Title: 1816 Chortitza Colony Census (October, 1816)
Title: Niebuhr, Jacob (b. 4 May 1862); listing of births and deaths attached to his diary.
Text: Listing created in 1915 of births and deaths and found attached to his diary; extraction of this information created by Herman and Annie Sawatzky, 1196 East 53 Ave., Vancouver, B. C.; copy in the possession of Tim Janzen (b. 3 Dec 1960) and atthe Mennoni
Note: He is likely the Herman Neufeld listed as a worker with the family of Johann Siemens #159474 at Rosenthal #20 in the 1802 Chortitza Census. In the 1808 Census he is listed as an apprentice with the family of Karl Jaeger #198860 in Rosenthal (B. H. Unruh, p. 265). In the 1814 Chortitza Census he is listed in Kronsthal among the landless (B. H. Unruh, p. 285). In the Oct 1816 Chortitza Colony Census he is listed at Kronsthal #7 in the household of Peter Braun (b. 2 Oct 1787) #197212. Herman and Katharina, Their Story, p. 6 and p. 220, states that he immigrated to Russia in 1810 with his younger brother Abraham from East Prussia. However, it seems probable that he actually immigrated prior to 1810. This source also gives his parents as Johann Neufeld (b. 1772) and Anna of Ellerwald, Prussia, who reported immigrated to Russia in 1790.
Christof Niebuhr Family book says he was the son of Hermann Neufeld and Margareta Wall and gives birthdate as 1807. This Herman Neufeld #98180 is said to have died young. Clarification is needed.
According to Peter Neudorf, who has translated over 60 letters written by Cornelius A. Neufeld beginning in 1890, the brothers Neufeld, sons of Johann migrated to Russia from East Prussia.
