Am trying to locate the gravesite location and/or obituary for my great grandmother. Research so far has her living in Adams County in the 1910 census and being married to and living with Jacob Lambert and his 6 children along with her 2 sons, Bert and John. Birth 1871 and she immigrated from Holland in 1884.

Trish,
Thank you so much for helping me by providing the information I have been searching for on my great grandmother. I can go visit her grave now that I know where she is.
It helps to have a little more information on Gertie to maybe locate my grandfather's real father. Gertie apparently had my grandfather Bert before she married Reints Joustra who adopted my grandfather. Gertie apparently divorced him and then married Jacob Lambert.
Boy, lives get pretty complicated to try to figure them out.

Thanks again.
Cyndee

Trish,

I wanted to let you know that my 2 sisters and I made the trek up to the Quincy cemetery near Castle Rock flowage in Wisconsin and we were able to locate my Great Grandmother, Gertrude Joustra Lambert's gravesite.

Thank you so much for helping us finally locate her final resting place.

Hello, I am not related. Geertje/Gertie's maiden name was Vanderberg. Her parents were Douwe/Domve/Dauwe Vanderberg & Takje/Flora/Florence Waardenberg. Bert's name was most likely Gilbert, and he was born (According to his WWI draft card), September 22, 1892 in Le Mars Iowa, which is in Plymouth County, Iowa.

I don't know if he had a civil birth record, but he most likely had a church baptismal record. I don't know what religion they would have been. I have a list of churches included in this posting for Le Mars.

Gertie married Reints in 1895 in Plymouth County, Iowa.

Gertie immigrated with her mother and 5 other brothers & sisters in 1884. Most of her siblings also married in Le Mars.

Hope this helps, Ruth Pokorny
