Marriage and Children
Johan married twice.  His first marriage was with Geertruida Johanna Schuckmann on 14 October 1908[3].  Their Intention to Marry were published on 4th and 11th October[4].  Johan worked as a Cigar Sorter and Geertruida had no occupation[3].

Geertruida was born on 14 October 1882 at her parents' house at Leidengracht 148 in Amsterdam.  Her parents were Hermanus Hendricus Schuckmann and Maria Catharina Jansen.  When she was born, Hermanus worked as a Servant/Assistant to a Wine Seller[5].  Some 26 years later, Hermanus worked as a Coffeshop Manager[3].

Johan and Geertruida had only one child, Antonius Johannes Gerardus Post, and Geertruida died just 2 days after his birth on 15 December 1913.  There must have been serious complications with he birth but the child lived[6].

Eleven months after Geertruida's death, Johan met and married Maria Elisabeth van der Kooij on 19 November 1914  in Amsterdam.  Their Intention to Marry was published on 7th November only.  Johan was still working as a Cigar Sorter and Maria (known as Marie) had no occupation.  Johan was 33 years old and Marie was 31[7].
