I have an old bible that has a little bit of history of the Van Gelder family.I would like to get this to a living relative if I can locate one.It has a marriage page on it in which a William Walla?? Van Gelder married a Gertrude Hammerschild (unsure of the spelling). It states they were married in the Asbury Church in Wisconsin on August 19th, 1897. It also gives the name and date of birth of their chidren along with stating that Gertrude came to the US in 1884 from germany.She was born 08=13=1881 and William was born 05/06/1875.If you can show this is part of your ancestory I will send you the bible.
