Willemina and Dirk moved to America in 1911 and lived in IA until coming to Muskegon in 1922. Gram Willemina was active right up to the end. She moved her own little lawn with a push lawnmower. Did her own wash etc. with a wringer oldtime washer. Went visiting a lot. She enjoyed raising canary birds. She did very well for no schooling, in writing and speaking English. She became a citizen of the United States of America May 20, 1942 in Muskegon County-Muskegon MI. The "Grand Haven Tribune" wrote Saturday, September 21, 1974: "Ninety-Three-Year Old. Willemina van Zanten of Muskegon tried out for size the motorcycle of her son, Ben van Zanten of Fremont. She is the mother of Mrs. Berdean Stone, 19091 Palm, Spring Lake". Dit stond als onderschrift bij een foto, waarop Willemina op de motorfiets van haar zoon reed. Dirk Cornelus van Zanten en Willemina Roseboom with 4 children, Bertha, Willem, Berdean, Eliza an 5 months pregnant of Bernard sailed on the ship "Noordam" from Rotterdam, arriving at Ellis Island, NY Febr. 29, 1911. They settled in Sully, IA USA.

Willem (William) -Uncle Bill- always farmed after which he retired and moved out to the city of Muskegon. Mr. William Van Zanten, age 85, died Sunday morning, Nov. 26, 1989 at Mercy Hospital. He is survived by his wife, Hilda; his children, Patricia Beak of Grant, William and Terry Van Zanten of Newaygo; 5 grandchildren; his brothers, Dirk and Ann Van Zanten, Morris and Monica Van Zanten, all of Muskegon; his sisters, Elisabeth Fisher, Berdean Wright, Nellie Bultema, Gertrude and Fred Harjer; Kay Williams, all of Muskegon; Minnie Hinman of Arizona, His oldest Joan Diana, never married, died in 1976 at home at age 43 with cancer of female organs, precede him in death.

Berdean had sort of a hard life, tho had the most children (9). Their husband Samuel A. U. Stone was not very ambitious. He was born a 'Weeks' but can't find his real parents. People by the name Stone raised him so they always called him Stone w/o no adoption papers. Berdean divorced Samual Stone. He later died from cancer. She met Merywin Wright and got married and he too died of heart attack. Berdean is always jolly and full of laughs. (Dit schreef Eleanor).

Eliza arriveerde in de USA in 1911, vestigde zich met haar ouders in IA. Later verhuisde het gezin naar Muskegon, waarna zij in 1942 in Oceana County gingen wonen. Het echtpaar kreeg 6 kinderen.

Dirk kreeg 3 dochters? Zijn nicht Eleanor schreef: "Uncle Dick was in World War II. After he got home he stopped alog side of the road to help a stalled car. Someone came up road and pinned him between 2 cars. He lost his leg and has a wooden leg. Aunt Ann is VERY religious with her own pentacostal church in her own basement. Tho... she never pushes her religion to others. Uncle Dick had a drinking problem for years, but is fine now. He retired from Continental Motors (making engine parts). They have a beautiful home in Roosevelt Park in Muskegon. Nice happy people! He has sugar diabetes also."
De nicht Eleanor van Morris schreef ons op 3 augustus 1992 het volgende: "Uncle Morry is doing well after he had heart surgery 4-5 years ago. He found aunt Rose dead in her bed at age 50 as heart trouble. He married Monica. Who Gramp van Zanten helped do chores for x where he fell and broke hip. Monica lost her husband, then found Morris by car incident and they got married. Uncle Morry worked for Howmet Corporation. Left to policeman and such a dangerous job. Quit and returned to the factory where he retired in 1988."
