    Gender Male 
    Baptism Abt 1784 
    History He migrated from Prussia to Chortitza, Chortitza Colony, South Russia in 1789 (P. Rempel, p. 7). In the 1795 Chortitza Colony Census he is listed at Chortitza #26 (B.H. Unruh, p. 238) and in the 1801 Census he is listed at Rosenthal #41. In the 1806 Census he is listed in Chortitza (P. Rempel, p. 7) and in the Oct 1816 Census he is listed at Chortitza #24. It seems probable that the homestead where he was listed in the 1801 Census (Rosenthal #41) was the same homestead he was living at when the other censuses were taken and that the fact that he was listed at Rosenthal #41 in 1801 was likely the result of confusion as to whether his homestead belonged in Chortitza or in Rosenthal at that time. He is likely the Peter Martens listed with the immigrants to the Chortitza Colony in 1818 in B.H. Unruh, p. 218. Perhaps he went back to Prussia to help assist the rest of the immigrants with the journey. He was a weaver.
