Onthe Riverside Cemetary in Kalamazoo is buried BarrentiaSCHASEMER. She died, or was buried there on 03/15/1877. I think (but I’m not sure) that she was the same person as Berendje Schansema, who emigrated in 1870 from the province Groningen in the Netherlands, together with her father, brothers and sister to the States. Berendje was born on 10/02/1856. Can someone lookup the death-certificate of Barrentia (or Berendje) and give more information ?? Does someone have more information about the Schansema family in Kalamazoo (also Shousenmer/ Shansemer / Schansemer(e) / Schasemer).
