    History Johann F. Friesen (1808 - 1872) was married four times. His second marriage to Maria Enns, the daughter of Aeltester Heinrich Enns, lasted only 30 weeks. His third wife was Elisabeth Klassen, the daughter of David Klassen who served as one of the delegates to America in 1873. Johann Friesen lived in the village of Neukirch and later moved to Rosenfeld, Borozenko.
    Johann was elected as a minister in the Kleine Gemeinde in 1840 and as the Aeltester to replace uncle Abraham Friesen in 1847. In this office Johann Friesen played a prominent role in the resolution of the "Church Building" dispute and "Barley" dispute which had caused great disruption in the Molotschna Community. He led the Kleine Gemeinde through a period of considerable growth, but his authority was diminished by the 1866 division.
    His son, Johann K. Friesen, was a minister in the Scratching River Kleine Gemeinde in Manitoba, Canada.  [2
