My name is Anna Maria van Nifterick Post. I am a new member and I am interested in the family name POST and other family members from Westphalia in general and Emsland in particular.
The oldest documented family member I found is Josef POST, born abt 1762 in Haselünne, married to Anna Elisabeth ADRIANA from Westfalen (?), 29 May 1791 In Schiedam, The Netherlands.
In „Hauserverzeichnis der Stadt Haselünne“, I found out that one of the inhabitants was a man named Johann POST who was born abt 1691. He was probably the father of Joseph POST, born abt 1730. This Joseph had three sons: Josephus (*abt 1762), Joannes Gerhardus (abt 1765) and Carl ( abt 1777). He probably had another son, Nicolaus and a daughter, Anna Maria Elisabeth. I assume that Josephus is the same person as the first Josef Post, my ancestor.
Could anyone confirm this assumption? Thank you very much in advance.
Mit herzlichen Grüßen,
