Subject: RE: And more Brethouwer notes

I THINK I figured out Maggie Jelsma, and agree with you that she is the same person as Katrina Jelsma who married John Benjamin Brethouwer on March 4, 1886 in Adams, Gage Co., NE. She is listed on all census records as Katie, Kate or other variations of Katrina, but I have her name in my file as Katrina Grietje Jelsma (which I need to look back and see where I got that from), and Grietje is a Dutch name that always got Americanized as Margaret, which would fit with Maggie. The marriage of Maggie Jelsma to John B. Brethouwer is also listed as March 4, 1886 in Lancaster Co., NE, but Lancaster & Gage are right next to each other so I think it was the same marriage and will have to see which county was correct.

On Florence Terry, I think from census records that she is the daughter of Charles H. Terry (b. abt 1844 in New York) and Anna (probably maiden name Farmer, b. abt 1850 in New Jersey). They had at least 4 children, born between 1870-1885 named Florence, Olive, Charles & Roy Matox, and they were living in Lincoln, Lancaster Co., NE in 1880. In 1900, Charles & Roy are listed as nephews in the household of (first name?) Farmer in Medicine, Lincoln Co., NE. Florence was born abt 1870 in New York, so she was 25 years younger than Jan Berend Brethouwer. I don't find Jan Berend in 1870 or later, so I am like you and think he may have died before Florence Terry was even born. As to which Brethouwer she married on August 22, 1895 in Lancaster Co., NE, the 1900 census indicates that it was Berend Brethouwer, born Aug 1866, so he is most likely the son of Christian as you had written early. It does list the sister Ruth as being born in 1885, and I had that Christian's daughter who was born in 1885 was named Johannah W. so that may just have been census taker error that listed the daughter & sister as both having the same first name. I am not finding another Ruth Brethouwer in my file who was born anywhere close to 1885. I can send you scans of the actual census pages if you would like to have them. The household is started on one page and finished on the next so it would be two scanned pages.
