On 6 May 1872 she married in the Friesian northwestern municipality Het Bildt to the three years older baker and farmer Klaas Schuiling of the nearby village Sint Annaparochie, seat of Het Bildt.
About 1899 they emigrated with their son Thijs to the USA, Montana, Gallatin County, Bozeman, where they had from 16 April 1901 until 10 January 1911 five more children, Sietske, Ytje, Roelof, Adriaantje and Grietje Schuiling.
