 Hermina Koop was born in Nordhorn, Hanover, Germany, June 11, 1842 and died May 30, 1918, aged 75 years. 11 months and 20 days.  She emigrated to the United States, landing at the port of New York on September 14, 1864.
  She was united in marriage to Henry Busman February 7, 1865, at Piqua, Ohio.  To this union were born seven children, six of whom survive her, August H., Gert, Mrs. Wm. Laug and Mrs. C.E. Jackson of Coopersville, Herman of Omaha Neb. and Mrs. A VanAnRooy of Holland Mich.  Her youngest daughter, Hattie, died June 21, 1899, at the age of eighteen years.
  In November 1867, with her husband and two children, she moved from Piqua O to Coopersville, where they located on a timbered tract of land one-half mile south of the village and proceeded to hew a home out of the wilderness for themselves, enduring all the hardships of the pioneer life. 
  Her husband died November 29, 1885, leaving her with seven children to face the responsibilities of life.  She assumed this responsibility without any complaint.
   She was confirmed in full membership in the Reformed Church in Nordhorn, Hanover, Germany, April 12, 1863 and united with the Reformed Church of Polkton township shortly after coming to Coopersville, remaining a staunch supporter of the church when it was removed to Coopersville, where she has been a constant worshipper until her death.  She was loving mother, of gentle disposition, with a sweet Christian character.
  Funeral services were held in the Reformed Church Saturday afternoon, June 1, 1918.  Rev. A. De Young officiating, taking for his text the words found in Heb. 4:9.
