Searching for Parents of Abram Hiebert

I am searching for the parents of Abram Hiebert Born May 2,1801 and Died May 5, 1877
His son Jacob Hiebert (b.Oct 22, 1833 d.June 1,1906) was married to Aganetha Dick (d.Dec.4,1874). Abram is my Great Great Great Grandfather. I have a fair amount of information but not too much with actual names.

My relatives came from Holland in 1562 and settled around the Vistula River. The moved from this area (first Poland later Prussia) at the invitation of Catherine II and settled in Russia on the Chortitza River in two groups..1788 & 1789.

They were members of the Bergthal Colony and at one point it was decided that some of the colony would strike out for Canada and they arrived here in 1875 eventually settling in Manitoba.

I have more information if anyone is interested but would really be interested in in the time period before the 1840's.

Thank you
Sandy Johnson
