Zutphen

After a little checking I think that Zutpen, Holland mentioned by Henry Wickers on the 1895 Census is actually Zutphen, Gelderland, Netherlands.  It is in the province directly south-bordering Overijssel, where the Van de Riets are from.  The wikipedia links are nice because they also pronounce the words for you!  Overijssel sounds like Over-ay'-sel with the r rolled a bit.
