My grandfather was Sam Veenstra. His mother was Folkje vander Schaaf. Her brother was Lieuwe. Lieuwe (1831-1891) came to Iowa around 1870 with his two sons, Wiebe (1866-1936) and Joe (1861-1922). Joe was actually a lot of help to my grandfather, Sam, in getting him set up in farming in the Red River Valley of northern Minnesota.
I am hoping to find a living decedent of Joe vander Schaaf who has old pictures of Joe, Wiebe, and Lieuwe.
I would particularly like to find pictures of Sam as a young man and his wife, Nellie. (Nellie stayed with Joe for a time prior to marrying Sam.)
So, I am hoping you can connect me with a descendant.
I have developed a fairly thorough genealogy, but the difficulty comes with finding phone numbers.
I thank you in advance for any assistance. Again, I have developed a lot of good information and would love to share with anyone interested.
