Our forefathers who left Germany to go to Russia to make a better life for themselves and their children. It is dedicated as well to our brave forefathers who left Russia to make a better life for themselves and their children in the United States. It is especially dedicated to those of our relatives who stayed in Russia and endured over fifty years exiled in prison work camps for their crime of being of German ancestry.

Many books and papers about other Volga German families and their descendants, have been published over the last fifty years, and are treasured documents for not only the serious researcher, but also those with a passing interest as well. This book is one the descendants of one Befort family that left Germany to go to Russia.While every effort has been made in this compilation to provide accurate and complete information, endeavors to aquire additional facts and details from both the United States and European sources continue. Any ommission of person (s), places, or events that deserve inclusion berein is purely unintentional.

The founders of MUNJOR were part of the largest single expedition of Unsere Leute to emigrate from Russia. Under the leadership of Bathasar BRUNGARDT 108 families left Saratov by train on July 8, 1876. Their body consisted of departures from Herzog, Obermonjou, Louis, Graf, Wittman, Marienthal, Schoenchen, and Gattung. The group separated at Eydtkuhnen, with the MUNJOR founders among these electing to sail via the Hamburg-American line. Arriving in New York, they then proceeded by train to Herzog. After remaining there several days, they repaired to a site on Big Creek a short distance north of the present village of MUNJOR. Some two months later they moved to the present townsite in Section 25, Town ship 14, Range 18 in Wheatland Township.

On November 1, 1876 an additional group came to MUNJOR. They had emigrated from Saratov on September 30 and sailed from Hamburg-American line. This body consisted of the following families

The MUNJOR settlers were poor people, as were most of the Volga-Germans in the other local settlements. Their first residences were simple sod house.
In 1876 they purchased Section 25 and organized MUNJOR Land Company. This creation lacked legal status and was succeeded by a corporate entity, the MUNJOR land and Grazing Company, which was chartered about October 11, 1882 at the suggestions of John Schyler, an advisor and benefactor for the early MUNJOR pioneers. Part of the section was surveyed by G.R. Wolf for the town site. Each lot owner was a member of the grazing use by all members. The charter provided for a 50-year life, a five-man board of directors with a president, secretary, and treasurer. The original capitalization called for $10,000 divided into 200 shares of $50 each. No interest in the company land holdings could be mortgaged, sold, or transferred without the consent of two-thirds of the membership.
From the beginning this corporate creation experienced serious difficulties. The southern half of the section was sold on August 15, 1888. Controversy became so intense it pilled over into court litigation. In January, 1899 deeds were issued for the town lots only. This company’s internal conflicts split the community into two major factions. Peace was restored only after its dissolution.
The founders wasted little time in arrangements for church services. They also prayed around a homemade cross under the open sky, but as early as 1877 succeeded in erecting a small 20 x 40 foot frame structure for church use. Rev. Fr. Valentine Sommereisen said mass in this building once a month. The Capuchins came in 1878 and have been in charge of the parish since then. Within a few years the parish added 16 feet to the original church. In 1889 this structure was replaced by the present stone church building.
TRADITIONS OBERMONJOUr in RUSSIA was founded in 1766. It was located on the valley side of the Volga, the first village north of Katherinestaadt. According to an account by Victor LEIKER, a New Jersey Journalist and a native of MUNJOR, Kansas in the AHSGR Work Paper No., 5, Feborn 1972, the town in RUSSIA was named after a Frenchman named MUNJOR, a land agent for Catherine the Great. Eventually the town had a population of 3,000. Mr. LEIKER says that a young OBERMONJOUr lad who survived Siberia and was able to visit the Volga a few years ago, wrote his uncle in Germany as follows: "I could not even find where our village had been. It is as though nature has returned the land to the plains as they once were, without a tree, or a smokestack or a road or even a rusty pipe marking the village we loved so much."
In 1876 the following families founded MUNJOR in Kansas. BEFORT; BINDER; DECHANT; DOEFLER; Eberle; ENGEL; Gabel; Graf; GROSS; Herl; HERTEL; Klaus; Korbe; KRANNAWITTER; Lieker; PFANNENSTIEL; Miller; Riedel; ROHR; Ruder; Rupp; SCHUMACHER; Schreibvogel; Stoecklein; Unrein; Urban; Wasinger; Yunker; GOETZ.
Not all of the founders of MUNJOR, Kansas came from Obermounjour in RUSSIA. Some came from Wittman, Schoenchen, Marienthal, and Herzog on the Volga. The Grabbe family came directly from Germany.
Peter LEIKER of OBERMONJOUr was ONE of the FIVE explorers who came to America in 1876 to look for a suitable place to settle.
When the settlers arrived, they were for the most part poor, and the first order of business was to build shelters for their families, which were house constructed from sod and tree saplings from Big Creek. In 1926 a model sod house was built on the campus of Ft. Hays College to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the coming of the German-RUSSIAns to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS. A lady from the east who stopped to see the sod house remarked, "Oh my Goodness, how could anyONE develop in a thing like this?" Joe Linenberger of Victoria a man 6' 3" tall and weighing about 225 lbs. overheard the remark and said,” Lady I am a specimen that grew up in ONE of these sod houses and I could crush every bONE in your body with ONE hanDIED: Contrary to what was said, these houses were fairly comfortable. The floor was bare, and in ONE of the rooms was a large stove used for baking and cooking. The interior of the house was whitewashed, and the entire house kept neat and clean.
On of the most noted characteristics about MUNJOR in America was its find church choir. Clemens Wasinger and his son Paul were directors for over 50 years. Nick J. PFANNENSTIEL whom many considered the finest TENor in ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, led the singers. He retired in Hays and in 1956, Nick and this writer compiled a book of approximately 150 German-RUSSIAn folk songs.
MUNJOR was another ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS town that was proud of its fine baseball teams through the years. There were many fine players, but let it suffice here to say that many felt John Riedel and Martin LEIKER could both have been professional ball players had they been given the opportunity.
Nick J. PFANNENSTIEL, Joe BORN PFANNENSTIEL (604 E. 15th.) had fine race horses, and did much harness racing at county fairs and other events.
Today, many of the best citizens of ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS originate from this quaint little village located 6 miles southeast of Hays on the banks of Big Creek.

