Relationship=Great-granddaughter of Pieter Cornelisz Dalenberg.
Last Edited=17 Mar 2005

     Lyntje Kuijper was born circa 1848 in the Netherlands.1 She was the daughter of Cornelius Kuijper and Maartje Dalenberg.
          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? Lyntje, age 12, was enumerated in the household of her parents on the 1860 Federal Census for the Blue Island Post Office in Worth Township, Cook County, Illinois.1 Follow the link to see the census image. She was not enumerated with her parents in Hyde Park, Cook County, Illinois. Her expected age is 22.2
