    History One record says he was born in 1816. One record gives his parents as Heinrich Flaming and Elisabeth Koehn, but this creates a real problem, since a record for another Andreas Flaming, also born 1816, also gives these two as parents! This Andreas and Andreas #2681 may be confused, and placed with the wrong parents. Further research is needed! This Andreas Flaming was a member of the Margenau Church in Russia. He was residing in Kleefeld in 1858 and 1862 per the Molotschna school registers.

    He was residing in Kleefeld in 1858 and 1862 per the Molotschna school registers. Roy E. Neufeldt's book "Unser Stammbaum" has the wrong Heinrich Flaming associated with the Andreas in his family tree. Roy gives this account of Andreas: Andreas was married to Maria Voth. "Andreas Flaming remarried to Margaritha Enns Neufeld on July 10, 1879, she died in 1899, they had lived for their 18 years of marriage in Mountain Lake, Minnesota. Maria Voth's father was Franz Voth born in 1974 in Prussia, he married in 1821 and died in 1877 in Kleefeld, Russia. Maria Voth's mother was Eva Nickel, born in 1790 and died in 1839 (probably in Kleefeld). Andreas and Maria (Voth) Flaming lived in their younger years in the village of Mariental, Russia and later moved to Kleefeld, where they lived until they moved to the United States in June of 1877. They went by train to Antrwerp where they boarded the S.S. Vaderland with about 600 other Mennonites from Russia. They departed Antwerp on June 15, and arrived in Philadelphia on June 29, 1887 and then by train to Mountain Lake. Their names and ages as given on the passenger list: Flaming, Andreas (62) farmer, Maria (54), Henry (23) farmer, Pauline (18), Sarah (17), Susanne (15), Elizabeth (15) and Flaming, Franz (33) farmer, Margaret (29), Maria (6), Margaret (12).
    On the passenger list for the S.S. Strassburg, the same list that had the Voths on it, there was listed a Diedrich and Anna Thiessen with their daughter Anna and I believe this Mrs. Thiessen was Anna Flaming, another of the daughters of Andreas and Maria. This leaves several of Andreas' daughters unaccounted for, but we know they all came to America and probably at the same time that their folks came, I do not know who they were married to so could not identify them on the passenger list."
    (Roy spells "Andreas" two ways.)
