Mary came to America with her family when she was young.

Jacob and Mary bought the South Olive farm from Aart van 't Groenewoud, his stepfather, at 15 cents an acre (map of farm). Due to Jacob's ill health and heart problems, the farm, 140 acres in 1897, was poorly managed, though he did hire a maid and a man to run the farm. Unfortunately, they owned the worst clay farm in the area, and much of the land was swampy. Once lightning struck some exposed muck, and underground it burned for two years. The area later became known as "The Willows."

By 1912 the family owned 100 acres, and were neighbors with Derk and Gezina Arens, who became good friends. Mary was known as a gentle and good woman. After Jacob's death, Mary remained on the farm with son Gerrit.

Mary is buried in North Holland Cemetery (R6 B4 L11).
