Tetje Bakker married Aris Eelman on April 2, 1857 in Texel, The Netherlands. They had seven children: Etie (Ida) Eelman Temple, Willem (William) Eelman, Marretie (Mary) Eelman Westmaas, Jan Eelman, Jantie (Jennie) Eelman Luidens, Cornelia (Kate) Eelman Rooks and Jacomina (Minnie) Eelman Timmer.

Tetje was a member of the Dutch Reformed Church.

In 1866, Aris and Tetje emigrated from The Netherlands to Michigan, USA. Aris went first in March of 1866 and Tetje followed with the children in August of 1866. According to the "Staat van landverhuizers" (status of immigrants) they were well-to-do. In Texel, Aris was a cattle farmer and the Ottawa County Michigan Index of 1892-93 is also listing him as a farmer.

Tetje wrote a letter to Aris before she left The Netherlands, the content of which is pictured at right.
