I am looking for confirming evidence that the three sisters, Gepke b. 1827; Frauke, b. 1832; and Trientje, b. 1836
are the following three women:
Gebke Brugman had a son (unknown father) in Rorichum named Hinderk, b. 1852. A "Hepska" Bakker with a son, Henry, and Aaron Reintsemer b. 1855 was living with Meint Reintsemer in the 1860 Census.
In 1870 I found a Gepke Reintsama still in Ogle children Henry, Otto, Hai and Katie. A recent note from a decendent reports that "Gepke had 2 sons and 1 daughter with Meint. They were named Otto,
Hai M. and Kate. Meint had a son from the previous marriage to a Frauke Muntenga in 1854 by the name of Hiram. Along with Henry, that made it 4 sons and 1 daugher."
I think Frauke Bakker (Bagger) may have married Lupke Folkerts in 1857 in Stephenson Co., Ill. They had 7 children: Almina, Hilke, Folkerdine, Elizabeth, Catharine, Henry and Folkert.
In 1870 and 1880 family in Loran, Stephenson Co.l, Ill.
Trientje Bakker (my ancestor) married Arend Jakobs Brugman in Sept 1860 in Stephenson Co., Ill. They had 10 children: Henry, Elizabeth, Helen/Hilke, William, Clara/Gebke, George/Geird,
Heie, Elizabeth, Katie, and William (Bill). 1870 Family was in Loran, Stephenson Co., Ill. In 1880 in Forreston, Ogle Co., Ill. In 1900 in Colfax, Grundy Co., Iowa. This is were both Arend and
Trientje are buried.
I Believe these three women found in the same are of Illinois are indeed the three sisters from
Rorichum; however, I have no concrete evidence. Does anyone have evidence one way or the other?
