POSTHUMUS - Friesland to NJ

My husband, Henry (Hank) , has ancestors from Friesland with the surnames of
See rest of Friesian surnames below .

In 1810, Obbo Catharinus POSTHUMUS married a Gyrttie BROERSMA. They lived
in Exmorra.
Their son Pier Obes married Boukjen Tabes BORKES about 1838; and their son Hinne married Maaike LAANSMA 4/27/1876)
Maaike and Hinne had many sons, 6-8 and their son Pier married Jennie BAKKER daughter of Andrew and Louise KUIPERS BAKKER.

This is the family that emigrated from Friesland and came to the US. They settled in the Garfield/ Paterson area of NJ. (The LAANSMA line ended up in Michigan.)

Pier and Jennie were Hank's grandparents.
