I.1    Peter/Pieter Jans HELDER, christened on 26-05-1695 in Pieterburen, died <1771. In Protocol Gerechtelijke Archieven van Leens (RAG Toeg.nr/invent.nr 734/333,334) wordt op o.a.3 Febr.en 29 April 1747 een zaak behandeld van Hermannus Schonevelt namens zijn overleden moeder Catharina Molanus (doktersweduwe) tegen de diaconie van Leens. De kern van de zaak is dat Catharina Molanus volgens haar zoon recht had op vergoeding van geleverde medicijnen in opdracht van de diaconie verstrekt aan de huisvrouw van Piet Helder genaamd Anje Jans die in Juni 1742 "door zware blitskoortsen was aangetast". Voor zover thans bekend de oudste vermelding van de achternaam Helder voor deze familie.

In de inventarissen van boedels te Leens (RAG 734/10, acte 100) van 6 April 1763 komen in de schulden van Anje Jans, weduwe van Boele Jacobs voor: een schuld aan Pieter Helders kinderen van 4 Gld 2 St. en aan Pieter Helder van 2Gld. Kan hier uit worden geconcludeerd dat Pieter Helder (= Peter Jans Helder) dan nog in leven is?

In de boedelinventarissen van Leens wordt in de boedelbeschrijving van Daniel Berghuis en zijn overleden vrouw Aaltjen Sijbolts(8 October 1771) een tegoedpost van 1Gld genoemd ten laste van Pieter Helders weduwe (RAG 724/10 acte 177). M.a.w.Peter Jans Helder is dan reeds overleden! Son of Jan JACOBS, dagloner, and Imke SIJGERS.

De leeftijd van 88 jaar bij overlijden en de geboorteplaats Leens kloppen met Imke Peters. Het is bekend dat Jan Isebrands de naam van van zijn vrouw aanneemt en dus Jan Helder wordt. Waarom zij in de overlijdensakte Iemke Jans wordt genoemd en niet Iemke Pieters zou kunnen samen hangen met het feit dat haar vader Peter Jans bij haar overlijden bij de aangevers onbekend is.

138
Volgens Fred Reenders heeft het de volgende betekenis:
Jacob Pieters Helder is (wegens restant van een oorspronkelijk nog grotere "boekschulde") geld schuldig aan Adriaan Luitjens. Daarom wordt de werkgever van Jacob Pieters Helder, Wibbe Jans, voor de rechtbank gedaagd ("gearresteerde") met als doel een bedrag van 22 gld 16 stvers en 2 duiten in te houden op het loon wat Jacob Pieters van zijn baas nog te goed heeft of in de toekomst nog te goed mocht krijgen.
Een soort loonbeslag dus, avant la lettre. Aangezien de gedaagde partij
(Jacob Pieters) en de gearresteerde (zijn werkgever Wibbe Jans) niet
aanwezig zijn en dus geen verweer voeren, wordt overeenkomstig de wens van
Adriaan Luitjens (de arrestant) besloten.
Son of Peter/Pieter Jans HELDER (see also I.1) and Anje JANS.

NB: Moeder is hier Martjen JACOBS en niet WILLEMS in tegenstelling tot de inschrijvingen van de broers en zusters van Eelje waarbij steeds sprake is van Martje(n) WILLEMS.
In het doopboek van Zuurdijk wordt zij bij de inschrijvingen van haar kinderen Lysebeth en Jacob Berents Eenje Jacobs genoemd. Bij de inschrijvingen van de kinderen Jacob Lammerts, Pieter, en Grietje wordt zij in het doopboek van Warfhuizen Eilje Jacobs genoemd, en bij de inschrijvingen van de kinderen Martjen, Willem en Anje in Leens resp.