This book is the end result of years of research into the origin and dispersal of the KRANNAWITTER family. This INTRODUCTION contains a brief description of the TWELVE chapters and TWO final sections of this book.
Within each chapter, in the even that any information was obtained from published material or from correspondence with official agencies, the particular source is citeDIED Much of the data used in this genealogical report was also taken from personal letters and family records; these sources, too, are duly citeDIED All of the sources used to compile this book, including those not specifically cited within the chapters, aware recorded in the bibliographic list at the end of the book.
The author wishes to express her sincere gratitude to all the people who made this report possible. Any omissions or mistakes are uninTENtional. Special care has been given to citing all the people responsible for the compilation of this work.
The members of the KRANNAWITTER, KRONEWITTer/Kronwitter/KRONEWITT/Kranewitter families that came to America from the Volga-German colonies in RUSSIA were among thousands of ethnic Germans from RUSSIA who emigrated in search of freedom from 1875 up to the time of the RUSSIAn Revolution. The variant spellings of the KRANNAWITTER surname evolved as family members who had moved to different parts of North and South America gradually lost contact with each other.
In the earliest RUSSIAn records, the name was spelled KRANNAWITTER. All the American spellings that eventually developed differed slightly from this original version. Later in this introduction, more atTENtion will be given to the subject of the dispersal of this family and different spellings that ensueDIED For the make of simplicity, in this report the surname will be referred to generically as KRANNAWITTER unless a specific family with an alternative spelling is being discusseDIED
Evidence seems to indicate, although not incontrovertibly, that the KRANNAWITTER family that migrated to the Volga colonies of RUSSIA originated in Wiesbach, a small German village in lowered Bavaria situated about 50 miles northeast of Munich. (See figure 29.) Chapter ONE of this book, WIESBACH, LOWER BAVARIA< GERMANY; THE PROBABLE PLACE OF ORIGIN OF THE VOLGA-GERMAN IMMIGRANT JOHANNES KRANNEWITTER (1731-EA. 1782), ANALYZES THE RESEARCH that led to this TENtative conclusion (Pleve 1998).
According to records contained in Catholic parish archives in Germany, Adam Kronawitter and his wife Anna _______-were parents of Michael Gronawitter (the surname was spelled differently even in the same baptismal entry.), baptized 3 MAY, 1731, at the church serving the parish of Obertrennbach, where Weisbach was locateDIED The entry stated that Adam Kronawitter was a dragONEt in the army (presumably the Bavarian army) and had been statiONEd at Mitterfels, a town about 40 miles north of Weisbach and about 20 miles east of the city of Regensburg (Mai (Dr. Paul) 1998). The Catholic archives referred to aware the only sauce of records of so early date in Germany.
Johannes Krannewitter was the name of the man who migrated from Germany to RUSSIA, as listed in the roster of the original settlers of the Volga-German colony of OBERMONJOU, where he settled in 1767. Upon arrival at the colony on AUGUST, 1767, he stated that he was 36 years of age, that he was a Catholic, that he was from Weisbach (Germany), and that he was a baker by trade. Anna _______-, his wife, was 29 years of age (Pleve 1998).
The author corresponded with the directors of the diocesan archives that house Catholic parish records were the only records kept in these towns in the early years. The only Weisbach that had records of any KRANNAWITTER (or any other similar spelling of that surname) families living in close proximity was the village mentiONEd above.
Michael Gronawitter, baptized in 1731--according to records in Weisbach, Lower Bavaria--would have been 36 in 1767, as Johannes Krannewitter indicated that he was when he settled in OBERMONJOU in 1767. In German naming practice at the time of Johannes Krannewitter's migration, men were ofTEN given TWO names and would refer to themselves in official documents by either or both of these names. It is highly plausible that Johannes and Michael were ONE and the same. Johannes Michael was a common given-name combination. Since the Catholic Church in OBERMONJOU available for that early a date, it is impossible to verify this claim using those sources (Pleve 1999). Only circumstantial evidence can be used to provide further support for the assumption that Johannes and Michael was the same person. Particularly
relevant is the fact that the information about Johannes Krannewiter's place or origin was extracted from the list of the first settlers of OBERMONJOU (PLeve 1998).
The place of origin was extracted from the list of the first settlers of OBERMONJOU (Pleve 1998). The place of origin named in this source is by and large more specific and more reliable than that listed in the other principal source of information about the early German migrants to the Volga colonies; the Ivan Kuhlberg records, which were ship passenger lists prepared in 1766 when the first-settlers list is usually the place of birth, which makes it easier to find a connection in Germany (Schmidt 1998).
At any rate, thanks to early RUSSIAn census records an unbroken line can be traced from Johannes and Anna Krannewitter to most of the families descended from theMARRIED Dr. Igor Pleve, who is on the faculty of Saratov State University and is an expert in Volga-German research, and the American Historical Society of Germans from RUSSIA (AHSGR) based in Lincoln, Nebraska, have been instrumental in providing information drawn from these early censuses. The AHSGR has published 1798 census data for OBERMONJOU and for the other Volga-German colonies (Rye 1995; Pleve 1998). Chapter TWO of this book, EARLY VOLGA-GERMAN RECORDS USED IN THIS GENEOLOGICAL REPORT, focuses on FOUR early sources that were referred to during the research process; and it summarizes the information taken from these records. Later censuses, or "revision lists" of earlier enumerations, were taken in the years 1816, 1834, and 1850 (Mai (Brent) 1998; Pleve 1998; Rye 1995; LEIKER 1999; Rupp 1999). From this RUSSIAn data and from death, census, church, family, and other records of family members who later moved to America, pedigree charts have been made fro THREE related OBERMONJOU families; KRANNAWITTER, DECHANT, and BRULL; these charts are included in Chapter TWO (See figures 1, 2, and 3).
A genealogical profile of KRANNAWITTER families living in the U.S., Canada, Argentina, RUSSIA, Kazakhstan, and Germany who aware descended from Johannes and Anna Elizabeta Krannewitter is contained in CHAPTER THREE,,AN ELEVEN-GENERATION REGISTER OF SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHANNES AND ANNA ELISABETA (SATTLER) KRANNEWITTER. This chapter consists of a computer-generated report of ELEVEN generations. All the sources used to compile this data aware included in the bibliographic list. Many of the families are traced through only a few generations.
