She is born in January 1895 as Affien Ungersma in a former, very tiny Dutch settlement, but with the Maxwell Christian Reformed Church and a sanatarium for lepers (tuberculosis sufferers, leprozen), at the location of present Chico Springs, 22 miles east of Maxwell, Colfax County, in the northeast of New Mexico. Her parents arrived there in April 1893. It had in 1890 112 inhabitants, probably all Dutch and from the northeastern province Groningen, where the Ungersmas also came from. See for much more info and photos:

About 1903 the families Oldenburger and Ungersma moved to the southwestern part of Montana, Gallatin County, Manhattan, not far away from the also very tiny Dutch settlement Holland, later on called Amsterdam.

On 21 November 1917 Effie Ungersma, 22 years aged, married in Manhattan, Gallatin County, Montana to the eight year older Jacob Terpstra.

In October 1918 they farm near Anceney, about 10 miles southwest of Amsterdam-Churchill, when their first child, Ernest, was born. In the beginning of 1920 they live in Gallatin County too. Then they moved to Iowa.
