    History He left Bohnsack, Prussia on Easter Day, 1788, to immigrate to Russia. He went with one of the earliest groups to go to the Chortitza Colony (Author unknown, n.d., p. 1). In the 1793 Chortitza Colony Heads of Households List he is listed in Einlage, Chortitza Colony, and is listed at Einlage #40 in the 1795 Census (B.H. Unruh, p. 211, 240). In the 1797 Census he is listed in Einlage (P. Rempel, p. 14). Sometime between 1797 and 1801 he exchanged his homestead in Einlage for Johann Neufeld's (b. ca 1768) #266381 homestead at Rosenthal #24 (B.H. Unruh, p. 251, 252) where he is listed in the 1801 and 1802 Censuses. Wilhelm Rempel's (b. 1760) #155957 homestead in Einlage sometime between 1797 and 1801 (B.H. Unruh, p. 251). In the 1808 Census he is listed at Rosenthal #23 (B.H. Unruh, p. 264) and in the 1814 and Oct 1816 Censuses at Rosenthal #19. David Rempel (personal communication, 6-20-95) states he was born in 1761, but his age is given respectively as 42, 54, and 56 in the 1802, 1814 and Oct 1816 Censuses, suggesting 1760 is likely correct. One source incorrectly says he was born in 1742. Listed with him in the Oct 1816 Census was a boy named Jacob Peters (b. ca 1809), who was apparently a foster son.
