Your assumption is correct. Hendrik, Eelkjen and their children all went to America and settled in Indiana. They arrived in America on 4 August 1888 on the "S.S. Rotterdam" which sailed from Rotterdam to New York. The family, except one son who came the year before, are listed on page 2, lines 44-51 of the ship manifest.
In 1900, Hendrik was living in Elkhart Township, Elkhart County, Indiana. His name was written as Henry Nymeyer. He was a furniture finisher.
The last name of "Nymeyer" was and still is used by the family in America.
Elkhart County, Indiana is the same county where the parents of Hendrik (Arend and Truike) settled after coming in 1867.
The whole family, with stories about them, who they married, when they died, where they are buried, can be found on the following website: wwww.rootsweb.com
When you arrive at the homepage you will see "Search Rootsweb.com" and two boxes below that title. In the box that says first name, type "Hendrik" and in the box that says last name, type "Nymeyer".
You will then come to a page where it says "WorldConnect". Click on that.
You will see two people that have researched your "Nijmeyer/Nemeyer" name.
Click on the name of either one and they will give you a lot of information on the family. There is also their email address at the top of the page if you want to contact them.
If you need any help just let me know.
