After marriage, Gerrit continued speaking Dutch with his wife and children. The family moved around a lot, living in different cities in Illinois in, at least, 1910, 1917, 1930, and 1942 while in 1920 he was in Minnesota. He worked as a farmer for much of his life, although during World War II he was working for Crown Steel Sales.
