    History Abraham F. Reimer (1808 - 1892) married Helena Rempel (1814 - 1893) on Thursday, 26 February 1835. Verlobung was held one week prior on 19 February 1835. The family presumably lived for the first year with his parents on Wirtschaft #4, in Petershagen, West Prussia. On Tuesday, 10 May 1836, the family moved to Rosenort, Molotschna Colony, where they resided for many years. In 1864, the Abraham Reimers moved to Markuslandt together with sons Klaas and Abraham, and from there they moved to Steinbach, Borozenko. In 1874, they emigrated from Russia, settling in Blumenort, Manitoba.
    Abraham F. Reimer did not share the financial acumen of his brother Klaas, and was more interested in astronomy and other intellectual pursuits. His diaries and journals are filled with all manner of observations, calculations, facts and figures. Fortunately for the family, his wife Helena was a resolute pioneer woman of great determination, who earned much of the family income as a seamstress. The family also received considerable financial assistance from the Gemeinde.

    In the 1835 census, he is listed at Petershagen #4, the home of his father. There is not mention there of a wife, so I wonder if he was married at the time of the census. He was known as "Fuela" Reimer. From the 1857/58 Kleefeld, Molotschna student registers, he seems to have been in Kleefeld by that time. Birth places shown here on some children may not be accurate.  [2
