I am searching for a ancestors of Harm MASSELINK (b. 3 Feb 1841 in either Hardinghs or Drenthe, d. 14 Sep 1923 in Zeeland, MI). Harm immigrated to the Zeeland, MI area in 1866.
His wife was Geesje BENIERMAN (b. 12 Aug 1944 either Haftenkamp or Drenthe, d. 1917 in Zeeland, MI). She immigrated to the Zeeland, MI area in 1866. I do not have evidence that they immigrated as a married couple, but I'm figuring they might have.
Hendrick (b. 10 Mar 1829 d. 31 Oct 1907) immigrated 8 Nov 1882.
Hendrick Jan (b. 11 Feb 1832 d. Aug 1924) immigrated in 1882.
All settled in the Zeeland, MI area, where there is a gigantic Dutch community. They proliferated rapidly.
Any information would be very, very appreciated!
