    Notes 
    • [The information on
      this part of the family was given to me by a Grand daughter of this
      couple, Betty (Karsten) Addink of 2284 Karendale, Riverside, CA
      92506, ph: 909/780-3078. She visited us at the Hospitality
      House in Honolulu, Hawaii. and on July 2, 1993 she sent the
      following information. Wopke and Abbie "farmed and retired in the
      Falmouth, Michigan area. They are both buried in the Falmouth
      Cemetery. I don't remember much about my Grand parents but I
      know Grandpa liked to ice fish and he died of a heart attack while ice
      fishing. Grandma was a strong Christian who attended the Nazarene
      Church. Her 70th birthday wish was that all her Grand children
      will be Christians. I'm not sure about 2 I have lost touch with but
      the rest are Christians. Grandma was used to lead me to Christ by
      living a close, personal relationship with Christ. Abby, called
      Obeltje was the midwife for all her grandchildren. She delivered a
      total of 101 babies in all, according to a record book in possession
      of Aunt Anna.
