Little Paperback inscribed by Bertie (Albertus) DePree, Zeeland, Michigan, 1885

Little paperback - see below for title page - with inscription from owner Bertie DePree, Zeeland, Michigan, 1885.  Bertie also drew two birds and a dog.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

There was an Albertus Johannes DePree, born Feb 26, 1879 at Zeeland, Michigan, the son of Johannes Pieter DePree and his wife Berendtje Broiver DePree.  Johannes was born in the Netherlands in 1843.

Albertus and wife Anna (Veenboer), who married at Zeeland, Michigan, on August 25, 1910, had a son Donald born about 1917.

If you have corrections and/or additions to the information above, or feel that Bertie was a different person, please leave a comment or contact me directly.  Thanks for stopping by!
