Neeltje Cornelia van den Bos, Kirk's great grandmother was born in Sint Philipsland in 1877.  I have traced the van den Bos family to the 1700's in Sint Philipsland.  Other ancestor's surnames include Nelisse, Quist, van Oostende, Verwijs, de Zutter, and de Groene.  These surnames are from Sint Philipsland, Netherlands, too.

It may be of interest to you that as of today the city archive of the community of Tholen, which includes Sint Philipsland, has its own website: It specializes in data going back to before 1811.
I have also taken the liberty of adding the 6 surnames you mention in this post, to my blog
