The Thomas Medendorp/Carolyn Coats Home Page

Updated September 25, 2000


My husband, Thomas L. Medendorp, was born in 1944 in Muskegon, Michigan, the son of Henry MEDENDORP and Josephine DEGROOT. Family names include MEDENDORP, WOLTHA, SLAGER, BOUWKAMP, DYKEMA (DIJKEMA), JACOBS, DE JONG (DEYOUNG), BOELENS, BETHLEHEM, BEMMELTS (or REMMELTS), DE GROOT (DEGROOT), and DYKSTRA (DIJKSTRA). All came from Friesland (primarily Opsterland region) or Gronigen (primarily Eenrum region), Netherlands, to Western Michigan between 1872 and 1888.

I was born in 1947 in Saginaw, Michigan, the daughter of Freeman COATS and Virginia BUEKER. Family names include COATS, BURLISON, LEAMAN, McLEAN, LINCOLN, HADDEN, PIERCE, BARTON, BUEKER, MARTI, GERBER. PRATT, PIPPIN, WILCOX, KING, and PADDOCK. There are Swiss, Irish, English, French, French-Canadian, and unknown ancestries. Many lines started in the USA in New York State and moved to Saginaw County, Michigan. Many of these families, whether from New York or Europe, were early Saginaw County, Michigan settlers, particularly in Kochville and Richland Townships.

INFORMATION REGARDING LIVING INDIVIDUALS WAS PROVIDED BY FAMILY MEMBERS OR CORRESPONDENTS AND NOT VERIFIED BY ME. IT MAY BE INACCURATE OR OUTDATED. THIS INFORMATION IS PROVIDED AS A POTENTIAL AIDE IN LINKING LIVING INDIVIDUALS WITH MY WORK. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO EMBARASS OR MISLEAD ANYONE. DUE TO A CORRUPTION WITH MY COMPUTERIZED FILES, I AM CURRENTLY UNABLE TO MAKE CORRECTIONS REGARDING DE JONG (DE YOUNG) FAMILY LINES. OTHER LINES WILL BE CORRECTED IF I AM TOLD OF THE DESIRED CHANGE.
