My name is Dennis Bergakker. My grandfather was Arthur Bergakker. His sisters were Alice and Dena and his brothers were Peter and John. They all live in South Dakota which is where I was born. I believe there was another sister (your relative) but I never met her.

My grandfather was married to Zeina Scholten. He died in 1965 and my grandmother died in 1989. I beleive both were born in 1900. They had 5 children. Two died in early childhood. The others are Laurence ( my father), Ruth (married to Melvin Wierenga) and Larry. My father died in 1973 at the age of 48.

John was married to Bertha Gort. They lived in Grand Rapids Michigan as do most of the Bergakkers that I am aware of.
They had four daughters Judy, Carol, Linda and Joanne. John died in the early 1980's but Bertha is still alive.

Peter married Winnie ( I don't know the maiden name ). They had several children but I don't know thier names. For some reason we never socialized much with that side of the family.

Dena married John Scholten. They never had any children and treated my family as their children because we live nearby them until we moved to Michigan in 1963. Both have died - John in the early 1970's and Dena around 1990.

Alice married Peter Van Genderin (spelling ?). They never had any children either. I believe both have died but don't know when.

The Bergakker family lived in an around Corsica, South Dakota. My grandfather and grandmother are both buried in the cemetary there as are John and Dena Scholten. I am not aware of any Bergakkers still living in South Dakota.

I hope this is of some help to you. I would be interested in hearing information that you have on the Bergakker family.
