After her husband died in the Netherlands, Hendrikje came across the Atlantic in 1899 with son-in-law John Smit (married to Jiskje), daughter Dieuwke, and some grandchildren, to join Dirk Kaper already living and working just south of Zeeland, MI. She was a quiet, heavy woman.
Hendrikje is buried in an unmarked grave in Zeeland Cemetery (E 1 35).
