  1. Cornelius REIJST (REYST) [I2631]


After arriving in Detroit - either to blend in more or because the i and j were misinterpreted for y - they just adopted the "Reyst" as their surname.

Cornelius Reyst's parents were Johannes Cornelis Reijst (b. 23 Feb 1862 in Zevenbergen, Noord-Brabant, NL; d. 7 Jan 1922 Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan, USA) and Helena Elisabeth Antoinetta de Reus.