Before discussing any more of the conTENt of the book, the author would like to present an abbreviated history of the Volga German colonies and in this way provide a historical backdrop for the benefit of the reader. The information which follows was taken from TWO excellent books writTEN about the Volga-German colonies: Wir Wollen Deutsche Bleiben, by George J. Walters, 1982; and The German Colonies on the Lower Volga, by Gottlieb Beratz, 1914, translated by Leona W. Pfeifer, Lavern J. Ripley, and Dona Reeves-Marquardt, edited by Adam Giesinger, all of whom worked in cooperation with the AHSGR (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
The ancestors of the Volga Germans were among an estimated 27, 000 Western Europeans, primarily Germans, who migrated to RUSSIA from 1764 to 1767 upon the invitation of the RUSSIAn empress Catherine II, better known as Catherine the Great. The Catholic settlement of OBERMONJOU, which was the home of all the KRANNAWITTER families that later migrated to America, was ONE of 104 Mother Colonies--32 Catholic and 72 Protestant--established by these immigrants on both sides of the lower Volga River.
OBERMONJOU was ONE of 27 colonies founded in 1766 and 1767 by Chevailer Caneau de Beauregard, a native of Switzerland who directed a French company employed by the RUSSIAn government to recruit colonists. The subdivision in which these 27 colonies were located was called the Fief de Catherine. OBERMONJOU, which was named for the French recruiting agent Otto de MUNJOR, was founded 5 MARCH, 1767, by 82 families, including 160 males and 139 females, for a total of 299 (Stump 1978). OBERMONJOU was located about 40 miles northeast of the city of Sartov and was situated on the east side, or Wiesenseite (meadow side), of the Volga River. (See figure 30.) The west side of the Volga River was known as the Bergseite (hilly side) (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
To temp the war-weary farmers, merchants, artisans, and soldiers of Germany and other European countries, Catherine the Great--a German herself--issued official edicts that offered free communal land, paid travel expenses, freedom of religion (as long as the people were Christians), freedom of self-government, and the opportunity to carry on ONE's particulate trade (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
Upon arrival in Oranienbaum, a seaport near St. Petersburg, RUSSIA, the colonists--after a difficult land and sea journey from recruiting points in Germany--received the first of many setbacks they would encounter. They were informed by the RUSSIAn Commissar Ivan Kuhlberg, who served as Catherine's official spokesman to the settlers that they would all have to become farmers, regardless of Catherine and her immediate successors. These pan-Slavic circles had grown suspicious and envious of the prosperous Volga Germans, who lost the liberty to rule themselves, to instruct their children in the German language, and to avoid conscription into the RUSSIAn army. The abrogation of these concessions prompted the Volga Germans to take advantage of an escape clause in the second of Catherine's TWO manifestos of invitations: the right to quit RUSSIA at any time after paying a tax on profits made in the empire. ONE of the destinations this time, after careful consideration and exploration by a group of scouts appointed by the colonists, was North America--specifically the fertile Great Plains of the U.S. Others chose to migrate to South America, where they settled in Brazil and Argentina (Walters 1982).
Typical of the movement was the settlement of Ellis and Rush counties in Kansas, where between THREE and FOUR thousand Catholic Volga Germans eventually locateDIED They founded the settlements of Herzog (Victoria), MUNJOR, Katherinestadt, (Catherine), Liebenthal, Schoenchen, and Pfeifer (Walters 1982).
Several KRANNAWITTER families and individuals from OBERMONJOU are known to have migrated to America. The following paragraphs detail the dates of their arrivals, their ultimate destinations, and the different spellings of the surname they utilizeDIED The number in superscript between the immigrant's given name and surname indicate the number of his or her generation of descent from Johannes Krannewitter, the original Volga-German settler. The parentheses after the immigrant's surname enclose a complete list of the names and generation numbers of each of his or her
KRANNAWITTER ancestors leading up to Johannes Krannewitter. This is same pattern will be used throughout this book--except when the type must be single-spaced, in which event brackets will enclose the number of the generation of descent. Chapter THREE, entitled AN ELEVEN-GENERATION REGISTER OF SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JAHANNES KRANNEWITTER AND ANNA ELIZABETA SATTLER, contains a complete description of each KRANNAWITTER immigrant's family.
Brothers Johannes and Raymond KRANNAWITTER both move to the U.S. albeit at different times. Johannes came to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, Kansas as single man in 1876. ONE of the original settlers of MUNJOR, Kansas, he later MARRIED Helen LEIKER. Raymond came to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS 1901 with his second wife Mary Krapp, son John KRANNAWITTER (who was Raymond's son by his first wife Maria Catherine DECHANT--John is the author's grandfather), and daughters Julia and Rosa KRONEWITTer (who were the oldest children of Raymond and Mary). Later, another daughter, Katherine KRONEWITTer, and a son, Joseph KRONEWITTer, were BORN in the U.S. Joseph and his sisters spelled their name KRONEWITTer, as do their descendants today. Raymond's brother Johannes and his family migrated to the U.S. in 1901, they spent a short time in ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, Kansas; then they, too, moved to New Mexico where Raymond worked with his brother. In 1907, Raymond and his family moved back to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS and settled near Schoenchen. Many years later, ONE of Johannes' sons, Michael KRANNAWITTER, also moved back to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS and settled near Severin, located about FIVE miles northwest of Catherine.
Stories
The rest of Johannes' children remained in New Mexico, but he and his wife also eventually returned to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS where they settled in Hays, the county seat (Pleve 1998; KRANNAWITTER (Michael J. 1993.)
Margareta KRANNAWITTER, widow of Johann LEIKER, moved to MUNJOR, ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, with her children in 1876. Her son, Peter LEIKER, was ONE of the FIVE scouts sent in 1874 by the Catholic Volga-German colonies to explore the possibilities of establishing settlements in the central plains of the U.S. (Pleve 1998; LEIKER (Victor C. 1976.)
