History

However, an alternative explanation was their opposition to modern scientific and social advances, such as contraception, vaccination, insurance, chemical fertilizers, and their failure to thrive in their home province of (Zeeland (Get Moving Cost for Zeeland, MI), Netherlands).

The emigrants were led by Jannes van de Luijster, a wealthy landowner who sold his holdings in the Netherlands to advance money for the members to pay their debts and buy passage to America. Their settlement, some 16,000 acres (65 km2) of land once occupied by the Odawa people, was named after their home province of Zeeland (Get Moving Prices for Zeeland, MI).

Van de Luyster arranged for three ships to sail for the United States. He came on the first ship, arriving on June 27, 1847. He was followed by the Steketee group on July 4, and Reverend Van Der Meulen’s group on August 1 of that year. The total number of settlers was 457.