Married to Berent Jacobs, dagloner, landbouwer op Kattenborg onder Leens, christened on 18-08-1765 in Baflo, died on 05-02-1809 in Leens at the age of 43, buried on 10-02-1809 in Leens. Overlijdensakte vermeldt: " 1809 den vijfden Febr. is overleden Berent Jacobs, oud 40 jaren, gewoond hebbende op Kattenborg onder Leens, gehuwd geweest nalatende eene weduwe Eelje Jacobs, benevens 7 kinderen uit één huwelijk." (Angegeven lijken Leens RAG, inventarisnr. 252). Son of Jacob Lammerts and Grietje Berents. Voor dit huwelijk is geen hard bewijs geleverd. De koppeling berust tot nu toe op de voornaam van de man en op de vernoemingen van hun kinderen, in het bijzonder de vernoeming van de tweede zoon Jacob Lammerts naar zijn grootvader aan vaderszijde. Deze "dubbele" naam was nodig om onderscheid te maken met zijn oudste broer Jacob die genoemd werd naar de grootvader van moederszijde.
Ten tijde van de doop van hun dochter Anje (29-05-1808) woonden zij volgens het doopregister "op Kattenborg onder Leens". De buurt Kattenborg wordt vermeld op het minuutplan van het kadaster (Zuid-Leens, sectie B, blad 2 ,1829). In de Oorspronkelijk Aanwijzende Tafel (AOT) komt met perceelnr.578 en 579 in deze buurt Kattenborg voor de "weduwe van Berend Heller", als dagloner met 19 are 50 centiare huis en erf en 16 are 30 care boomgaard.
In "Aardrijkskundig Woordenboek der Nederlanden" door A. J. van der Aa komt in de editie van 1845 (deel 6) voor: Kattenborg, gehucht in Hunsingo, prov. Groningen, arr. En 6u W ten N. van Appingedam, kant. En 2 1/2 u. W.ten N. van Onderdendam, gem. En 1/2 u Z.O. van Leens, aan de Westzijde van de rijweg van Wehe naar Zuurdijk, met 5h(uizen) en 30 inw(oners).

"Determining exactly which families lived in the five arbeiders' huisjes "op Kattenburg onder Leens" has been difficult. From various genealogical records it appears that the following lived there at one time or another: the Bulthuises, Helders, Jolmans, and the Stoepkers. Three generations of Bulthuises lived "op Kattenberg." The first was that of Gieuwe [Gijsbrechtus] Hendricks Bulthuis (1812-1855); the second, Klaas Gijsbrechtus Bulthuis, (1843-1875); the third, Gijsbrechtus Klaas Bulthuis, the author of Four Score and Counting (1865 until he emigrated in 1892). All were day workers on farms." (Gordon de Young in "Gordons Reflexions",http://gordonsreflexions.wordpress.com)

H. Warmolts. Tijdens de dienst kwamen een aantal dagloners de kerk binnen en riep hun leider Meerten Jans Niewold de dominee toe: "Wolf, kom af". De burgemeester en de veldwachter werden gewaarschuwd en tegen de dagloners uit Houwerzijl, waaronder Pieter Berends Helder (Heller), wordt proces-verbaal opgemaakt.

Sinds die datum tot 1 Oct. 1821 verblijft hij in detentie te Appingedam. Het vonnis van 1 jaar gevangenisstraf en veroordeling in de kosten is wegens "eenvoudige diefstal", te weten het ontvreemden van een vijfschachten blauwe onderrok en van een blauwe bonte doek in de namiddag van 22 Juli 1821 ten huize van Ytje Cornelis (van Dijk), weduwe van Joost Geerts Venhuis, landgebruikster te Leens, jegens haar schoonzoon Albert Onnes Wolthuis.
Uit Gedenkb.Nijverheid II, pag.30-31 blijkt dat de diefstal heeft plaatsgevonden op de boerderij "Moestop", Leens Nr.11. Alle in het vonnis genoemde bewoners komen bij de beschrijving van deze boerderij voor.
Pieter Berends Helder was volgens één van de rechtbankverslagen(Toeg. 143/Invent.52) dagloner bij Scholtens, landbouwer onder Grijssloot.

