My great-great-grandfather was Klaas Dijkhuis. He emigrated to Holland, Michigan in 1852 or 1853 when he was quite young. He had cousins by his uncle Willem Lues Dijkhuis that remained in the Groningen region. I am looking for any living descendents that might still reside in Groningen or the Netherlands generally. One descendent was Pieter Dijkhuis who died on July 18, 1945 in Ulrum. One of Pieter's children was Martje, who passed away in 1999. She married Dirk Ozinga in 1960. I believe Pieter had two other children but I have not been able to locate them. I'm guessing he also had grandchildren. Pieter's brothers and sisters are listed below:

Willemina, 1887-1976
Jozeph, 1884-1965
Trijntje, 1901-1975
