HSC370 - Family History F267:


Gerrit and Caroline (Ver Ploegh) Hulstein lived in the rural Carmel area all of their family life. They were farmers and lived on the same farm where they raised their children.

Standard of transportation, horse and buggy, kept the family in the common small realm of rural environment with school, church life and farm work.
Gerrit was born Jan. 3, 1861, to Cornelius Hulstein and Rykje (Van Roekel). He married "Caroline" Cornelia Ver Ploeg, born in 1869, daughter of Conrad Ver Ploegh.

Gerrit liked to "break in" wild horses in the fall and sell them in the spring. Horses were the "horse power" used in all the farming operation. He was a very able gentleman and loved handling animals. The family had a large garden and orchard. A peddle wagon from the Carmel store would come around to sell the groceries that were not produced on the farm. Their first car was purchased about 1917.

Gerrit and Caroline Hulstein retired in Sioux Center and became members of the Central Reformed Church. Gerrit died in 1934 and Caroline died in 1940. They are buried in the Sioux Center Cemetery.

Mrs. A. Van. Drimmelen passed away very suddenly at her home at about 10:35 o'clock Thursday morning, Nov. 14. She had passed her 71st birthday.

Mrs. A. Van Drimmelen, daughter of Koenrad Verploeg and Petertje de Kock was born south of Pella, Iowa on March 9, 1869. The family moved to Sioux County about 1875.

In 1886 she married Gerrit Hulstein and settled on a fram 1 miles north and west of Sioux Center. Mr. Hulstein died Jan 25, 1934. 9 children were born - all left to mourn the loss of a devoted and loving mother.

On March 5, 1938 she married A. Van Drimmelen who is now left to mourn.

The Lord has given, The Lord has taken, blessed be the name of the Lord. Our loss is her gain. She was a devout Christian woman, always wanted to do something for other people never asking for anything, happy in the thought that she had a desire to do some thing for her Saviour Christ Jesus.

So - Let us think of her faning on as dear. In the love of there as the love of Here; Think of her still as the same today; She is not dead - She is just away.

Funeral services where held Monday afternoon, Nov. 18 at her home at one o'clock and at 1:30 o'clock at the Central Reformed Church with Rev. .R. D. Meengs her pastor in charge. Interment was in Sioux Center cemetery.
