    Note
    • Immigrated to USA in 1848 with brothers Aren & Maarten Verhage. Sebastiaan and Johanna (Tanis) Verhage came to Kansas from Vriesland, MI in 1872. They bought 160 acres from Maarten Tanis (Johanna's brother), which was recorded in 1872. They paid $700.00 dollars for the land in 1873. The land later was owned and lived on by daughter Jacomijntje "Minnie" Verhage and spouse B. Franklin Peters. The Verhage's had seven children; Johannes, Richard, John, Carrie, Kate, Maarten, and Minnie. They too experienced all the hardships of those early days. There were rattlesnakes on the prairie and grey wolves that ran in packs. (Johannes) John Verhage had that experience one day when he was out on horseback and wolves took after him, but he was able to out run them. The Verhage's also experienced visits by the traveling Indians. They would set a table high with food and invite the Indians to eat, but learned that to feed an Indian it was better to give them their portion, and keep the rest of the food out of sight, for after eating what the Indians wanted, they then picked up the table, cloth and all with the food, saying "hungry papoose" or "hungry squaw" and took it all with them.
