Mrs. Veefkind was born in 1837 in Leiden (Netherlands) as Marie Clasine Reijst. She was the daughter of a pharmacist and probably from mothers side a grandchild of Jacob Cats. Her husband was Hendrik Nicolaas Veefkind, born in Leiden October 3d 1834. Because his mother was Christina Wilhelmina Born, he sometimes used his mothers familyname as Henry Born Veefkind. They married in Leiden September 7th in 1859. They had 8 children, all born in Leiden. Two of these children died young, before the family left for Wisconsin (except Christina Wilhelmina Krak-Veefkind).
