Artistic Family

Ben van Lierop and Hannie Hamel

Johan Bernard Hendrik van Lierop and Johanna Catharina Hamel

My grandparents, Ben van Lierop and Johanna Hamel, an engaged couple in 1912, from a Hamel family group portrait.

The group portrait from which this is detail is taken shows the offspring of Johan wilhelm Peter Hamel (1856-1942) and his wife b. Sara Maria Elisabeth Herman (1858-1929), who led the migration of their entire family to the United States just before World War I.
