Roelof and Jenneken and four children emigrated in 1866. They embarked in Le Havre, France, on 13 August, accommodated aboard Circassian, which arrived in New York on 20 Sept (passenger list).
The family settled just north of Overisel, MI, on a farm that by 1873 consisted of 80 acres, and was then worth about $1,500 (map of farm).
In 1880, the farm was 94 acres, worth $3000, and producing $1500 of goods per year (corn, oats barley, wheat, and eggs). It was populated by 4 horses, 14 cattle, 8 pigs, and 60 chickens.
Jenneken died of cancer. She is buried in New Overisel Cemetery (B182 G1).
