    History In the 1808 census, he is listed at Muensterberg #15, and is said to have come from Neustaedterwald, Prussia. He may have been born in 1739. I have not been able to locate any record of his second marriage or the birth of any of the children of his second marriage. I suspect that his second wife was from the Rosenort Church, and that his marriage occured there, and it was there he recorded the births of his later children. Those church records have been destroyed. Perhaps state church records will include some information. His age is given as 64 in the 1803 immigration lists, suggesting that he was born ca 1739 (B.H. Unruh, p. 342; P. Rempel, p. 73), but his age is given as 67 in the 1808 Census, suggesting that he was born ca 1741 (B.H. Unruh, p. 316). He must have died before Nov 1811 when the 1811 census of the Molotschna colony was taken. His unmarried children were living with his daughter Maria and her husband Johann Baergen at #15 Munsterberg. This was listed as his homestead in 1808. According to the 1776 census of Mennonites in West Prussia, he was living in Schoeneberg with his wife and one son. He was listed as an "Arbeiter" (labourer). He is not found in that village in the 1772 census of West Prussia.
