JOHANNA WALVOORD known as “Jane” was born on December 21, 1849 in Amsterdam, Wisconsin. She was the second child and oldest daughter of Gerrit Jan and Anna Maria Engel (Nolten) Walvoord. Jane was only 6 1/2 – years-old at the time of her father’s drowning in Lake Michigan. Jane was described as dark, very emotional, and quick to act. She died on April 30, 1935 in Lime Springs, Howard, Iowa, United States.

She married ROELOF HOOPMAN known as “Ralph” on March 19, 1868 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. He was born on September 21, 1846 in Lintelo, Aalten, Gelderland, Netherlands. He died on September 14, 1915 in Lime Springs, Howard, Iowa, United States.

They inherited forty acres from Jane’s grandfather Hendrik Walvoord. They sold the farm and moved to Lime Springs, Iowa, and lived on another farm there.

They had ten sons and no daughters. Their sons were (in order of birth): Garrett, Ed, Henry, Will, John, Herman, Ray, Fred, Louis and Walter.

Walter, the youngest, stayed on the old homestead in Lime Springs. Fred was the first to pass away—an adult but still young. The older boys were great game hunters. They shot wild rabbits, squirrels, partridges and prairie chickens. Fred Walvoord (Henry’s son) visited the Hoopman family one winter and sent home a box of prairie chickens and other game. He also stuffed some of the specimens.

Jane and Ralph Hoopman visited the Henry Walvoord family while Henry was living on the farm at Amsterdam. Jane also came for her mother’s (Anna Maria’s) funeral.