Magdalena Younger, widow of Franz Krannewitter, accompanied her daughter Barbara Krannewitter and Barbara's husband John Pfannnensteil to MUNJOR, Kansas, by 1880. Franz was the brother of Johannes Krannewitter who was the father of Johannes and Raymond KRANNAWITTER, discussed above. (Pleve 1998; Meyer 1976).
Maria Elizabeth Krannewitter (KRONEWITTer) was the sister of Franz and Johannes mentiONEd in the paragraph above. She and her husband John ROHR also moved to MUNJOR by 1880 (Pleve 1998; Meyer 1976).
In 1878, brothers Michael and Joseph Kranewitter--who were brothers of the U.S. immigrants Johannes and Raymond KRANNAWITTER discussed above--migrated to the province of Entrée Rios, Argentina, with their adoptive parents Joseph and Catalina (Unrein) Wendler. They were among the founders of the Volga-German settlement of Marienthal (Valle Maria), located about 25 miles south of the city of Parana (Wendler 1990; Kranewitter (Vicente) 1990). Raphael
Kranewitter--who was probably the brother of Johannes, Raymond, Michael, and Joseph--remained in RUSSIA. His descendents are profiled in Chapter FIVE (Dreher Katharina) 1995).
Adam Kranewitter and his family moved to Valle Maria, Argentina, in 1878. They were also among the founders of that settlement (Pleve 1998; Kranewitter (Vincent) 1990.
Johannes "Weisse" Kranewitter and his wife Margaretha C. LEIKER migrated to Valle Maria in 1880. John Conrad Kranewitter and his family also migrated to Brazil in 1877 and then to Valle Maria in 1880 (PLeve 1998; Kranewitter (Vicente 1990).
Raymond KRONEWITT moved first to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, Kansas, in 1902, and later to the Peace River valley of Alberta, Canada, in 1913. Raymond's aunt Anna Maria Krannewitter and her husband John BOOS and their children migrated to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS in 1892. Raymond KRONEWITT's first cousins Peter and Frank Kronwitter moved to the U.S.--Peter in 1903 and Frank in 1904. Peter and his wife Dorothea BOOS returned to RUSSIA in 1924 and died there. ONE of their daughters Anna Kron (e)witter and her husband John DECHANT moved to the Peace River valley of Alberta in 1915. Peter's brother Frank Kronwitter and his family settled in Pueblo, Colorado. (See Chapter FIVE). (Pleve 1998; Krapp; 1986; DECHANT 1987).
Present-day descendants of the FIVE KRANNAWITTER/Kron(e)witter families who migrated to North America, the SIX Kranewitter families who migrated to South America and TWO of the Kranewitter families stayed in RUSSIA are listed in Chapters FOUR and FIVE.
Chapter FOUR, current listings of related Volga-German families and individuals, as well as the many U.S. families that have variant spellings of the surname and do not have an obvious connection to the Volga-German families. The families are ranked according to the frequency of appearance of each particular spelling in the U.S. telephONE directories or in other U.S. indexes. Also discussed are the areas in the U.S. where there are high concentrations of these families. Various immigration records, the social security Death index, and listings found on the internet were also used to compile this data.
Chapter FIVE, A FOCUS On RELATED KRONEWITT FAMILIES LIVING IN CANADA AND ON RELATED KRAANEWITTER FAMILIES LIVING IN ARGENTINA, RUSSIA, KAZAKHSTAN, AND GERMANY, provides up-to-date listings of the KRONEWITT families in Canada, Kranewitter families in Argentina, and Kranewitter families who chose to remain in what later became the Soviet Union. The information for the American KRONEWITT and Kranewitter descendents came from Internet directories. The information for the RUSSIAn Kranewitter descendants came from private correspondence. These RUSSIAn families underwent terrible ordeals to attain their present positions. Between 1876 and 1914, around 200,000 Volga Germans migrated to Siberia, the U.S. Canada, and countries in South America.
The number of Volga Germans that remained in what later became the Volga German Republic increased to around 600,000 in 1914. In 1912, the population of OBERMONJOU had reached 2,882. By 1926, it had fallen to 2,157, due largely to a deadly famine that had swept through the Volga colonies, which were already devastated by crop failures in 1920 and 1921. The previous disastrous effects of WWI and the resulting civil strife and anti-German sentiment added to the misfortunes of the German settlers. The tyrannical policies of Josef Stalin--brutally enforced by his communist cohorts, another widespread famine in 1932, the con script ion of the young men of the towns into the Soviet army, and the banishment of property holders to prison camps all contributed to the steady decline of OBERMONJOU and the other Volga-German towns. The final blow came during WWII when the German army was approaching the Volga region. Stalin, fearing collaboration of the Volga Germans with the enemy, ordered the banishment of the entire population in AUGUST, 1941, along with the abrogation of the Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic of the Volga Germans, which had been established in 1924. Some 390,000 Volga Germans, which had been established in 1924. Some 390,000 Volga Germans were resettled in Siberia and Kazakhstan (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
Among those people resettled were several Kranewitter families. The author has contacted TWO descendants of these families: Vladimir Kranewitter and Katherine Dreher. Their story and the story of other relatives still living in RUSSIA and Kazakhstan aware recounted in Chapter 5, A FOCUS ON RELATED KRONEWITT FAMILIES LIVING IN CANADA AND ON RELATED KRANEWITTER FAMILIES LIVING IN ARGENTINA, RUSSIA, KAZAKHSTAN, AND GERMANY. Now that the RUSSIAn Government has eased restrictions on the German minority, more are trickling back to the former Volga German Republic near Savator. However, because the RUSSIAn economic situation is so bleak at the present time, many others are filling out the countless forms and submitting the endless documents necessary to immigrate to Germany. Katharina Dreher, mentiONEd above, and her family have joined the thousands of Volga Germans who have returned to their motherlanDIED
Chapter SIX, OTHER FAMILIES WITH VARIANT SPELLINGS OF THE KRANNAWITTER SURNAME LIVING IN EURAOPE AND SOUTH AMERICA, contains statistics on the hundreds of families scattered throughout Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Paraguay who have different versions of the surname KRANNAWITTER. These families and individuals are not obviously related to the Krannewitter couple that settled in OBERMONJOU, RUSSIA, in 1767, Any concentration of families with a similar spelling of the surname is noteDIED Sources for this information were also telephONE directories found on the internet.

