I desperately need some help. I am researching the Bender family tree and getting nowhere fast!! All that I have at this stage is: Johanna Catriena Bender married Frans (Rijkse) Paling on 24 December 1775 in Woerden. Utrecht, Nederlands Hervormd scan 597.
Unfortunately I can't/read understand the scan. Is she from The Hague??? Any help would be SO MUCH appreciated!
[Frans Paling, (previously unmarried) young man from Woerden, and Catriena Johanna Bender, (previously unmarried) young woman from 'Poutspak' in Hessen-Darmstadt, currently both living in The Hague, gave notice of their marriage on the 17th of December 1775. They were given a certificate of attestation to be married in The Hague or elsewhere on the 24th of December 1775.]
Looking for this marriage in The Hague I came across another marriage of possibly her sister (or other relative):
"Den 31 december 1775 Johan Theodorus Scheeffer, j.m. geb. te Essen, gewoond hebbende te Haarlem, en nu te Amsterdam, met Johannetta Christina Bender, j.d. geb. te Boetsbach in het Hessen-Damse, en wonende alhier."
