    History Ron Froese (b. 28 Dec 1955) says that Nicholas Thiessen and his wife were travelling in a horse and buggy from their village to the home of their daughter Margaret on 23 Sep 1919 when they were attacked by a band of Machno bandits. Nicholas Thiessen was beaten to death and his wife Elizabeth's throat was slit. Elizabeth apparently survived the attack, but died several days later.
