Ok, I'll be the first to post. I'd love to trace back the Spitsbergen line. I have found something on the web about the cemetery and people transcribing the name as Spitzbergen, too. In any case, my ancestor is Mae Spitsbergen, born around 1882 (had an older sister born in 1881 as well as 8 other brothers and sisters). Mae's parents were Henry Spitsbergen, born in Michigan about 1856 (both parents from Holland) and Margaret/Maggie Modders (daughter of Wynand Modders, after whom Moddersville, MI was named, and Dirkje _______, both born in the 1830's.)
From what I can tell, Henry was living with the Modders, working for them on their farm, before he married Margaret. They were not married at the time the 1880 census was done, but they did have a child in 1881, so were perhaps already engaged at that point.