They went to nearby Zoutkamp, a port on the North Sea, and boarded a coastal ship bound for Hellevoetsluis near Rotterdam. There they waited for a ship to sail to New York. (In the days before trans-Atlantic steamships, sailing lines did not maintain fixed schedules). A month later , on 6 April, they boarded the 459-ton sailing ship Kathryn Jackson with 167 other passengers. The trip across the Atlantic took 41 days. On May 17, the Kathryn Jackson arrived in New York City. The family boarded a steamboat sailing up the Hudson river to Albany. There they boarded a canal boat and traveled via the Erie Canal to Buffalo. From Buffalo, they sailed on a lake steamer to Chicago, where they transferred to a sailing ship. Imagine their surprise when they were dropped off on the beach at Macatawa, where the Black Lake empties into Lake Michigan. At that time, western Michigan was still largely wilderness. From Macatawa, they took a flatboat the remaining few miles to Holland. Klaas Jan and Anje settled in nearby Zeeland, one of the first families to do so. Sound familiar?

Enige dagen later hebben ze de zak samen naar Jacob Vonk gebracht om het bij hem te laten malen. Later hebben ze het meel opgehaald en verdeeld ten huize van Zwaantje Helder, zuster van Harm.
Getuige Durenkamp verklaart dat hij weit in de schuur had, Baukje Weegstra(Keegstra?) verklaart dat de beschuldigden bij haar aan huis hebben overlegd om weit van Durenkamp te gaan stelen. Zij verklaarde tevens dat beklaagde Visser haar op een avond had gezegd de deur op de klink te laten en niet af te sluiten, omdat beklaagde Helder tussen 9 en 10 uur 's avonds met de weit zou komen bij Douwe Visser met wie zij (= Boukje) samenwoont.
Ook Jacob Vonk verklaart dat Helder een zak met 75 kop weit bij hem heeft laten malen.

In 1865 Mr. Oostema served in Co. I 25th Michigan infantry and was later transferred to Co. K 28th Mich.in which he served with honor until the close of the war. He followed the carpenter trade on his return here and in 1895 and 1896 ran a grocery store.

Want de weduwnaar Verwey had besloten zijn kinderen een tweede moeder te geven, een die de genegenheid der kinderen bezat en die getoond had een goede verzorgster te zijn. Dat was dezelfde Gepke Helder, aan wie Albert, met griffel en lei, zijn eersten brief geschreven had,en het huwelijk, dat den 24en Augustus van dat jaar in haar geboortestad Groningen voltrokken werd, maakte voor het gezin een tijdelijk verblijf in die stad gewenscht.
Ook dit huwelijk werd spoedig door den dood verstoord. Den 15-den Juni '72 had Gepke het leven aan een dochtertje geschonken, dat, evenals Jan Verwey's overleden eerste kind, Anna Maria werd genoemd. Van den korten tijd dat zij van haar moederschap genieten kon zijn niet veel herinneringen overgebleven. Gepke Helder stierf reeds 4 Augustus van datzelfde jaar en opnieuw stond Jan voor de zware taak om tegelijk zijn meubelmakerij en zijn
gezin te besturen. Zijn vader bracht hem (Albert) naar meester Hesta, hoofd van een school-met-den-Bijbel, op de Lindengracht, die zijn vormende kracht op den kleinen maar vluggen jongen beproeven zou. Dien zomer kreeg het kind echter een buitenkansje: niet drie maar zes weken vacantie.

Daughter of Hendrikus (Henry) RIKSEN and Wapke (Jane) Vander VENNEN. Some things that you might have missed in the early days of Oak Harbor is
that the Dutch settlers did a lot of diking and draining to recover
lowlands for farming. The Hellers formed a family band during the time
when John Phillip Souza was the most popular musician in the country.
Martinus played the trumpet or coronet. Martinus was very strict with his
ten children. The girls worked and brought in money to the household.
The boys were allowed to go to school, but also worked and brought in
money. He used the accumulated wealth to buy up property at reduced
prices during the depression and had a very large amount of land
eventually. My dad, Simon, was an outstanding athlete and all of his
brothers loved baseball. They formed a town baseball team and built their
own baseball stadium. Simon was a farmer. For this reason, he was not
sent to war during WWII. He later left the farm to be a merchant,
surveyor, and then developed land. He built the local dry cleaners and ran
the business for a time.
My Grandfather, Martinus was quite a character and especially in matters of religion. When I was young, the town of Oak Harbor was a very religious place with a good sized Catholic church, as well as a Congregationalist church, a Dutch Reform church, Methodist, Presbyterian, Church of Nazarene, and many more. Many of the early settlers were highly opposed to card playing, drinking, and other mischief. My grandfather forbid the playing of card games in his house if the deck of cards had the traditional King, Queen, and Jack.
Apparently this had some sort of negative connotation. They would play
other games with other sorts of cards as long as they didn't have these
picture cards. Martinus was a Christian, but was also was outspoken
against all churches. He could read Biblical passages, but believed
churches were corrupt. As far as I know, none of the children were
brought up in any church, and my own father was a supporter of the
Communist Party, so you know he was not religious. In Oak Harbor, good
churchgoing people would not want to be seen purchasing beer, wine, or
spirits, so my father for several years ran a small discreet beverage
store where folks could come down and get supplied without being seen by
their friends and relatives.

