOY was also the first ARUBAN MD to practice on the island.
Two Daughters of ADRIAAN LACLE and LEONSA ODUBER, [Maria Monica and Maria Veneranda], married two sons of MAXIMILIANNO FRANCISCO ARENDS and CLARA ANOECSACION RUIZ, [Jacobo Eloy, and Maximilian, respectively]. These families built similar homes across the street from one another on Wilhelmina Straat in Oranjestad. Their children are considered double first cousins since they share all the same grandparents.
ADRIAAN LACLE BLVD is named after my great grand father. ADRIAAN was a very successful business man.
My Dad is JESUS ELOY MARIA ARENDS, son of Jacobo Eloy Maximiliaan Arends and Clara Maria Lacle. Born May 26, 1926.
