I am interested in PETER STAM'S wife, KATHERINE BEEMSTER STAM. Katheryn was born May 30, 1840 in Holland. Her father was JOHN BEEMSTER. This information was given by her husband, Peter Stam in her death record. She died in Green Bay, Wisconsin, U.S.A. February 9, 1916. Peter died in Green Bay October 20, 1930.
A distant family member told me that this Katheryn Stam was the mother of my great-grandmother, MAARTJE 'MARY OR MARIE' BAKKUM PAULS. Marie's death record states that her parents were DIDERIC BAKKUM and TRIJNTJE 'KATHERYN' BEEMSTER so I don't know if this is true. I do have pictures of Marie Bakkum's mother, Katheryn, taken in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1913.
I have tried to find a death record for a TRIJNTJE OR KATHERYN BAKKUM to no avail. It is possible that Katheryn remarried and her second husband was Peter Stam. I do not know the name of Katheryn Bakkum's parents from any other source.
All these people were born in Holland. I later learned that Maartje Bakkum was born June 18, 1864 in Wognum, Noord-Holland, Netherlands. I am hoping that someone can help me out.
