Biography

Broer Baukes Haagsma was born on 16 May 1831 in Schraard, Wonseradeel. He and Mina Schmithe were married on 8 November 1866 in St Louis, Missouri.
Achternaam Haagsma
Voornamen Broer Boukes
Haagsma, Broer Boukes (1831-) Lotgevallen van den heer O. H. Bonnema en zijne togtgenoten, op reis uit Friesland naar de Vereenigde Staten van Noord-Amerika
Harlingen, [1853], 40 p.

In 1853, a group of Frisians settled in New Amsterdam, Holland Township, Lac Crosse County. It was said that the bottomlands along the Mississippi River reminded them of their homeland. They came to America for economic reasons and were led by Oepke H. Bonnema, a wealthy grain dealer who was determined to help his needy friends and neighbors emigrate to America. He was assisted by Broer Baker Haagsma, a school teacher. On February 26, 1855, a group of ninety-two Dutch emigrants left Harlingen for England. They traveled by train to Liverpool, where on March 23rd they boarded a ship bound for America. They suffered a shipwreck in the Bahama Islands and finally arrived in New Orleans on June 9. They sailed up the Mississippi River, arriving in St. Louis on June 12. They continued up the river, stopping at Davenport, Iowa, and Galena, Illinois. From there they traveled to Minnesota and on to Prairie La Crosse, where they arrived on July 1. By November 15, 1853, they had built five frame houses in a settlement they called Frisia but later named New Amsterdam. Among the early settlers were Bonnema and Haagsma.

Het schip waar me ze voeren ""William and Mary"" leed schipbreuk bij de Bahama eilanden.

The Captain of the William and Mary was Spinson. It left Liverpool on March 22,1853
with 81 passengers of Dutch birth, six of whom remained at Liverpool. Their leader was
O.E.Bonnema. Also aboard were 176 Irishmen. The Irish names were not included in the
list I found but I will try to locate them and add them at a later time.

The William and Mary was shipwrecked near Nassau in the Bahamas on Isaac Rock.
The Passengers were deserted and left for dead by the Captain and crew. The Passengers
were rescued by a group of Blacks who also collected money for them to continue on to
New Orleans. When the group arrived at New Orleans on June 11,1853 they found that
the Captain and crew had preceded them and falsely reported that “all were lost at sea”.
Eleven passengers were lost at sea before the shipwreck but that was due to sickness.
From New Orleans they went on to Wisconsin and Michigan.
