Great6: Umaat and Mor

Abraham Umaat was born and baptized on October 19th 1710 in Amsterdam, son of Joost Umaat and Margrietje Kok(s) (several spellings, from Kock to Cockx) and he was buried on  November 24th 1748 in Amsterdam. 

His intended marriage with Jannetje Mor was on July 20th 1742 in Amsterdam. Jannetje was mentioned to be born in Meppel, province of Drenthe, but she was married before to Frederik Rijke and there she is mentioned to be born about 1710 in “’t Veen” (I’m not familiar with that place, but it should also be in the province of Drenthe, just like Meppel; it could be Veenhuizen!). 
Her father was mentioned as being Jacob Mor and he was living in Steenwijk, province of Overijssel. I haven’t found anything more on her background. At the wedding of her daughter Margrietje in 1770 she had already passed away. .  Jannetje Mor was buried on March 3rd 1763 in Amsterdam.

I received a very generous letter with the following information from a Dutch person researching their own tree. Jeffrey Lieuwen
