The story was transcribed for this BIOS by Beth De Leeuw of the Greater Sioux County Iowa Genealogical Society. Some research notes were added by Wilma J. Vande Berg

Aartje (Schoep) Rozeboom was born Oct. 25, 1865, Epe, Gelderland (died Oct. 20, 1952). Beert Rozeboom, born July 25, 1864 Doornspyk, Netherlands (died July 5, 1956). They were married March 8, 1892. Aartje and Beert Rozeboom were not blessed with children for the first five years of their married life. They really longed to have children and when Beertís sister Aaltje (Mrs. Lou Hoksbergen) died in child birth, Lou came to them to ask if they would take his little 3 year old daughter to live with them. So, it came to be that Marguerite Hoksbergen born in 1890 came to live with them. She lived with them for only 3 weeks when she became ill and died. This was a very sad time for Beert and Aartje. Then Lou came again and asked if they would take his little 5 year old daughter Hermina Hoksbergen to live with them. Beert and Aartje just couldnít take another child for fear it too would die. After Lou insisted that they take her and Beert and Aartje had prayed about it they decided that it was the Lordís will. At this time Aartje already knew she was to have a child of her own. Hermina Hoksbergen came to live with the family and stayed with them from the time she was 5 years old till she got married to Ed G. Vermeer, at the age of 20 years.