Among important Dutch families in Oak Harbor were the Vander Pauls,
Zylstras, Fakkemas, and Reinstras. Henry Vander Paul was a good friend
of my father and played baseball with him. Henry went on to found the Oak
Harbor Freight Lines which is still a major trucking company in the state
of Washington. I will pass on other little nuggets of information as they
occur to me.

the above information was supplied by Ernest Heller, grandson of Martinus (EHeller@cityoflakewood.us).

Married at the age of 21 on 04-10-1886 in Cook County,Ill.,USA. Beiden woonachtig in Englewood. Spouse is Tietje KONING (Christine, Albertine), 22 years old, born on 24-05-1864 in Grijpskerk, Nederland. In verschillende geboorteakten van haar kinderen (FamilySearch) wordt als haar geboorteplaats Grijpskerk genoemd.Daar wordt op 22-5-1864 geboren Tietje Mulder als dochter van Anktje Mulder, vader onbekend. Deze Ankje Mulder trouwt op 30-5-1870 te Leens met Jeene Koning, en vermoedelijk heeft Tietje van hem de achternaam Koning verkregen,alhoewel in de huwelijksacte van dit paar geen sprake is van erkenning van Tietje.Een zoon van Tietje wordt Jene genoemd!
Deze familie Koning komt uit Tolbert/Leek en heeft als beroep vaak schoenmaker. Een broer van Jeene genaamd Hielke(*1828 Tolbert) trouwt in 1876 in Leens met de dochter Ietje/Jetje (*1856) van zijn broer Harmen Koning getrouwd met Pieterke Rosema. Voor het huwelijk van Hielke en Jetje (14-9-1876 Leens) moest "dispensatie"worden verleend.De broers Jeene, Harmen en Hielke zijn kinderen van het echtpaar Jan Harms Koning en Tietje Jakobs de Vries uit Tolbert en het ligt voor de hand dat Tietje Jakobs de Vries de bron is van de voornaam Tietje, Jetje, Ietje die veel in deze familie voorkomt. Died on 18-08-1934 in Chicago at the age of 70, buried in Mnt Greenwood Cem. Chicago. Volgens CD#269 "Dutch in America" kwamen zij als koppel aan met de "Amsterdam" op 14 Juni 1884, zij wordt dan Pietje Koning genoemd en is 19 jaar. Lorraine Robinson (kleindochter) schrijft: " Obit in Marquette Park Presbyterian Church of S. California Ave. at West 65th St. It listed 9 children preceeded her in death and the living children were: Dora(Coleman), Ann Kieserwetter, Dorothy Helder, Joseph Helder, Nicholas Helder Jr., Albert Helder, and Peter Helder". Naast de hierboven genoemde kinderen werden nog geboren James 190? (<1jaar), doodgeb.1904 (1dag), tweeling jongetjes 1906 (1 jaar).
In passagierslijst van de Amsterdam wordt zij Pietje Koning genoemd, maar in de census van 1900, 1910, en 1920 is zij resp.Katie, Albertine, Tiny.
In de Statewide Death Index van Illinois komt zij voor als Christina Helder, death date 18-8-1934. Lorraine Robinson, grand daughter of this couple writes: "This Helder family was not a very closely knit family, in fact there were years between the times brothers saw each other. So you will understand the gaps in the family history. Grandpa Helder was a very poor man, a truck gardener, whom I remember being very silent, but this may be because he had never learned to speak English very fluently. At least that is what I am assuming as I do not remember talking very much with my grandmother, although I do remember her and the odd things that she fixed me to snack on: White bread slathered with lard, maybe goose grease, and then sprinkled with sugar. She would ream the center out of carrots and then fill them with sugar. People around me think I have gone beserk when I season my sliced fresh tomatoes with sugar, but that is what my grandmother also did."
They emigrated to USA and arrived in New york at 14 June 1884 on board of the "Amsterdam". They lived according to the census reports in the period 1900-1920 at Chicago Ward 31 and later at 9100 California Avenue. Nick sold vegetables from a horsedrawn cart around 79th Street.

