Last Edited=4 Jun 2005

     Jakob Kuijper was born on 22 November 1843 in Schoorl, Noord Holland, Netherlands.1 He was the son of Cornelius Kuijper and Maartje Dalenberg.1
          Cornelius and Maartje, with their 7 children, immigrated during the first half of 1849 to the United States of America on board the Massachusetts of Boston. It was not a pleasant, happy voyage for this family. Disease raced through the boat and killed 4 of their children. First, Cornelius (age 8) and Pietertje (only 2 years old) died on the 24th of May. Two days later, Antje died. She was only a year old. Three days after that, on the 29th, Maartje, one month short of 9 years old, died. I can't imagine what it must have been like for them. Surely they were full of hope before they began their voyage. Did they manage to keep hope even with half of their family dying? Jacob, age 16, was enumerated in the household of his parents on the 1860 Federal Census for the Blue Island Post Office in Worth Township, Cook County, Illinois. His occupation was given as farming.2 Follow the link to see the census image. He was not enumerated with his parents in Hyde Park, Cook County, Illinois. His expected age is 27.3
          Jakob Kuijper was married twice but I do not know the order that he married his spouses. Jakob married Antje Dijk.1 Jakob married Neeltje Van Bodegraven on 1 August 1877.1 Jakob died in 1901.1 He was about 58 old.