The last section of this book is a surname index which consists of an alphabetical list of the surname KRANNAWITTER have already been discussed in this introduction. The reader will notice that in many instances in this book there are also several spellings for certain given names--for example, Catherine, Catharine, Catharina, Katharina, Catalina, etc. The reason for this is that each given name is presented as it was spelled in the record that it was extracted from, as are the surnames.
To make matters worse, from 1773 to 1775 Emyliano Pugachev and his followers staged a rebellion against Catherine. They also encouraged the Kirghiz to stage a rebellion of their own. InTENsifying raids against the German settlements. Large areas of the Volga colonists were devastateDIED Some of Pugachev's followers, including about 100 Germans recruited from other Volga colonies, entered the town of Katherinenstadt, where they harassed and robbed the inhabitants of horses and guns. Katherinenstadt, the largest of the Volga colonists on the Wiesenseite, was only about FIVE miles southwest of OBERMONJOU. Amid all these tragedies, men totally unaccustomed to the rigors of farming were forced to learn that trade. Crop failures in the early years added to the colonists' desperation (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
After TWO generations of colonists had lived and died, conditions for the German settlers along the lower Volga slowly began to improve. They eventually prevailed and prospereDIED As the original Mother Colonies became too crowded, Daughter Colonies were establisheDIED Fortunately, the colony of OBERMONJOU was never attacked by Kirghiz or by Pugachev's rebels. In 1767, 299 people (82 families) had founded OBERMONJOU. TWO years later, the population was 324 (91 families). By 1798, when the first comprehensive census of OBERMONJOU was taken, the population had grown to 429. Through the 19th century, the population steadily increased as living conditions improveDIED But the good times were soon to end (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).

