Simon immigrated to the USA from the Netherlands when he was 3 years old. He is the son of Gerrit Jans Herrema b. 1862 and Bregtje Sybes Travaille (1860-1929) He was not given a middle name and he thought he should have one, so he took the initial C and always signed his name S.C. Herrema. When asked what the C stood for, he said it was Cyrus, so that is what we always thought his real name was.
He married Tietske (Tillie) Piersma on Sept. 24, 1914 and they were blessed with six children:
1. Gertrude Mae Herrema (Berends) 1915-2004
2. George Edward Herrema 1916-2009
3. Beatrice Ella Herrema (Remtema) 1917-2003
4. Russell J Herrema 1920-2006
5. Maynard John (Mink) Herrema 1923-
6. Mildred June Herrema (Ickes) (Gabbert) 1927-
They also had 27 grandchildren.
