Schippers may well refer to bargemen as well as boatmen. Oude Pekela is about 18 kilometers south, at its closest point, of a large bay that opens out of the Ems River coming out of Germany, and eventually empties into the North Sea. If your relatives go back some distance in time, that might be considered a pretty good distance to travel to be a boatman.