I would like our family history to begin with my great grandparents. Conrad and Anna Margaretha (Kronnewitter) BEFORT, along with their TWO small children, Paula and Peter, emigrated from OBERMONJOUr, RUSSIA, situated along the Volga, north of Saratov.
Leaving on SEPTEMBER 18, 1876, they arrived NOVEMBER 1, 1876. They landed in New York and immediately headed westwarDIED Conrad and Anna, along with other immigrants, settled in and founded what is now known as MUNJOR, Kansas. Upon their arrival (as this was open prairie) the first in order of things was to provide shelter. Their first home was built of sod cut from the prairie. After taking care of their immediate needs, and to survive the coming winter, the next most important thing was to build a place of worship.
Their first church was built in 1877. They were strong in their Catholic faith, and their lives were centered on their religious training.
Conrad and Anna were farmers and were active in their community and church. As the years passed, they eventually had a family of thirteen children. My grandfather, John C. BEFORT, was BORN in MUNJOR, FEBRUARY 18, 1890. He was the ninth child and youngest son.
Conrad died AUGUST 12, 1914, survived by his wife and TEN children. Anna lived in her home in Hays, Kansas, for some years, and the remainder of her life with her son and daughter-in-law John and Barbara.
John C. BEFORT, son of Conrad BEFORT and Anna Margaretha (Kronnawitter) BEFORT, was BORN on FEBRUARY 18, 1890. Barbara Steinbock, the daughter of Alois and Elizabeth Steinbeck, was a sister to triplets She was BORN on JUNE 3, 1893. On OCTOBER 24, 1911, they were MARRIED in MUNJOR, Kansas. They began their life together on a farm several miles west of MUNJOR. They remained there until 1920. During those years FIVE children were BORN to them; Josephine, 6/27/1912; Albina; 9/3/1913, Clarence, 8/4/1915; William, 2/2/1917; and Alex, 10/17/1919.
In the year of 1920, John and Barbara sold their farm and purchased half a section of land half a mile north of Hyacinth, Kansas. The home, barn and other buildings had been built about THREE years earlier. TEN other children were BORN to them the following years; Elizabeth, OCTOBER 19, 1920; Agnes, 7/8/1922; Jane 5/3/1924; John Jr. 9/18/1925, Ester, 8/31/1926; Bernice, 4/24/1928; Irene, 12/13/1929 twins Alois and Conrad, 10/30/1931 and Francis 10/6/1933.
John Jr. and Elizabeth died as infants. Alex was a veteran of World War II in the U.S. Army and saw action in Germany and France. He died in 10/1951. He was survived by his wife, Rose (Steinlein) BEFORT, and infant daughter, Gloria. Irene died 8/16/1965, at age 35, survived by her husband, Leroy Wilson and small son, David Conrad (twin son) died in 1947 at SEVENteen years of age. Francis died in a power line accident 8/22/1961. He was in the army from 1954-1955. He was age 27 when he passed away. He was survived by his wife Darlene (HAMMERSMITH) BEFORT and TWO small daughters, Rosemary, 4 and Margaret, twenty-THREE months old.
John and Barbara worked long hours to provide for and rear their family. Barbara would begin her day at 4'oclock in the morning to do her baking, laundry, and help with outside morning chores, including milking cows and feeding animals. During harvest she was in the fields working along side the men. She was also a seamstress and made most of the children's clothing.
Their children received their elementary education at Hyacinth in a ONE-room school, where all EIGHT grades were taught by ONE teacher. Simon GOETZ and Florence Ross were the teachers during those years. Their children walked to school most of the time as it was only about a mile away from home. However, other times, after a particularly heavy snow storm, the children looked forward to going to school in a ONE-horse open sleigh. John would bundle them up in a fur lap robe and don his buffalo fur coat and away they would go.
They were members of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, also located at Hyacinth, where their children received their sacraments and spiritual training.
John died at 43 years of age on JUNE 30, 1933. Barbara died at 48 years of age on JULY 1, 1941. They were survived by thirteen of their children.

