Ruth Bo(o)gaart was born ca 1763 in Weesp[13].  A baptism for him has not been found bit in the baptism records of the Netherlands Reformed Church, there is a baptism for Rut Boog on 3 June 1764.  Parents were Cornelis Boog and Aaltje Eggers.  Could this be the right person?  Could he, or his father, changed the surname to Boogaart at some point?

In 1849, Kaatje was living in a house at Wollenweversbuurt 4 in Weesp.  She is noted as a Widow.  Living there also was her son,  Harmen and his wife Marretje Hoogeveen and 4 of their children[4].
