Harmannus was born in the village Bedum in the northwestern central part of the Dutch northeastern province Groningen. His parents are Hindrik Klugkist, 36 years, wholesale dealer, licensed victualler (grossier, slijter), and Cornelia Hindriks Kruizinga.
Harmannus Klugkist, 21 years aged, son of husk miller (pelmolenaar) Hendrik Klugkist and Cornelia Kruizinga, married on 13 May 1861 in his birthtown Bedum, province Groningen, to Pieterke van Maar, also 21 years aged, born in the little country village Westerdijkshorn, municipality Bedum, daughter of Heine Klaassens van Maar and Grietje Alderts Smit.
Farmer Harmannus and Pieterke had the following children in Westerdijkshorn, municipality Bedum:
- Cornelia, born 7 March 1862;
- Grietje, born 18 June 1863;
- Hendrik Jacob, born 8 July 1864;
- Heina, born 18 February 1867. FAG nr. 47924787. She
married in 1889 in Bedum to farmer Pieter (Peter) van
Dijken (Van Dyken), FAG nr. 47924783 and emigrated after
June 1892 to the USA, Montana.
In March 1892, when his son Hendrik Jacob (Henry) married, Harmannus is still a farmer.
On 27 March 1896 Harmanner Klugkist arrived at the age of 56 years with his wife Pieterke (55 y), their children Grietje (33 y) and Hendrik (32 y, farmer), their daughter-in-law Lowina Klugkist (32 y) and their grandchildren Hermanner (4 y) and Jan Klugkist (3 y), on the SS Southwark, which had departed from Antwerp, at the harbor of New York, Ellis Island. Their destination is Manhattan, Gallatin County, in the southwestern part of Montana.
Daughter Grietje died probably before June 1900, very likely in Gallatin County.
Farmer H Klugkist (61 y) lived in June 1900 with his wife Pieterke (60 y), their son Harry [Hendrik, Henry] (36 y, farm laborer) and their grandchildren Herman (8 y) and John Klugkist (7 y) in the former town Salesville, since 1927 called Gallatin Gateway, in the western part of Gallatin County.
In 1904 his wife Pieterke died in Gallatin County, Montana at the age of about 60 years.
In 1910 widower Herman Klugkist (71 y) lived with his son Henry Klugkist (46 y) and his sons Herman (18 y) and John (17 y), both born in Holland, in the small community Denver, about 10 miles northwest of Grangeville, the seat of Idaho County, in the north central part of Idaho.
Harmannus died in 1912 at the age of about 72 years, very probably in Denver, Idaho, and was buried in 1912 in Grangeville, Idaho, but shares with his wife Pieterke a gravestone at Hills Cemetery near Churchill in Gallatin County, Montana.
