    History Supposedly a Prussian General instrumental in bringing the 30 Years war to a close. Apparently converted to pacifism, he was baptized at age 92 (in 1693) by the Mennonite Pastor Georg Hansen. There apparently used to be an equestrian statue in his honor in the Danzig area. One story has it that he married three sisters. He died at age 104. (Wilma Ewert Leichty has a reference from her father saying the statue was in Elbing and that it was Michael's son Karl who married three Steingart sisters, and not his father Michael who married three sisters). It is the Ewert record that is in this computer file. (H.H. Neufeld, of Winkler, Manitoba. and whose wife was a Loewen, had the "story" about the first Michael Loewen. It was copied by J.F. Friesen, of Acme, Alberta, which, in turn, was copied by H.S. Ewert, Mt. Lake, Minnesota in his genealogy).