The Descendants of Heinrich & Kunigunde (DOEFLER) BEFORT

Our forefathers who left Germany to go to

RUSSIA to make a better life for themselves

and their children. It is dedicated as well to

our brave forefathers who left RUSSIA to make

a better life for themselves and their children

in the United States. It is especially dedicated

to those of our relatives who stayed in RUSSIA

and endured over fifty years exiled in prison

work camps for their crime of being of German

ancestry.

Forward

Many books and papers about other Volga

German families and their descendants, have

been published over the last fifty years, and

are treasured documents for not only the

serious researcher, but also those with a

passing interest as well. This book is ONE the

descendants of ONE BEFORT family that left

Germany to go to RUSSIA.

While every effort has been made in this

compilation to provide accurate and complete

information, endeavors to acquire additional

facts and details from both the United States

and European sources continue. Any

omission of person (s), places, or events

that deserve inclusion be rein is purely

uninTENtional.

The founders of MUNJOR were part of the

largest single expedition of Unsere Leute to

emigrate from RUSSIA. Under the leadership

of Balthazar Braggart 108 families left

saratov by train on JULY 8, 1876. Their body

consisted of departures from Herzog,

OBERMONJOU, Louis, Graf, Wittman, Marienthal,

Schoenchen, and Gattung. The group

separated at Eydtkunen, with the MUNJOR

founders among those electing to sail via the

Hamburg-American line. Arriving in New York,

they then proceeded by train to Herzog. After

remaining there several days, they repaired a

site on Big Creek a short distance north of the

present village of MUNJOR. Some TWO months

later they moved to the present town site in

Section 25, Township 14, Range 18 in

Wheatland Township.

On NOVEMBER 1, 1876 an additional group

came to MUNJOR. They had emigrated from

Saratov on SEPTEMBER 30 and sailed from

Hamburg on the "Gellert" of the Hamburg of

the Hamburg-American line. This body

consisted of the following families:

Among them were Konrad BEFORT and his wife

Anna Margaretha and their children Peter,

and Paullina.

b. 4/15/1855
Alois or Aloysius Steinbock and his wife, Elizabeth ( Geta ) Steinbock came to the USA
from Germany about Nov. 1905. They brought with them a daughter, Barbara Steinbock
who was born June 3, 1893 who was 11 years old and Henry Steinbock who was born:
date unknown. There was another child born to them in Russia who died there.

They settled in Wamega, Kansas as Alois was a railroader.

