Geisje Vander Haar Visscher's diary contains an entry on page 13, in which she made a reference to both Albertus C. Van Raalte and to Mrs. Christina Van Raalte. An entry for 1849 on p. 10 said that the Van Raaltes often came to visit the Vander Haars. The 1856 reference is about the "High School" and bringing it into a better condition. This is a reference to the Pioneer School. She also said Mr. Van Vleck had come to the school. She thought that Mrs. Van Vleck was a lovely person. The Vander Haar apparently got to know the Van Vlecks well.
