You may already have this but what I have on the John D. Hiebert family is:
John D. Hiebert b. 24 Feb. 1842 married 8 March 1869 died on 9 June 1936. He married Katherien Friesen who was born 20 march 1849 and died 18 Dec. 1893. They had:
1. John b. 19 Dec. 1869
2. Helena b. 7 Jan. 1872
3. Aganetha b. 5 Sept. 1873
4. Katherine b. 20 July6 1875
5. Agatha b. 20 Aug. 1877
6. Jacob b. 20 Jan. 1880
7. Peter - possibly died as infant
8. Anna b. 20 Aub. 1882
9. Margaret b. 19 Oct. 1884
10. Maria - possibly died as infant
11. Maria b. 19 Oct. 1887
12. Gerhard b. 10 Feb. 1890
13. Elizabeth - possibly died as infant
All the above were born in Russia
14. Herman b. 10 Aug 1893 married Susana Wiens on 1 Jan. 1895
15. Margaret b. 19 Oct. 1884 married George Kroeker on 23 March 1903. They had:
John H., Henry H, Bertha, Paul H., Dan H.
16. Herman married Katherine Thesman. They had: a daughter and Alvin.

The John D. Hiebert family as well as the George Kroeker family attended the North Enid Mennonite Brethren Church. John D. Hiebert was elected minister and leader of this church on January 16, 1905. Apparently he served the church in this capacity until 1912 when the Hieberts moved to Inola, Oklahoma but returned to Enid later.
From 1905 to 1912 the Enid church grew rapidly and a new church building was erected. The new building was dedicatedon Nov. 19, 1911. Rev. Adrian and Rev. John Foth from Kansas conducted the dedication service.
After their retirement the John Hieberts lived in the home of their children, the George Kroekers. Uncle John always enjoyed sharing the scriptures and he was also a good historian and it was his delight to share the history of the German people. (I think this is meant to say Mennonite people)
This was written by Herman Hiebert, nephew of John D. Hiebert.

Perhaps this will help.
