Dam, Jannigje van
Worked at PZH from earliest Sept 1909 until Oct 1912

Jannigje den Hoed was born in 1833 in Bergambacht and married in 18?? with Cornelis van Dam. He passed away in 1902 and in September 1909 Jannigje van Dam (she would have kept her married name) moved from Gouderak to Gouda, age 76. She moved in with the Verburg family, who had moved 3 years earlier from Gouderak to Gouda. Two daughters in this family, Geertruida (born 1894) and Adriana (born 1897) are registered as "plateelschilderes". This is also the registered profession of Jannigje when she died age 79 in October 1912. It is unclear if Jannigje had any previous experience as a painter, but the quality of JvD signed pieces is very good. She is mentioned in Tasman as ‘Jannigje den Hoed, decorator, PZH, c.1910’, but as a widow she would have kept her married name van Dam.
