      Biography, as appears on Find A Grave, author unknown:
      "Pieter Maris was born April 24, 1843 in Dinteloord en Prinsenland, Noord Barbant, Netherlands. He was the son of Jan Pieters Maris and Katalijna Oostdijk. He married Lena Vermaat on May 20, 1870 in Geervliet, South Holland, Netherlands. Pieter and Lena lived at the Konijndijk nr.97 in Geervliet. Pieter was a farmer in the Netherlands. In 1889, Pieter came to America and lived with Maris cousins in the Hull, Iowa area. In 1892 Lena and the children (except Elizabeth who was married and came with her husband in 1883) came to America. They settled in the Edgerton, Minnesota area and farmed for about 10 years. Around 1903, Pieter left his family and moved to Hale Center, Texas. While in Texas he sold Bibles and books, owned a ranch and raised peanuts. When he became ill in 1916, Herman and Peter Ten Cate went to Texas by train to get him. He spent the last days with the Ten Cate family. Pipestone county records show the cause of death being a cerebral hemorrahage."
