Aaltje was born in Rotsterhaule, Schoterland. Odd by American custom, she was the 5th child, all of whom were named Aaltje Jochems, of the twelve children born to Jochem Berends Ketellapper & Geertje Martens Groen! This was often the custom during this time when a family suffered the loss of a child in this remote, northern part of Holland. In this family, it appears that 2 of the 5 Aaltje's lived into adulthood. The first four Aaltje's:
1) Aaltje J. b. Jun 1823, d. 30 Aug 1823
2) Aaltje J. b. 29 Aug 1824, m. 1 Feb 1846, d. ?
3) Aaltje J. b. 8 Dec 1825, d. 14 Dec 1826
4) Aaltje J. b. Jan 1826, d. 14 Oct 1826
5) this Aaltje J.
The remaining six children all lived into adulthood.
Aaltje married Jan M. Dijkstra. Unknown at this time whether or not they had children. She lived to the ripe old age of 89. She was my 2nd Great-Grand Aunt.
