Notes
a. Note:   In the 1795 Chortitza Colony Census he is listed as a recent Flemish Mennonite immigrant residing on a temporary basis in Schoenwiese (B. H. Unruh, p. 244). He is listed in the 1797 Census, but not in a specific village (P. Rempel, p. 56). In the 1801 Chortitza Colony Census he is listed at Chortitza #8. He was the District Mayor of the Chortitza Colony from 1801 to 1805 and from 1808 to 1823. Emigrated in 1793. Name found in Schoenweise records of 1795, Rosenthal records of 1797 and Chortitiza in 1802 and 1803. "Mennonite Family History" (Schapansky] July 1994 issue: "He was a late arrival of the first wave of immigrants and was placed at Schoenwiese in 1795 on a temporary basis. He was given the Schoenhorst homestead of Martin Wiebe after the death of the latter. After the arrest of Peter Hoeppner, he was given the latter's homestead at Chortitza, and gave his Schoenhorst homestead to Johann Loeppky. Peter Siemens was the first, and longest serving Oberschulze (equivalent to mayor or reeve) of the Old Colony, from 1801 to 1805, and from 1808 to 1823."
  The "Mennonite Migration to Russia: 1788 - 1828" noted that the Chortitiza records of 1797 and 1806 included the following: "Peter Siemens, settler in 1789-1790, whose family consisted of 3 males and 4 females, took over farm of Peter Hepner by 1806." (page 6) The same book, in the Rosental records of 1797 and 1806 recorded: "Peter Siemens, settled in Rosental in 1789; his family consisted of 2 males and 2 females. He had 1 house, 4 horses, 10 head of cattle, 10 sheep, 2 pigs." (page 41) "Stammbaum der Familie Siemens" (Siemens Family Tree) by Leo Siemens and Dr. U. Hoescher (Berlin and Goslar, 1910), identified Peter Siemens on page 168. My translation of the comments are as follows: "RA 1 Peter, born 1765, died 1823. Based on information from RA 15, he was born around 1760 and died in 1845, in his 86th year. Towards the end of the 18th century (1795) he emigrated to Russia from Marienburg, West Prussia. His wife was born a Klassen. He was a Master Builder (architect?). Mennonite. From around 1810 to 1823 he was the Oberschulze. During this time, he received a large silver medal from Kaiser Alexander I for the construction of a church building. The medal had a recognition band on it and was intended to be worn around the neck (latterly it is in the possession of RA 9). Ron Siemens (Bragg Creek, Alberta), in his Email of December 14, 2000, reported that the silver medallion is in California in the possession of Peter and Diane Siemens of Los Gatos.
  The son of another brother came to Russia; his first name was Gerhard."
  In the 1806 Census he is listed in Chortitza (P. Rempel, p. 6). In the Oct 1816 Census he is listed at Chortitza #6. He also owned a second homestead at Chortitza #38 in 1814 and 1816. "Mennonite Family History" (Schapansky] July 1994 issue:
  The following report seems unlikely: He reportedly also had brothers and one sister. From the brothers, one reportedly emigrated to America.
