    History Old style birth date 26 May 1832. Beatrice MF CHR 11 p. 18: "Eingewandert von Sued Russland, niedergelasen Jefferson Co bei Fairbury. Kirchenattest von Bernhard Harder, NeuHalbstadt vom 1875. Oktbr. 4." "Vorstehende Familie Peter Thiessen nebst Schwiegersohn Nikolaus Friesen haben sich im Jahre 1879 wieder abgemeldet."
    One record says he died 27 July 1898 (headstone states 27th). One family record says he was first married in Schoenau, Molotschna. Birthplace is in Yamada, _Thiesen Family Update 1990_, p. 17. These were Kleine Gemeinde people.
    Joined the Halbstader church at Neuhalbstadt in 1865. Peter served there as "Kirchen-Vorsteher" for a year. Under the preaching of B. Harder, they experienced a revival in 1870 and began home devotions. However, at this time they did not tell people of their experience. Economically, the Thiessens seem to have prospered. They built a large house in Neuhalbstadt and owned a flour mill and an iron and lumber business. In 1880, they describe a revival experience as "a train coming from heaven," and they were rebaptized by immersion and joined the Krimer Mennonite Church. Peter was elected into the ministry of the KMB church in 1881 and served in this office till his death. In 1883, he made an extended trip back to Russia to relate to relatives and friends the new found joy he had experienced. In their old age, they sold their farm and built a small house on their children's yard. Plett book (111).
