I am looking for information regarding Maria Justina Oostrum born 25 June 1803 to Abraham Oostrum and Geertruida Pul.
Maria Justina married Jan Van Steenwyk baptized 24 August 1806 in Utrecht to parents Aarnout (Arnoldus) Van Steenwyk and Niesje Van Vliet aBram and Maria were married 25 September 1827 in Loenen. They may have lived in Maartensdjk/Utrecht. Jan was a butcher, deformed.
In 1847 they sailed from Rotterdam to Baltimore on the ship Nagasaki with their children: Arnoldus (William Arnoud) 1828-1892; Abram 1830-1900; William 1832-1912; John gysbert 1834-1920; Niesje no information, except she was a cripple;
Gerrit Jan 1837-1885; Gertruida 1839-?
Jan V.S. died within about two months of arrival in Pella IA
and Maria Justina raised her children on a farm until the youngest was about 18. Then records in the Office of the Clerk of Courts Book J page 412 in Oskaloosa Iowa announces
she married Klaas Van Ginkel, 1857.
After that announcement, there is no record of either Maria Justina Oostrum or Klaas Van Ginkel.
The Souivenir History of Pella Iowa1847-1922 shows a Klaas Van Ginkel arriving in Pella IA in 1857, together with thirteen other family members headed by Mr. and Mrs. Aalt van Ginkel.
