Jean Kruydt
Royal Majesty Ship Andania, Cunard

KRUYDT, Jean (1881-1946), Santa Cruz Island laborer, born in Teste, France (near Bordeaux), and worked as a farmer. He married at age 27, and had a son and two daughters.

In May 1924, Kruydt immigrated to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and from there went to Yarmouth, MA in 1927. By 1930 he was working on Santa Cruz Island according to the 1930 census. (Although the 1930 census lists him as widowed, he left behind his wife and three children —this according to his grandsonJean-Pierre Kruydt, who contacted the author of ISLAPEDIA in October 2018 from Bordeaux, France, and who provided his photograph.)
