    History Abraham L. Friesen was the son of Jacob W. Friesen (1808 - 1889) and Aganetha Löpp. He married Anna Dueck in 1853 and settled in Tiege, Molotschna. Later they moved to Heuboden, Borozenko. A. L. Friesen was elected into the ministry in 1864, and when a group of Kleine Gemeinde separated from the remainder of Johan Friesen's group, he was elected as aeltester. In 1874, he led approximately 35 Kleine Gemeinde families to Jansen, Nebraska. Two daughters were born to the Friesens, but both died at a young age. Subsequently, they fostered the following children: Anna Wiens (1847 - ), Cornelius Wiebe (1854 - ), Aganetha Friesen ( 1860 - ), Gerhard Friesen ( 1862 - ), Margaretha Giesbrecht ( 1852 - ), and Johan E. Friesen ( 1884 - ).
    About six months after the death of his wife, Anna, Aeltester Friesen married the widow Helena Friesen of Steinbach, Manitoba and Jansen, Nebraska. She was the widow of Heinrich B. Friesen. The Friesens moved with the rest of the Kleine Gemeinde to Meade, Kansas in the early 1900's.  [4
