    12. [S3] Rutgert Brinks Family History 1794-1934, Henriette Morgenstern, (Name: Brinks Family Re-union; Date: 1934;), p1.
      Nine years later in 1867, Mrs. Rutgert Brinks and the three youngest sons, Geert, who married Margien Martens and their three children (Ralph, Annie and John), and Jan and Harm, who were not married, left the Netherlands for America. They made the trip in nine and a half days. They settled near Black Lake, were the boys worked for Knoll and Vredeveld, making cord wood and peeling bark.

      Soon after they bought a one hundred and forty-five acre farm around what was then known as Hopkins Dock and now would be located in the northwest part of Laketown township, county of Allegan, State of Michigan. Kalamazoo was the big city at that time and many of the young girls and boys went there to work to earn money, which they saved and later used to buy their farms.
