Van Poppelen - Australia
WELCOME TO THE VAN POPPELEN MESSAGE BOARD
As far as we know we are descended from the only Van Poppelen family in Australia.
Peter Dominick Van Poppelen was born in Belgium in circa 1843. He married Mary Kelly in 1864 in Adelaide, South Australia. They had 7 children: John, Mary Ann, Thomas, Clementa Theresa, Elizabeth Ann, Katherine and Rosalie. The family lived in three states, South Australia, New South Wales and Western Australia.
We are looking forward to hearing from any descendants in Australia and anyone else researching the Van Poppelen name.
Rick and Judy Carter-Smith.
