Johannes and Clara's wedding in 1884 involved a three-day reception: the first day with family, the second with other relatives, and the third with friends (view marriage license). By 1913 the family farm consisted of 40 acres.

After he died, Clara lived with son James and his wife Jerine. They sold the farm in 1927 and then lived at 97 East 25th Street, Holland, MI, and often tried to run their lives. She was known as a very bossy person, although warm. She was also quite fat, such that when she entered a room people would say "three chairs" jokingly.

Clara is buried in Graafschap Cemetery (Sect C, B58 G8).
