In Friesland the only candidate for your GGG grandmother seems to be:
Dirkje de Jong, born 7 august 1868
Parents: Taede Everts de Jong and Trijntje Annes Machiela
Actually on the internet the mother is named Dirkje, but this must
be a mistake. The marriage certificate of the parents says:
Marriage certificate Ferwerderadeel
Man: Taede de Jong, 25 years old, born at Blija
Parents: Evert Hayes de Jong and Gelske Gelts Koopmans
Wife: Trijntje Annes Machiela, old 24 jaar, born at
Ternaard, municipality Westdongeradeel
Parents: Anne Heerts Machiela and Dirkje Jans Faber
Datum: 19 mei 1866, akte nr. 34
So Dirkje was named after her grandmother, mothers side.
Maybe (but there is little information here), Dirkje Taedes de Jong
Marriage certificate Westdongeradeel
Man: Tjeerd Eisma
Wife: Dirkje de Jong
Datum: 17 mei 1890, akte nr. 24
Trijntje Annes Machiela died April 23, 1925, 83 years old.
Does this ring any bells?
