Parents

Family: Mary Schadrie (b. January 1, 1874, d. May 25, 1928)

Biography

  • Birth: John Verhaagh was born on March 27, 1867 in Sevenum, Limburg, Netherlands.
  • Marriage: He and Mary Schadrie were married on April 17, 1894.
  • Death: John Verhaagh died on May 23, 1929, at age 62.
  • Burial: He was buried in Holy Martyrs of Gorcum Cemetery, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
  • Note: John immigrated from The Netherlands, traveling on the steamer "Spaarndam", leaving Rotterdam 2 April 1890, arriving in New York 15 April 1890. Mary immigrated from the Netherlands with her mother and stepfather at the age of 7, on board the steamer "Castor", leaving the port of Amsterdam 22 September 1881 for New York. John filed a petition for Naturalization in the Circuit Court of Brown County on 15 October 1913 and was sworn in as a United States Citizen 16 May 1914. The John Verhaagh family were members of the Holy Martyrs Church, or "The Fingers Church" as it is commonly called because of its location outside Green Bay, Wisc. An Electric Bell System was donated in 1962 to this Church by the family of Mrs. Roland Dury (Mary Petronella Verhaagh) in Memory of her parents John Verhaagh and Mary Schadrie (Schatorje), pioneer parishioners of Holy Martyrs. What is unique is that this area was and still is a Flemish Settlement. Inquiries by the younger generation how they ended up in a Belgian settlement were answered: "don't worry, Pa could hold his own with them any day". He understood them and they could converse in their colloquial language. So the younger generation best friends were Flemish. They attended all the Kermises and dances and enjoyed the beer and pie so wellknown to their common culture. The first generation Verhaagh's were all working hard to make a mark for themselves. But on Sundays they all found the time for visiting and exchanging their experiences. One thing they inherited from their ancesters in the old country. They got together to play cards. Each weekend it was somebodies turn to call the game. Just friendly stuff for pennies only. But many of them still fondly remember the family gatherings.

She was born June 30, 1909 in Preble to the late John and Mary Ver Haagh. She married Roland Frank Dury on November 5, 1945. He died in an industrial accident at Charmin Paper Co. in 1962.

    Before her marriage, Mary had been employed at Charmin Paper Mill for about 17 years. She served in the St Vincent Hospital Auxiliary for many years and was primarily involved in delivering mail to the patients. She was also an active member of St. Patrick parish.

    She was one of 14 brothers and sisters who with their spouses loved to play cards especially, Schaffkopf, at least once a month. All of the family would gather at a sibling's home to celebrate, tell stories and enjoy each others company.

    Mary loved to organize family reunions at her home next to Seymour Park in Green Bay. All the siblings and their children would come for the day to enjoy each others company and to catch up on the latest family news.

    When Roland, Mary's husband, died, she donated bells to Holy Martyrs of Gorkum Church in Preble as a remembrance of him. Many people living in Preble loved to hear the different bells sound at various times during the day. They would often thank Mary for her tribute to Roland because they could enjoy the bells and music that would fill the air around the church.

    Mary loved to polka and waltz at dances throughout the Green Bay area with many of her sisters and brothers. They loved to "cut the rug" as the saying goes.

    Roland and Mary traveled to Yellowstone National Park on their honeymoon. This started a love of travel and camping in the family. When her two daughters (Pat and Mary Jane) were little, the whole family would travel and camp all over the United States visiting relatives and enjoying the national parks. One of those trips took them to Glacier National Park in their 14 foot travel trailer. She loved to talk about those family trips.

    When her daughter, Pat, was married, she traveled to Europe to visit them. While there she had an opportunity to visit Sevenum, The Netherlands where her father was born. She took photos of the Ver Haagh family farm and visited relatives in Alkmaar.
