!NAME: Was given the name, Derk. He went by Dick after arriving in th e United
The surname, Dirkse, is made up of two parts: 1) the first name of th e father, Derk, and 2) the ending, se, which is the masculine form me aning "son of." The older spelling of Derk is: Derck, and thus the s urname for male offspring could be spelled Derckse in older records . Dropping the letter "c" and the spelling, "Dirk" both seem to appe ar after arrival in the United States, although these changes may hav e occurred in The Netherlands as well. The ending, je, is the femini ne form meaning "daughter of." Thus, the surname could be Dirkje o r Derkje for female offspring.

!COMMENT: The Michigan Census, of 6 June, 1894, page 244 B shows a Pi eter
Dirkse (father) and Adrianna (mother) and six children living on Fult on Street in Grand Haven. In that same household was a Dirk Dirkse , aged 17, who is listed as "home less" rather than as a son or daugh ter as are the other children. The mother, father and two oldest chi ldren had resided in the state for 13 years, as had the Dirk Dirkse m entioned above. (One of the two older children is also named Dirk) . Best guess at this time (2 Sep 1996) is that this Pieter Dirkse fa mily is the one that raised the 'home less' Dirk Dirkse. Pieter Dirk se may be either a cousin (or uncle) to the 'home less' Dirk Dirkse.
!OCCUPATION: This census also shows that Pieter and Dirk were tanners.
!IMMIGRATION: The census of 1894 indicates that Dirk Dirkse immigrate d from
'Holland' to the United States in 1881.

!COMMENT: According to information given in a letter written by Anne tte Dirkse in June 1982, Johannes Dirkse married for the second tim e after he arrived in Michigan, probably between 1881 and 1883. Hi s second wife lived in Grand Rapids, and must have lived well beyon d 1910 because Annette Dirkse, who was born in 1909, remembers meetin g her.
!COMMENT: Derk Dirkse (Dick J.) listed Minnie Kaalz as his mother o n his marriage certificate, but we do not know whether she was Johann es' first or second wife.
