Illinois, USA
Death: Feb. 5, 1999

In 1920 Ethel Rinkema (7 y, born in Illinois), her father John Rinkema (34, Illinois), her mother Mrs. E Rinkema (32, Illinois), her brothers Clarance (10, Illinois), Henry (4, Illinois) and George (0, Illinois) were living at their own home in the village of South Holland, a former Dutch settlement of truck farmers, just south of Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.

In 1930 Ethel Rinkema (17), her father John Rinkema (44), her mother Heneritta (42), her brothers Clarence (20), Henry (14) and George (10) were still living in South Holland, Cook County, Illinois.

On 8 July 1937, Ethel Rinkema, 24 y, born in South Holland, Cook County, Illinois, and Jacob Steven Aggen, also 24 y, born in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, had in the city of Harvey, located just south of Chicago and west of South Holland, Cook County, Illinois daughter Elizabeth Jean Aggen.

In April 1940 Ethel (27), her husband Jacob Aggen (27, inspector at a steel mill) and their daughter Betty Jean Aggen (2) were living at a rented home at Chicago Road in South Holland, Thornton Township, Cook County, Illinois. They lived in 1935 in South Holland too, but in another house.
Right next to them lived Ethel's father John Rinkema (55, self employed grocer), her mother Henrietta (53) and her brother George (20, laborer at a steam railroad) at their own home, worth $5000.

Ethel died in February 1999 at the age of 86 years, very probably in South Holland, Cook County, Illinois, where her widower Jacob Aggen died too, in February 2000 at the age of 87 years.
