I am researching :
Born: January 5, 1825
Died: November 19, 1871
Hardin City, Iowa
Born: November 3, 1831
Died: September 11, 1894
Evert Luttje and his wife Geeske Gertsama were born and raised in Holland. Married and settled in Germany where four of their children were born. No knowledge as to what he did for a living.
In 1869 they went to Liverpool, England where they obtained passes and boarded a boat, the COLORADO, and sailed for America.
Arriving in June they traveled west and settled on a farm near Hardin City , in Hardin County, Iowa.
In November their fifth child Eveline was born.
Two years later Evert Died of Thyphoid Fever.
No information has been found regarding their parents nor any brother's or sister's that they may have had.
George the oldest child took over helping his Mother to run the farm until 1884 when the family moved to South Dakota.
If you have any information and could share it, I would appreciate it. (or I would be pleased to share what I have).
