Marie had one sister and 2 or more brothers. Maybe related to De Jueng / De Young family on Marie's mother's side of the family.

My great-great grandmother's maiden name was Jelsma or Jelsman, not sure where she met Samuel and married. My family roots took me from Iowa to California where Marie is buried in Tulare.

Yes, Marie Jelsma was the oldest sister, her mother was a De Young and a sister to my father, Peter Cornelius Jelsma, who died January 1950. Peter was the youngest child and stayed with his mother until she died. Eva Jelsma Quyle was the other sister, died 1957. Bert Jelsma was the oldest, died in Logan, OK(near Guthrie, OK) in 1988. Henry Jelsma died in Okla. City, OK,he was married to Marie Jelsma,he died early before Peter, sometime in 1940's. 5 children. Garrett Jelsma was the father. I am looking for any relatives of this family. My name is Mary Jane Jelsma Bright please contact me. Denny Jelsma is our cousin.

I don't have anything new to add but I have a question I'm hoping you can help answer for me. In search for a unique anniversary gift for my husband I realized I don't know anything about my mothers family. My mother died so I can't ask her and most of her family have passed to, those that I knew (military families aren't the best for staying in touch). Anyway, my mother's mother's maiden name was Jelsma and I can't really find out any info on that surname, where it comes from, what it means....etc. Could you help with giving me any info you have on the surname "Jelsma"? Would really appreciate it. :)

This question was posted some time ago but I thought I would go ahead and respond. My maiden name is Jelsma and I have done a lot of research on the Jelsma name and family lines. From my research I have found the origin of the Jelsma name is from the location of Jelsum in Friesland. When Napoleon declared that all families in the Netherlands must declare a family name (surname) many of the names were chosen from places or were chosen as a derivative of another name such as Pietersma was a derivative of Pieters so another train of thought is that Jelsma is derived by combining the name Jelle with -sma to become Jelsma. Either way, when a Dutch surname ends with 'sma' it indicates the origin of the family was in the province of Friesland.

Jelsma is such an uncommon last name. If you don't mind me asking where is your family from? My great grandparents Jelsma lived in Nebraska.

Surnames: Mrs.
I live in Dyersburg, TN. My father was Peter C. Cornelius Jelsma, his mother was a De Young, his father was Gerrit Jelsma. He was the youngest child and was born in Marion, Iowa, died in Cushing, Okla. at the age of 50 yrs. of age. Our family did go to Nebraska before they moved to help develop the territory for Oklahoma to become a state. Egbert Jelsma had two sons, and they were Peter and Gerrit, they were the begining of our family, I just learned and they were in Nebraska.
Now, Lawrence Jelsma, also lived in Guthrie, Okla.and he was my grandfather's brother, he was the treasurer of Guthrie and they named a football stadium in Guthrie, Okla. to honor him. It is still called "The Jelsma Football Stadium," listed on the website of the state of Oklahoma's as 13th historic site, and a very well built stadiums, etc. It is the 87th listed on the website of Guthrie, Okla. website.
I am Mary Jane Bright, I go by Janey and Marie Jelsma Shoenhair was my father's older sister. She had two children and lived in Stockton, CA. Her husband was a farmer of cotton there. My father was the youngest of 5 children and was raised in Guthrie, Okla., his mother was a De Young. Their are several Peter's in our family so it is confusing and Lawrence's, etc.
I would like to know you and where are you, etc. You are my relative if you are a Jelsma, a De young, even a Paas.
Janey
