Happy Birthday - March 2

Happy Birthday to:
  • Maude Mae (HOEKSTRA) Van HARTESVELDT, who was born on this date in 1890 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan. She would be 117 years old today, if she still lived. As it was, she lived to be 101 years old! Maude was the second daughter of my ancestors Martin HOEKSTRA and Jennie TON, and my great-grandfather John Martin HOEKSTRA's older sister. She married Frederick Carroll Van HARTESVELDT on 1 Jan 1913 in Kent County, and they had at least three children, including a child who died around age 5. While she lived in Detroit during the 1940's, Maude lived for many years in Sedona, Coconino County, Arizona. She died in Arizona on 2 Nov 1991.
