Before Wobbe Jochums married he sailed with his mother,
Antje van der Werf
who was the skipper, aided by his brother Roelof Jochums.
After Wobbe Jochums got married his mother stayed on shore.
Roelof never became an indepent skipper himself.

Joukje Kooistra was listed as a maid in the household of
Pieter Willems Boorsma, shipbuilder in Oostermeer.
Pake Wobbe was baptized as "Doopsgezind",
followers of Menne Siemens ( In the U.S.A. Mennonites).
He became a member of the Dutch Reformed Church
with his marriage to Beppe Joukje.
(The descendants of his uncle Johannes Roels were still listed as
"Doopsgezind" in the censuses at the end of the 1800s.)

After his children had gone out on their own
Wobbe Jochums continued hauling freight with his skutsje
aided by his deck hand "Adolf Ede".
After his wife Joukje Kooistra
died he and Adolf made the skutsje their permanent home.
Pake Wobbe Jochums died on May 31, 1885.
Adof Ede lived aboard the skutsje in Oostermeer for another 8 years.

My grandfather "Pake Sjoerd" remembered Pake Wobbe.
He said he was tough and strong.
