When I was growing up, my parents often said that if I met any other
Outmans, they would surely be related to me because Outman is not a
common last name. That belief was probably handed down in
the family and may have been related to our ancestors changing their
family name to Outman.
Well, its turns out that they were not entirely correct!
Most Outmans in the United States are descended from Jacob Jeremiah and Mary (Poole) Outman, but not all. There are at least 2 Outman lines that are not related to Jacob Jeremiah and Mary. This page is intended to document some of these Outmans.
Thomas R. Outman, Jr. and his wife Martha had 1 daughter and 2 sons and so there are now several Outmans descended from this line. Some of these Outmans are now located in Maryland and Michigan.

In November 1951, Jan and Lina's youngest son Johannes and his wife Suzanna had a child, John, born in Medan, on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The next month they immigrated to Western Australia. In 1953-1955 Jan Willem Outman, Jr. and his wife Joanna Derksen had 2 children who were also born in Medan. In 1958, the Outmans decided it was time to leave Indonesia. Jan Sr. and wife Lina immigrated to Western Australia where their other son was living while Jan Jr., wife Joanna, and child immigrated to California.
In August 1967, Jan's mother, Lina Outman, who by that time was living in the Netherlands came to Los Altos, CA (south of San Francisco) to visit her son Jan and his family. In May 1968, while still in Los Altos, CA, Lina A. Outman died. Her husband, Jan Willem Outman, Sr. had predeceased her.
In November 1976, Jan Willem Outman, Jr. passed away in California. His younger brother Johannes died in 1992. Their descendents continue to live in California and Australia, respectively.
At least 2 children of Jan Willem Outman Jr. and wife Joana (Derksen) Outman still live in California. They are unrelated to the other Outmans who live there.
