Note: Alt YOB 1745
He was from the village of Neuteichsdorf, Prussia. In the 1776 W. Prussia census he is listed in Leske. He migrated to Fischau, Molotschna Colony in 1804 with his second wife and children. He moved to Kronsgarten, Chortitza Colony in 1811. His age is given as 64 in his 1805 emigration records suggesting that he may have been born ca 1741 (P. Rempel, p. 96).
In the 1776 W. Prussia Census he is listed in Leske (H. Penner, p. 419). He was a member of the Heubuden Gemeinde and later became a member of the Orlofferfeld Gemeinde. He migrated from Neuteichsdorf, Prussia to South Russia in 1805 with his second wife and children (P. Rempel, p. 96; B. H. Unruh, p. 347). While B. H. Unruh, p. 347 states that he immigrated to the Molotschna Colony, it appears that he never actually went there and instead settled immediately in Kronsgarten. In the 1806 Chortitza Colony Census he is listed in Kronsgarten (P. Rempel, p. 19). In the 1816 Census his family is listed at Kronsgarten #12 but he is stated to have died in 1812 (Stumpp's book The Emigration from Germany to Russia, p. 873). The ages of his family members as given in that census are as of about 1812. His age is given as 64 in his 1805 emigration records suggesting that he may have been born ca 1741 (P. Rempel, p. 96). According to the Orlofferfelde church records he transferred from the Heubuden (Flemish) to the Orlofferfelde (Frisian) church in 1783. This was due to his marriage to Catharina Spenst, who was a member of the Orlofferfelde church. According to the 1772 census of West Prussia he was a farmer living in Leske with his wife and one son under the age of 12. He owned 2.5 Morgen of land at the time. According to the 1776 census of Mennonites in West Prussia he was living in Leske with his wife, one son and 2 daughters. According to the 1789 census of Mennonite landowners in West Prussia he was living in Leske and possessed 3.5 Morgen of land as an Erbpachter (hereditary lease).
