Julius Eisses Halsema and Family

by the Halsema.org Editors

Pictured below are the children of Julius Eisses Halsema. The first photgraph is of his actual funeral card which was printed in 1870. These photos come from several sources. In particular the halsema.org editors give thank to Koos Halsema, Sister Claire Marie Halsema, Catherine (Halsema) Blajian, Rita Hoying, Julian Clement Halsema II, and last, but certainly not least, John Ketelaars for these photos.

Lambertus was the fourth child of Julius Halsema and Geziena Boerema. Lambertus and his first wife Mary Margaret Axe. She died in 1883, so the photo must be at least that old. They were married in 1870 when Lambertus would have been 32. He does not look much older in this photo than 32. She went by the name Margaret, and she is the one who taught Lambertus English. In 1870 she would have been 28. Doug Halsema has an original. Photo comes courtesy Catherine Halsema Blajian who gave us Sr. Claire Marie's copy.
