Shortly after their marriage, the couple moved to Blumenstein, Molotschna Colony, where he served for some time as Schulz. Later they moved to Heuboden in Borozenko, and then to Jansen, Nebraska in 1874. Mrs. Jacob W. Friesen also served as a midwife.
    Son Abraham raised five foster children and was elected Aeltester of the Heuboden Kleine Gemeinde in 1869. Cornelius was elected minister in 1869 and also served as a school teacher in Russia. Son Peter L. Friesen died in Berlin en route to America in 1874. Son Heinrich L. Friesen settled in Rosenort, Manitoba. He was a short man about 5' 6".
