    History His new style birth date was 4 Aug 1868.
    Autobiography - Abraham F. REMPEL I was born in South Russia on July 24, 1868. In America that would be on August 5. My parents were Gerhard Rempels. They moved with their parents to America in 1876. On the 6th of August we arrived in Fairbury, Nebraska. There we lived together with the grandparents. In 1879 my father had the misfortune of being driven over with a load of hay and in three hours he was gone. Then mother stayed with the grandparents. That was very difficult, with 8 children. Gerhard was the age of 26 years, 3 months and 24 days. Four children were left behind, they were Jacob, born June 26, 1889, Margaretha, born Jul 26, 1890, Katherina, born Sep 2, 1891, and Gerhard, born Sep 18 1892. In 1895, I was remarried to Sarah Classen. She was born on May 23, 1877. On July 27th we had a double wedding with George J. Classen and sister Aganetha. That was in our home at Jansen, Nebraska. The children were born to us, namely Abraham May 7, 1897, Heinrich, Dec 25, 1899, Isaac, Jan 13, 1902. l’d do this better. As far as we are concerned, you may rewrite this. I cannot do it in English.
