Typical classic farmhouse as seen throughout the Verden District
on the borders of the river Weser.

The couple raised the following child:

4.1. [M] (i) Bösche Seekamp was christened on Februart 12, 1669 in Bollen, Achim/Verden, Germany.

Bösche would follow in his fathers footsteps and become a farmer as well. This prompts a scenario where he inherited the farm in Bollen from his parents, just as his mother -who may have been the only child of grandpa and grandma Struckhusen- inherited it from her parents. The marriage between Beke and her boyfriend and fathers farmhand Brüne Seekamp was the only way to keep the farmhouse, the life stock and the land in the family.
