Vries, Henri Marie de (1836-1910)
Henri Marie de Vries (1836-1910), whose father was not a Mennonite, but whose mother was a Mennonite, a daughter of Jeronimo de Vries (1808-1880) of Amsterdam, lived from 1871 at The Hague, where he was a director of the Dutch State Bank and a member of the city council. When he came to The Hague there was no Mennonite congregation there. De Vries was the chief promoter in the founding of a congregation in The Hague. For many years he was a trustee and moderator of this new congregation and in 1887-1905 he was a trustee of the Algemeene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit.
