Note: Johann Neufeld [Jr.] was likely a son of Johann Neufeld [Sr.] who died sometime before 1776. Widow Neufeld is in the 1776 Konsignations Listen (census reports) at Pitzkendorf, Prussia, she had 3 sons and 1 daughter. Johann was a member in the Ladekopp Mennonite Gemeinde and a brother of Gerhard Neufeld born in 1755.
"Johann Neufeld gave his Chortitza homestead to another Johann Neufeld. Apparently he received a Rosenthal homestead which was given to his niece's husband Johann Siemens after his death." - from July 1992 article by Henry Schapansky. Alt POB Ellerwald, Prussia,
There is a problem here with the birth date of the oldest son. Father Johann was too young if he was actually born in 1772. Their Story p. 220: residence: "Ellerwald, Elbing, East Prussia to Russia 1790 Taurien" GRANDMA 3 gives his birthdate as 1772 and then adds a note that this is problematic. Using Eleanor Schartner's date of before 1765 is more likely. He may have been born in Lakendorf.
In the 1795 Chortitza Colony Census he is listed at Chortitza #7 (B. H. Unruh, p. 237). He later lived in Rosenthal. He gave his Chortitza homestead to another Johann Neufeld so that he could receive a Rosenthal homestead which was given to his niece's husband Johann Siemens after the latter's death (B. H. Unruh, p. 247; The Old Colony, p. 339). He had likely died by 1797 as he isn't listed in the 1797 or 1801 Censuses. Henry Schapansky believes that he may have been the son of a Johann Neufeld whose widow is listed in the 1776 W. Prussia Census in Pietzkendorf with 3 sons and 1 daughter and that he may have been the brother of Gerhard Neufeld (b. ca 1755) #159471 (The Old Colony, p. 339).
He migrated from Prussia to the Chortitza Colony, S. Russia in 1796 (B. H. Unruh, p. 302). He may be the Johann Neufeld listed in the 1797 Chortitza Colony Census in Schoenhorst (P. Rempel, p. 46). Henry Schapansky believes that he may have been the son of Hermann Neufeld of Lakendorf, Prussia (The Old Colony, p. 388). It is speculative that he was the Johann Neufeld who was baptized in 1783 in Tiegenhagen and it is possible that he was a different Johann Neufeld.
