    11. [S243] Memoir of John Vogel, Jan Vogel, (Name: Michigan History Magazine; Date: July-September, 1946;).
      "When I was twelve I began to help my father support the family. After about six months I secured a position in a carpenter’s shop as an apprentice. This step was undertaken with the aid and encouragement of my father who wanted me to learn the useful trade of carpentering. The shopkeeper’s name was Hermanus Diepenhorst who, like our family, lived at Noordeloos. The contract made with him provided for an apprenticeship of three years. It was agreed that my parents were to provide my food and clothing during the first year, that I was to earn my board during the second year, and that during the third year I was to receive such compensation as my ability warranted.

      "After two and a half years, when Diepenhorst emigrated with his family to Holland, Michigan, this contract came to an end. I was eager to accompany them and with Diepenhorst’s help tried to persuade my parents to let me go. My father’s mind had long been favorably inclined toward America but owing to his poverty he never was able to emigrate. The fact that I was his only living son filled him with apprehension. Yet after long consideration he decided to part with me, hoping that at some future time I might be able to help him go to America. He had the fullest confidence in Diepenhorst’s promise to look after my welfare. Diepenhorst paid my traveling expenses, and we left Noordeloos on August 6, 1854. My father, mother, and sisters accompanied me to Gorinchem where we took passage to Rotterdam and proceeded to sail to New York, by way of Hull and Liverpool. We lost some time while in England, and as our ship was a sailing vessel, we did not arrive at New York until about September 30. About eight days later we reached Holland, Michigan. My fifteenth birthday took place during the voyage, on September 8.

      "After making a brief investigation of the dense forest, we settled six miles north of Holland and named the place Noordeloos. We attacked the forest courageously but after a while our zeal vanished, and we moved to Grand Haven where we hoped to earn good wages at carpentering. But the financial reverses of the year 1856 so reduced the value of paper money that all my savings amounted to nothing. Nevertheless, Diepenhorst had hired me for the past two years at a monthly rate so that by November 1, I was able to pay everything I owed him on account of my traveling expenses from the Old Country. As I was unable to agree with him further about wages, I went to Zeeland, Michigan, where I spent the ensuing winter, remaining there till the spring of 1857."

    12. [S2] Personal Account, Letter from Aris Eelman, to his wife Tettje Bakker on Texel, Netherlands, May 1866; held by Loren Lemmen.
      "In the morning we rented a wagon for one dollar a person, which brought us [from Grand Rapids] to Noordeloos, not very far from Albert Siersema. Here we arrived at sunset. We drove away only at twelve o’clock. And then I waited in Noordeloos at the home of a Diepenhorst, whose brother [Frans] also came with me. And this man sent a letter to Albert, who came to get me from there. "
