Here’s another ancestor. Could this be great grandmother Kool-Vanderdonck-Van der Pyle? Or even her mother? The photo was taken in Amsterdam, and like all these things, undated. The dress is rich with beading, leg-o-mutton sleeves, and looks like good black silk. Some elaborate jewelry — a watch fob? — dangles.
I suppose this could even be grandfather Jansen’s mother. But all my guesses are just that — guesses.
Let me know if you have any clues.
