GASC containing the names and other known
facts of all descendants of
Jean-Antoine Gasc and Maria
Josephe Catemberg that have lived
in the Netherlands from 1792 onwards.
Jean-Antoine GASC was born in
Verfeil, 30 kilometers east of Toulouse, in
the French department "Haute-Garonne", on
January 19, 1755.
In the late 1780's or early 1790's, i.e.
shortly before the French occupation of the
Netherlands, Jean-Antoine GASC
moved to Amsterdam where he married Maria
Josephe "Josefina" CATEMBERG (or:
KATTENBERG) on July 20, 1794. Jean-Antoine
GASC died of the flue in Amsterdam
on December 18th, 1800, at the age of 45.
On February 19, 1794 a son was born to
Jean-Antoine GASC and Maria Josephe
("Josefina") Catemberg (or: Kattenberg). He
was baptized the same day in the Roman
Catholic "French Chapel" in Amsterdam and
named Thomas Antoine after
his godfather Thomas Antoine AVY.
In later documents Thomas Antoine was using
the surnames GASCH or GASE. From 1822 onwards
only the name GASE was used. Thomas
Antoine GASE died in Amsterdam at
the age of 90 on March 10th, 1884.
All 80 GASES that are living in the
Netherlands, United Kingdom, Switzerland and
Australia today are descendants of
Jean-Antoine and Thomas Antoine GASE.
