    Notes 
    • Gerrit Jan Hommers is als weduwnaar naar Amerika vertrokken met twee kinderen en een stiefkind. Zij vertrokken in september 1847 naar New York for religieuze en economische redenen vanuit Wierden-Enter. In Enter leefde hij als een van de Afgescheidenen, een lid van de Christelijke Geroformeerde kerk en woonde op boerderij "de Keijzer". Hommers verkocht zijn boerderij, welke bestond uit: Een huis, een schuur, ca. 15 hectare bouwland en ongeveer 20 hectare hooiland. Deze bevonden zich langs de Regge. Het was dus een welgestelde familie, zodat de economische redenen niet het belangrijkst geweest zullen zijn.
