Johannes, or Jan, Dansser (also Danser) is a bit of a mystery man, as is his wife, Maria Inkelaar. I have no documents on either one of them, although I do have a death index on Maria.

Yvette Hoitink had originally given me this information on the couple:

Johannes Dansser was born about 1772. On 13 Oct 1825 he was a day laborer in Zwolle, Overijssel, the
Netherlands.
Maria Inkelaar lived in Zwolle, Overijssel, the Netherlands on 13 Oct 1825.
Johannes Dansser and Maria Inkelaar had the following child:
Jeuntien Dansser, born 26 Apr 1806, Zwolle, Overijssel, the Netherlands; died bef 4 Nov 1869.

She got these facts from the marriage record of their daughter Jeuntien Dansser to Lukas Bomhof: “Zwolle, Overijssel, the Netherlands, marriage record, 1825, 75, Lucas Bomhof-Jeuntjen Dansser, 13 October 1825; digital images, Familysearch (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-11514-26006-7?cc=1831469&wc=10704172 : accessed 23 December 2012)”

Subsequently, I discovered a death index for Jeuntien (or Johanna) with the death date of 31 January 1842, rather than “bef Nov 1869.”

As with the Bomhofs of this generation, I suspect that they were farm laborers or peasants in Zwolle. Also, this is the other couple who resided in the province of Overijssel, and the records seem more difficult to come by than in Zeeland. Still, I believe their daughter did well for herself to marry Lukas who turned out to be an enterprising man and a musketeer at Waterloo against Napoleon.

This completes half the 4x grandparents who are ancestors of my grandfather, Adrian Zuidweg. The Zuijdweg (den Herder), Mulder (Cornaaij), Bomhof (Janssen), and Dansser (Inkelaar) families were all ancestors of Grandpa’s father, Adrian Zuidweg, Sr.

The occupations of the men were fish inspector, jailor’s hand, day laborer (peasant), and day laborer (peasant).

The men died at ages 60, 67, 60, and unknown. My great-grandfather Adriaan died at 58, his father Johannes at 68, Johannes’ father Adriaan at 46, and Johannes’ father-in-law Lukas at 58. My grandfather lived to be 91.

The 4x women died at ages 58, 81, 73, and unknown. Maria’s age is unknown, but she died in 1837. If she was born around 1772, that would have had made her 65.

Eventually, I hope to be able to fill in some of these gaps about the Dansser/Inkelaar family, as well as the Bomhof/Janssen family. When I do fill in the gaps, I plan to revise the fill-in-the-gaps posts that I am writing.
