      Biography as appears on Find A Grave, author unknown:
      "Lena Vermaat was born August 17, 1848 in Geervliet, Zuid Holland, Netherlands. She was the daughter of Teunis Vermaat and Elisabeth van der Linden. Lena married Pieter Maris on May 20, 1870 in Geervliet. 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. When Pieter went to live in Texas, Lena spent some time living with her daughters in the Edgerton area and then moved to Montana and spent her last years living with her son John. Lena was remembered as being a stern and unfriendly woman and was very unpleasant to be around."
