I am researching my family tree and Admiral Johan Evertsen is a direct ancestor. I would like to know more about his son or grandson, Evert Evertsen, who I believe was involved in the battles in the Dutch West Indies. He was killed in Tobago and I believe he captained a ship. Do you have any information about this ancestor? Thanks for your help!