"Voor honderdjarige mogen er best nog een paar jaar bij"
Auteur: Angelique Rondhuis in "de Stentor" zaterdag 30 januari 2010 08:00 | Laatst bijgewerkt op: zaterdag 30 januari 2010 | 08:43
APELDOORN - Ze leest de biografie van Edith Piaf in Franse kleine lettertjes. Heeft de krant op tafel liggen. ,,Wat een boef, die Sarkozy'', duidt ze op de schoffering van de Franse president van 'onze' eurocommissaris Neelie Kroes. In niets lijkt het erop dat Margit Leiker vandaag haar honderdste verjaardag viert.
Alleen die doofheid: ,,Het doet geen pijn, maar het is wel heel lastig.''

Ze kwam honderd jaar geleden ter wereld in Hongarije, als Margit Kis.
Nu huist ze in een kamertje in de Matenhof. Daar waar ze qua leeftijd thuis is. Maar in gedachten zwerft ze nog steeds door de straten van Parijs, waar ze alleen op vakantie ging, toen haar dochter al getrouwd was. "Alleen met de trein, en ik struinde de straten af. Nooit ben ik met groepsreizen gegaan. Dan had ik op vaste tijden moeten eten en op excursie.''


Leiker is nog bijzonder helder van geest, en haar levensgeschiedenis is als een spannende roman. Ze kwam ter wereld in Boedapest en na het einde van de Eerste Wereldoorlog was er bittere armoede. De tweede vrouw van haar vader zette een pistool tegen haar hoofd om haar te kleineren, en bij haar oma bij het Balatonmeer werd ze weggehaald door haar vader, onder het mom dat ze naar school mocht in Boedapest. Drie maanden later werd ze op transport gezet, samen met honderden andere kinderen die het slecht hadden. "Onder auspiciën van Koningin Wilhelmina werden we naar Nederland gebracht'', zegt ze nu. Het Groningse oudere echtpaar waar ze terecht kwam, had een dienstertje in gedachten, die in ruil voor kost en inwoning, kon helpen in het huis. Het liep anders, hoewel Leiker haar pleegouders wel altijd heeft geholpen. "Een vriendin van mijn pleegmoeder was Anna Colijn, de zuster van de Minister-President. Zij is mijn redding, want ze zei: 'dat kind is zo slim, dat moet je laten studeren'. Dus kreeg Leiker na schooltijd les van de hoofdmeester. Naar school kon het ondervoede meisje niet, maar ze zoog alle informatie op als een spons. Haar pleegouders kochten een piano voor haar, en ze bekwaamde zich in de muziek. Op haar 19e haalde ze haar rijbewijs en toerde haar pleegouders rond in een gehuurd T-fordje.

Later trouwde ze en vertoefde ze in kunstenaarskringen. Ze schreef muziek onder gedichten die werden uitgezonden op de radio. Dirigeerde koren in de verre omtrek van Groningen en werkte een tijdje bij de Vreemdelingenpolitie, omdat ze haar talen sprak.

Maar haar huwelijk strandde, omdat haar man naar andere vrouwen keek. Een schande in die tijd. Ze verhuisde op aanraden van de huisarts naar de andere kant van het land, daar waar niemand haar, en haar dochter, kende. Ze kwam in Apeldoorn terecht omdat ze vereenzaamde en haar dochter hier al woonde. Ze heeft er wel verdriet van, dat de mensen om haar heen niet dezelfde passies delen. Het kunstenaarsmilieu is verruild voor een anonieme kamer in het verzorgingshuis. Maar levensmoe? Nee, dat nooit. Er mogen best nog een paar jaartjes bij. God heeft er vast een bedoeling mee gehad, glimlacht ze.
