    History Martin F. Friesen apparently moved to the Crimea where he joined the K. M. B. The family moved to Gnadenau, Kansas in 1874. Johan P. Friesen has listed only the oldest five children. A couple of appropriate names and ages are shown aboard the S.S. Brooklyn with the other K. M. B. families and are assumed to be the same family. The ship records list four additional children still with the parents at that time. The youngest three were still living with their parents according to the 1880 Marion County Census.
    A definite identification is achieved through the K. M. B. Gnadenau Church Record family #87, where the parents Martin and Maria Friesen are listed with the family of daughter Helena, Mrs. Franz Hein. The Gerhard Wohlgemuth family moved from the Crimea to Gnadenau in 1874. They are listed as family #88 in the K. M. B. Church Record which also bears the notation that this family went over to the Baptists.
    A Johan and Abram Friesen of appropriate ages are listed in the 1880 Marion County Census and are assumed to be the sons of Martin (b. 1823). According to the K. M. B. Record Book, daughter Helena and son Jacob and their families moved to Colorado.  [3
