Todd I have been in contact with a gentleman in Holland that is working on the Wiersema family. This was the latest information that he had sent me:
My research in Groninger archive yesterday gave the following results:
1. Klaas Wiersema and Trientje Pieters Zuidema married Okt. 1, 1852
in the municipality of Eenrum.
2. Klaas Wiersema was the son of Jan Jacobs Wiersema, farmer, living
in Pieterburen, born in Wierhuizen, May 1789.
Jan Jacobs Wiersema married Grietje Jacobs on May 7, 1812 in
Eenrum. Grietje Jacobs was baptized Jan. 6, 1790 in Pieterburen.
At the moment she was baptized she didn't have a family name.
In 1811 everybody was obliged to have a family name and Grietje
Jacobs and family accepted the name Sikkema.
3. Jan Jacobs Wiersema was the son of Jacob Garmts and Martje
Geutjes; both didn't have a familyname yet.
Grietje Jacobs was the daughter of Hendrikje Hendriks and
Jacob Tonnis.Jacob Garmts died before May 7, 1812 in Pieterburen.
All for now, Arie
