Ancestors USA

USA-icon1. On February 13th, 1887 Anton (Anthony) Dirk Horstmanshoff was born in Amsterdam . Probably around 1910 he moved to Hull, Sioux County, Iowa.
Berend Te Slaa and his wife Berendina Gezina Somsen emigrated from Aalten in the Netherlands to the United States on 24 July 1911. Their daughter Grada Te Slaa met Anthony Dirk in the USA and they married on 22 March 1917.
Grada and Anthony had three sons; Henry, Joe and Bert. Anthony died December 20, 1951 and was given eight grandchildren.
Many Horstmanshoff family members in the States will descend from Grada and Anthony. Are you one of them? Let me (Rob) know!
