Surnames: van den Heuvel, van der Wijst, Vander Weyst
My great grandmother was Hendrina van den Heuvel. She was born in Boekel, North Brabant, Netherlands on February 10, 1841 and died in Newport, Washington on April 1, 1924.

She married Francis van der Wijst (Frank VanderWeyst) on May 3, 1872 in Boekel.

They had six sons, two of whom died in the Netherlands.

They arrived in the US with their four living sons on April 9, 1891 on the SS Veendam. They lived in Little Chute, Wisconsin, and Mayhew Lake, Minnesota.

They homesteaded alongside their son, John VanderWeyst in Hollandville, Blaine County, Montana. After a storm in 1922 destroyed all the crops, they moved with John and his family to Newport, where they died.

For their 50th Wedding Anniversary, Hendrina received a letter from her sister, Anna. I am trying to find more information about Anna.

Her father was Hendricus van den Heuvel and her mother was Petronella Verriett.
