Here is one possibility--

Geboorteakte Franeker, 1829
Aangiftedatum 2 november 1829, blad nr. 78
Sjoerd de Vries, geboren 31 oktober 1829
zoon van Tabe Sjoerds de Vries en Djieuwke Tjeerds Steensma

What were the names of Sjoerd and Martha's children? That can give us a hint as to their parents' names.

Was Pieter born in Friesland or US? Is his birth year of 1863 exact? If not, here are two possibilities--

Geboorteakte Ferwerderadeel, 1865
Aangiftedatum 4 september 1865, akte nr. 179
Pieter de Vries, geboren 2 september 1865
Zoon van Sjoerd Pieters de Vries en Jantje Pieters van der Ark

Geboorteakte Franeker, 1868
Aangiftedatum 28 december 1868, akte nr. 264
Pieter de Vries, geboren 25 december 1868
zoon van Sjoerd de Vries en Aukje Pieters Alkema

And what were Pieter's childrens' names. These things can help us track down the family.

Cornelia's name was probably spelled Bekhuis or Beekhuis.
