    History He was the Aeltester of the Chortitza Mennonite Church from 1851 to 1853 (The Old Colony, p. 121). After his death his stepmother Barbara (Siemens) Wiens was given 465 taler in Prussia on 28 Nov 1853 as the inheritance from the estate of Franz Wiens' parents Peter Wiens and Anna Dick to be held in guardianship for Franz Wiens' daughter Maria per Odessa Archive, Fund 6, Inventory 3, File 15577. Franz Wiens' brother Jacob Wiens and Jacob Bartsch were to serve as guardians for Maria Wiens. His death date is given as 14 Nov 1853 and his age at the time of death is given as 43 years, 29 days, in the Jacob Wall diary. This would suggest he was born about 16 Oct 1810 (old style) or 4 Oct 1810 (new style) if he died 14 Nov 1853. If he died 16 Nov 1853 as B.H. Unruh states on p. 358 then his birth date would have been about 18 Oct 1810 (old style) or 6 Oct 1810 (new style). Schapansky, Henry; The Old Colony (Chortitza) of Russia, p. 121 says he was born in 1809.
