The Nagel family from Eede, Zeeland, the Netherlands

Eede is in Zeeland just north of the Belgian-Dutch border, north of Maldegem, south of Aardenburg and east of Middelburg.  In the Middle Ages Middelburg was a fortified city.  Since 1977 it's part of Maldegem.

On the website of Mr. Ad van de Wouw we found that Andreas Bernardus Cornelius Nagel was born in 's Hertogenbosch on 3-4-1826, the son of Johannes Jacobus Nagel and Jacoba Adriaanse.  According to this same source he got married in Moergestel on 15-1-1852 to Amelia Maria Josephina van Heijnsbergen.  She was born in Petange, Luxemburg on 5-1-1825, the daughter of Hubertus van Heijnsbergen and Cornelia Vriens.  She died in Moergestel on 19 January 1911.
Here follow details of three children of Andreas and Amelia:

The Zeeuwen Gezocht website (Zeelanders Wanted) has 3 entries on:
Andreas Bernardus Nagel and his partner Amelia Maria Josephina van Heijnsbergen (shopkeeper) but they have no record of their wedding, no doubt because Moergestel is definitely not in Zeeland.

According to the Zeeuwen Gezocht website Andreas and Amelie had two sons (that Ad van de Wouw doesn't know about):

1. Franciscus Cornelis Nagel
x Eede 10-7-1900 Ghislena Maria Hortensia van Vooren.
Ghislena was born on 20-11-1875 in Eede, the daughter van Eduardus van Vooren (Eede 2/2/1830 - Eede 1/11/1917) (broodbakker) and Melania van Belleghem (Middelburg, East-Flanders 20/2/1837 - Eede 26/8/1923).
According to details of their wedding certificate on the Zeeuwen Gezocht website Franciscus was born in Appeltern and he was 35 years old when he married.  That means he was born about 1840.
Franciscus was a carpenter.  His wife died on 13 May 1961 in Maldegem.

The daughter of Franciscus and Ghislena:

2. Christianus Constantius Nagel
x Eede 20-1-1882 Melania van Rie
According to the wedding certificate Christianus was 25 years old when he got married and he was born in Best, a place near Tilburg and  's Hertogenbosch.  He was school head.
