Not just Van Cootens — 1 Comment

  1. My great grandmother (Anna Van Kooten)’s grandfather was a planter named Van Kooten in British Guiana. Her father was named Johnny Van Kooten and he was the product of a black woman (slave, free woman, who knows) and the Van Kooten planter. His father sent him to India to become a trained pharmacist and once he finished his training he returned to Guiana and opened up his own pharmacy.
