Despite the deathyear 1883 on her gravestone, Elisabeth Woudstra is very probably born on May 19, 1882 in the south of the Dutch northern province Friesland, the fifth of six children of Hans Woudstra and Antje Bloem, who emigrated in 1903 to South Dakota, Charles Mix County, Platte area, but returned between 1910 and 1920 to the Netherlands. Elizabeth emigrated in 1903 too, so probably with her parents (and siblings). In 1905 she marries to Joseph or Joe Groen and they live in Signal Township near Platte in Charles Mix County. According to the Census 1910 she lives then with her husband Joe Groen and their four children in Forbes Township, Charles Mix County, South Dakota. According to the Census 1920 she lives then with her husband Joseph and seven children Groen in Charles Mix County, South Dakota. A year later she dies, 38 years aged.
