I found them.....

Death of Maggie Prins:
Parents named as Klaas and Fanny Bishop (Dutch Bis(s)chop)

Looking for a marriage Prins X Bisschop I find:
Staphorst 28 Mar 1861, Jan Prins and Grietje Bisschop

And a son born around 1867:
Klaas Prins, born Staphorst 18 Nov 1866 at 01.00 hrs

Emigration records:

Jan Prins, aged 34, laborer, single
Year of dep. 1867,
Number of companions: 0,
Destination: North America,
Place of departure: Staphorst
He is listed as not married, but that was not an uncommon mistake

Grietje Bisschop, aged 28, married,
Year of dep. 1868,
Number of companions: 1 (I assume son Klaas),
Destination: North America
Place of departure: Staphorst
Note: joining her parents
Her age is wrong, but also that is not uncommon.

The details of the family:

Jan Prins
Born Staphorst 09 Oct 1833 at 18.00 hrs
Son of Geert Jans Prins and Hendrikje Schra
Married Staphorst 28 Mar 1861 to:
Grietje Bisschop
Born Rouveen (Staphorst) 07 Jan 1830 at 06.00 hrs
Daughter of Klaas Bisschop and Femmigje de Weert

Klaas Prins (male)
Born Staphorst 18 Nov 1866 at 01.00 hrs.

Marriage Prins X Bisschop:

Birth Jan Prins:

Birth Grietje Bisschop:

Birth son Klaas:

If you would like to know if they had more children who died before 1868, I can look that up for you, but then I have to search all the birth records and that will take some time.... Just let us know.

Kind regards,
