    History A document in the possesion of Olga (Klassen) Thiessen states that Johann abandoned his wife and 7 children because he was very ill. The note is somewhat unclear and it’s possible that it could relate to Johann’s father, Franz. In a letter written in 1996, Henry Sawatzky, b. 1926, lists 7 children for Johann and Helena. It appears he's corresponding with Minnie Rempel his 2nd cousin and mentions this does not agree with her records which claim there were 8 sons and 8 daughters.
    On August 13, 1839 Johann travelled from Wernersclayerfeld, Prussia to Russia with Franz Toews to visit his uncle, Gerhard Sawatzky. On the trip he was sick for 8 days. His uncle Aaron Peters came to get him and nursed him back to health.
