Jane Verhulst/Huisheere/TerMaat Mystery

Jane Verhulst/Huisheere/TerMaat Mystery

Surnames: TerMaat, Huisheere, Verhulst
Hi,I am looking for information on a possible wedding between Jane Verhulst (formerly Huisheere)to a TerMaat sometime between 1923 and 1930. Jane was married to Edward 'Adrian' Verhulst but he died in 1923.
My family had no knowledge that Jane was remarried until my grandmother came across a clipping of her mother's wedding announcement. My grandma's mom is Jane's daughter. In the announcement, it says the Dorthy Verhulst, daughter of Mrs. J. TerMaat, with no mention of a father. Dorthy (Dot) got married April 29, 1931 to Cornelius (Casey) Greeneway at First Reformed Church in Vesper.
I have found the occasional reference to a Mrs. John TerMaat, but it is not an uncommon name, and my family has been friends with TerMaat's and I believe there a few on my family tree.
I believe Jane was listed as a TerMaat in the 1930 census, but I can't find any information on a wedding or divorce of Jane to a TerMaat. Dot never said anything about it and when my grandma asked her about it, didn't want to talk about it.
The would have lived somewhere in central WI, probably around the Sherry, Arpin, Vesper area
Any information would be appreciated!

There is a burial for a John Termaat in the same cemetery as Adrian Verhulst, and his age matches the John in the 1930 census with Jane. He was older than her - the birth year on his page should say 1865 instead of 1965.

Have you looked for marriage information or an obit for Dorothy's sister Violet? That may give clues.

Thank You! This helped me track down who it was. I haven't been able to find Violet's marriage announcement, but I'll keep looking.
