No relation; I just do this for fun. I don't know where the Holleman that you mentioned ties in, but I'll see if we can learn any more about Akke's family. We know her parents were Piebe Ypkes Posthumus and Dirkje Jans Rauwerda.

Piebe's death:

Overlijdensakte Barradeel, 1860
Aangiftedatum 18 augustus 1860, blad nr. 30
Piebe Ypkes Posthumus, overleden 16 augustus 1860, oud 71 jaar, gehuwd
So he was born about 1788 to Ypke Posthumus.

Dirkje's death:

Overlijdensakte Franekeradeel, 1862
Aangiftedatum 17 maart 1862, akte nr. 17
Dirkje Jans Rauwerda, overleden 15 maart 1862, oud 76 jaar, weduwe
So she was born about 1786 to Jan Rauwerda.

They were married before 1811; here are their children born after 1811:

1) Geboorteakte Barradeel (mairie Sexbierum)
Ypke Posthumus, geboren 18 maart 1812 zoon van Piebe Ypkes Posthumus en Dirkje Jans Rauwerda

2) Geboorteakte Barradeel (mairie Sexbierum)
Akke Posthumus, geboren 10 februari 1815 dochter van Piebe Ypkes Posthumus en Dirkje Jans Rauwerda

3) Geboorteakte Barradeel
Jan Posthumus, geboren 23 december 1818 zoon van Piebe Ypkes Posthumus en Dirkje Jans Rauwerda

4) Geboorteakte Barradeel
Pieter Posthumus, geboren 27 juli 1822 zoon van Piebe Ypkes Posthumus en Dirkje Jans Rauwerda

5)And this one was born about 1810:

Piebe's father registered the name Posthumus in 1811. Here he is with his then-living children and grandchildren:

Posthumus, Ypke Piebes, Oosterbierum
k. Jelle 25, Piebe 24, Hein 17, Lysbeth 27
kk. (v. Lysbeth) Ypke 2, Dirkje 4; (v. Piebe) Ypke 1
Mairie Sexbierum, deel 2, fol. 54v

Here is Ypke's death:

Overlijdensakte Barradeel, 1822
Aangiftedatum 7 december 1822, blad nr. 35 (suppl. nr. 1-11)
Ypke Piebes Posthumus, overleden 6 december 1822, oud 60 jaar, gehuwd

We don't know his wife's name, but she was still living in 1822.

Jan Rauwerda did not register the surname in 1811. Either the family had already been using the name (no--see below) or he was already dead. These may be two more of his children, a daughter and son:

1) Overlijdensakte Franekeradeel, 1819
Femke Jans de Rauwerda, overleden 25 september 1819, oud 36 jaar

2) Overlijdensakte Franekeradeel, 1876
Auke Jans Rauwerda, overleden 31 januari 1876, oud 88 jaar, gehuwd

Auke registered the family name in 1811, but he did not list any brothers, and women did not have to be registered:
Rauwerda, Auke Jans, Tzummarum
Mairie Minnertsga, fol. 52v
