Jakob's parents' marriage, listing his grandparents--

Archieflocatie: Groningen
Gemeente: Grijpskerk
Soort akte: Huwelijksakte
Nummer: 23
Datum: 26-11-1835
Man Naam: Klaas Wiebes Zijlstra
Plaats: Kommerzijl, gem. Grijpskerk

Moeder man Naam: Jantje Klaassens (no surname given)
Moeder vrouw Naam: Antje Harms van der Laan

Grietje's parents were married in the neighboring province of Friesland--

Archieflocatie: Friesland
Toegangnr: 30-01
Inventarisnr: 2011
Gemeente: Achtkarspelen
Soort akte: Huwelijksakte
Nummer: 16
Datum: 08-05-1837
Man Naam: Wytse Reitses Nieuwenhuis
Vrouw Naam: Jenke Pieters van der Weg

Wytse was born about 1810; here he is in his father's 1811 surname registration--

Nieuwenhuis, Reitze Jans, Drogeham
k. IJlse 19, Frietzen 17, Ulkjen 14, Jantien 11, Klaas 9, Jan 6, Wytze 1
Mairie Augustinusga, fol. 49

Wytse had a brother born in 1814, and from this certificate we learn his mother's name (but no surname is given)--

Geboorteakte Achtkarspelen (mairie Augustinusga), 1814
Aangiftedatum 7 februari 1814, akte nr. 3
Gosse Reitzes Nieuwenhuis, geboren 6 februari 1814
Zoon van Reitze Jans Nieuwenhuis en Grietje Klazes

Sister IJlse (Itje) died in 1816, and father Reitze died in
1826, but still no clue to Grietje's surname, if she had one--

1) Overlijdensakte Achtkarspelen (mairie Augustinusga), 1816
Itje Reitzes Nieuwenhuis, overleden 15 september 1816, oud 24 jaar, dochter van Reitze Jans Nieuwenhuis en Grietje Klazes

2) Overlijdensakte Achtkarspelen, 1826
Reitze Jans Nieuwenhuis, overleden 28 maart 1826, oud 67 jaar, gehuwd (aged 67 years, married; born ~1759)

This could be her, meaning she had the same surname as her husband (and that could be how he chose the name in 1811 if his wife already had that family name)--

Overlijdensakte Achtkarspelen, 1826
Aangiftedatum 26 september 1826, blad nr. 39 (suppl. nr. 1-9)
Grietje Klazes Zijlstra, overleden 25 september 1826, oud 55 jaar, weduwe (aged 55 years, widowed; b. ~1771)

Now for Grietje's maternal grandparents--

It looks like Wytse's parents were Frisian, and Jenke's parents were from Groningen (the on-line Frisian marriage certificate does not tell us their names, except we know from Jenke's patronym that her father was Pieter). I think that after a Frisian wedding, the couple had their children in Gron., since I find no births for them in Fries. But I can find no clues as to Jenke's parents' names. They were probably married before 1813, as Jenke was born about that year.

If you would like to know the siblings of these people, let me know, and I'll do some more looking.
