Children of Johannes van Gorkom and Anna Maria Dirkse (generation IX-j98)
Johannes was son of Jan van Gorkom and Maria van der Linden (VIII-j72) and grandson of Johannes van Gorkom and Antonetta Schreur (VII-j50).
Johannes was born in Utrecht on 8 May 1823. It means that he was already 3 and a half years old when his parents married on 15 November 1826. There is little doubt, however, that Johannes was the natural father of this child. He personally notified the authorities of the birth and declared being the father. Son Johannes married Alida Bakker (Aaltje) in Utrecht on 25 December 1850. Apparently it was possible to marry on Christmas Day. Alida was born in Utrecht on 25 June 1826 as daughter of Dirk Bakker, carpenter, and Maria Walman. Al least eight children were born, who are mentioned on the page about generation XI. Johannes was a button maker. He did not have to serve in the army, because he was too short. He died in Utrecht, 69 years old, on 29 September 1892. Alida was 79 years old when she died on 8 November 1905, also in Utrecht.
On 23 April 1827 a boy called Fredrik was born. He died on 27 August 1827, 5 months old.
X-j28. Johannes Casper
Johannes Casper, probably named after his uncle, was born in Utrecht on 14 June 1828. He was married twice. The first time in Utrecht on 9 July 1851 to Jansje de Ridder, daughter of Jacobus de Ridder and Wilhelmina Elisabeth Hooberg. Jansje was born in Utrecht on 30 March 1829. Two children were born. Jansje died on 10 July 1861, only 32 years old. The second wife of Johannes Casper was Frederika Bieleveld, born in Zwolle on 26 February 1837 and daughter of Hendrikus Jacobus Bieleveld and Francina Pocka. They married in Utrecht on 20 November 1861, and had one child. This child was named Frederika, so after her mother, and was born on 3 April 1863. It died after three months on on 17 July. All three children of Johannes Casper are mentioned on the page about generation XI.
Johannes Casper was not drafted into military service for the reason of being too short. Like his older brother and his father, Johannes Casper was a button maker, but he was also a housepainter (in 1852). Apparently the family moved to Arnhem somewhere between 1863 and 1880. Johannes Casper died in Arnhem on 26 February 1884 at the age of 56, and Frederika married for a second time, in Arnhem on 30 April 1890 Sijmen Nicolaas Koot, widower of Johanna Frederika Wittenkamp. He was born in Nieuwer Amstel on 10 February 1829 and son of Sijmen Koot and Claasje de Jong. Sijmen Jr. was the hand of a fish salesman and labourer during his life.
A second boy named Fredrik was born in Utrecht on 29 October 1831. He was clearly named after his grandfather Fredrik Dirkse. Fredrik married in Utrecht on 16 April 1856 Geertruida Hendrica van den Bol, born in Utrecht on 11 July 1832. She was daughter of Jan Willem van den Bol and Hendrica van den Heuvel. When Fredrik and Geertruida Hendrica married, they recognized their daughter, who was born four months before. In total, 13 children were born in almost 20 years. In the end four survived and married. All of them are listed on the page about generation XI. Fredrik was a basket maker for his profession. Like his two brothers he was too short for the army.
The last child of Fredrik and Geertruida Hendrica was not born alive. Apparently a fatal complication occurred, as mother Geertruida Hendrika died in Utrecht three days after the delivery, on 31 August 1875, 43 years old. The eldest child was nineteen years old, but three young children, aged three, two and one, stayed behind without a mother. On 14 March 1877 Fredrik married in Utrecht 52 years old Johanna van der Tier. She was born in Utrecht on 22 September 1825, widow of Christiaan van Rossum and daughter of Jan van der Tier and Aaltje Pastoor. Fredrik died in Utrecht on 25 May 1897, 65 years old. Johanna passed away two months later on 25 July 1897 at the age of 73.
Maria was born in Utrecht on 12 July 1834. She married Willem Fredrik Linschoten, son of Willem Fredrik Linschoten and Sara Hendrika de Haas, in Utrecht on 27 May 1863. Both his parents had already deceased then. Willem Fredrik was born in Utrecht on 1 April 1839. Five children were born. The youngest one, Willem Fredrik Linschoten, married his second cousin Wilhelmina Gijsberta Goenee, daughter of Pieter Goenee and Johanna Grimmelikhuijzen. Pieter Goene(e) was son of Arie Goene and Antonetta Maria Willemina van Gorkom (generation IX-a01). Willem Fredrik died in Utrecht on 17 March 1889, 49 years old. For his profession he had been a painter. Maria died in Utrecht on 14 May 1905, 70 years old.

Antonetta was born on 20 April 1838. She was 11 years old when she died in Utrecht on 28 August 1849.
A second Anthonia van Gorkom was born in Utrecht on 12 July 1842, therefore sharing her birthday with her sister Maria. She married Evert van Zomeren, son of Hendrikus van Zomeren and Gerritje van Harten, in Utrecht on 14 June 1871. Evert was born in Barneveld on 6 May 1847. Before his marriage he had lived in the town of Leiden. The couple had about nine children. Evert died on 28 August 1915, 68 years old, while Anthonia died on 24 December 1928, 86 years old, both in Utrecht. For his profession Evert had been a plasterer.
On 15 February 1845 Anna Maria gave birth to a stillborn child.
