Note: He was a minister. Karlswalder-South Dakota p. 61 gives a birthdate of 7 Mar. David D. Tieszen p. 33: "In 1890 he was elected minister of the Bethesda Church near Marion, S. Dak., and in 1894 he was elected as Elder and ordained by Rev. Peter Friesen of Henderson, Neb. and Rev. Christian Kaufman of Marion, S. Dak. About 10 years later he was afflicted with serious eye trouble. This slowly grew worse and for some years he was totally blind. But due to his good memory and clear thinking he continued to serve until the age of 80. He received no remuneration during his entire term of service which was 49 years. They resided about 3 miles west of Marion. S. Dak., on a farm."
