Dutch term or phrase: Weduwnaar, and more
I am researching the Kogenhop family history, and found Klara Elisabeth Kogenhop in a geneology website, as follows: Petronella, geb. 17-10-1862, overl. 3-9-1927, tr.(bs) 14--12-1887 Johannes Dirk Klaasse, geb. 16-6-1856, poetser, overl. 1-7-1922, zn. van Marinus Klaasse en Helena Cornelia de Liefde. Weduwnaar van Klara Elisabeth Kogenhop. Could you please translate this paragraph for me?

agree  Dave Greatrix: but be carefull of the word poetser, it is not a cleaner, but a polisher, much more interesting. See www.volkstelling.
