Teunis Bieshaar (1843 - 1912), son of Mr. and Mrs. Koendert Bieshaar, was born in the Netherlands on Feb. 10, 1843. He came over from Holland to Pella on a boat in 1855 with his parents and two sisters, Jansje and Evertje.

Teunis' wife Jantje (1852 - 1922) was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Teunis (Van) Veenschoten. She came over on a ship from the Netherlands in 1855 with her parents and seven brothers and sisters: Hendrik, Evert, Jan, Willem, Evertje, Johanna and Catherina. Teunis Veenschoten was one of the first members of the Third Dutch Reformed Church.

Teunis Bieshaar and Jantje (Jennie) (Van) Veenschoten were married in Marion Co. on Nov. 26, 1873, and lived on a farm four miles west of Pella where their nine children were born: Conrad (married Nellie May Erickson), Johanna (Mrs. J.