On November 3, 1906, his wife, Elizabeth gave birth to Triplets: two boys and a girl.
Their names were Adam, Susanna and Joseph. Alois's wife, Elizabeth died on November
16, 1906. Alois didn't have the means to care for the triplets and work, too, so he wanted
them to be adopted by Catholic families.

Susanna was adopted by: George and Barbara Prockish and the boys still hadn't been
adopted. They were all baptized on November 5, 1906 at St. Bernards Church, Wamega,
Kansas. Sponsors were: Adam Reichenborn, Mrs. George Gareis and Joseph Macht.
Susanna got ill and died Feb. 28, 1907 at Wamega, Kans. Susanna and her Mother are
buried on the same plot at the Wamega cemetery.

NOTE: Aunt Jane Gottschalk looked up this information in 1995 and located the grave
and put a tombstone there. I have certificates of births, Baptisms and newspaper
articles of Elizabeth and Susanna on their death, and church records of the cemetery
plots all obtained from Aunt Jane Gottschalk, Hays, Kansas

Then in 1907, Alois, Barbara and Henry headed west and there's where he met and
married Agatha Wasinger Werth on Jan. 15, 1909. Barbara would have been 15 years
old at this time. It has been said that Barbara was doing housekeeping for the Bahl's,
possibly her stepmother's sister Annie Bahl and, as the story goes, there was a Werth
in Schoenchen who was a matchmaker and got John C. Befort and Barbara Steinbock
to marry on October 24, 1911 making her 18 years old.

NOTE; I don't have much on Henry Steinbock. I do know he and his wife, Mary, had
two daughters and lived in Chicage, Ill. I have the original photos of Henry and Mary
and another one of Henry, Mary and the two girls. I also have the large oval pictures
of Barbara and John C. Befort on their wedding day and one of Henry Steinbock. I
would like to find the members down from Henry if anyone can help me obtain this
information. I was told he died in the 1960's.

NOTE; Aunt Jane Gottschalk never could find where Alois Steinbock was buried or
where the two boys were placed. I have two people working on the Aloysius
Steinbock genealogy from the Topeka area as of this week. According to church
records, he spelled his name Aloysius.

And yes, the last name was spelled wrong in Mothers obituary, but I was over-
ruled on that. I was disgusted when I found out the truth after the fact when I went
through Mother's things and found some letters written to my Mother from Grace
Steinbock. I didn't know her Uncle Joe and Aunt Grace, but when I came upon
these letters, I sent Grace a letter and obituary advising her of Mothers death.

Then one day, I got a call from Grace and we talked for an hour. I did get to meet
her July 1, 2002, just a few weeks ago. This is where I got all these writings. Very
interesting.




New scholarship will help eight students take up
a dream where Bill Befort had to leave it
5/28/02 kb

HAYS, KS -- A dream that never came true for the man who dreamed it will yet be helped toward reality for eight other people when the first distributions are made this fall from the William J. "Bill" Befort Scholarship fund at Fort Hays State University.

Eight future teachers at FHSU will receive scholarships of $400. The Befort Scholarship is for students majoring in teacher education who show a financial need.

Befort, who died in 2000, was one of 13 children from Hyacinth, KS, whose parents died young. The family was able to stay together with the older children raising the younger ones. All of the children finished eighth grade at a nearby school, but none could attend high school, since they could not afford the gas money to drive there. The children supported themselves with gardening, farm work and doing odd jobs for neighbors.

Befort yearned to go to high school and college, but his circumstances made that impossible. Instead, Befort ran a custom cutting business, worked in oil fields, and eventually became a custodian at FHSU, a position he held for 16 years.

Part of the attraction of the job, he once said, was "heating in the winter and air-conditioning in the summer," a substantial improvement over conditions in the oil field.

Befort's sister, Jane Gottschalk of Hays, talked about her brother's desire to establish this scholarship: "Bill wanted to help students have the opportunity to have an education that our family never had." Through his estate, Befort has made his dream come true.

The 2002-2003 academic year recipients are Laurenda Werth of Hays, Tamara Padfield of Nashville, KS, Jessica Stein of Eudora, Amadee Befort of Victoria, Brett Koster of Clay Center, Travis Nittler of Medicine Lodge, Brett Marrs of Hays and Nate Naasz of Beloit.

Notes For Alexander LEIKER:

Alex had a severely damaged heart with leakage of the valves causing the heart to enlarge to double its normal size. He had rheumatic fever at the age of 14. Alex worked as a farmer, carpenter, and a sheet metal man. He was a quality carpenter as he was quiet, patient and articulate in whatever he starteDIED The way he taught his sons how to saw wood reflected his approach to life and people in general. He said that you let the saw ride without effort and never force it. He related that if ONE forces something, it just gets much harder to accomplish. He did not have taste for discipline his children and would rarely become irritated or angry. When he had to discipline he did it only half-hearted. It was obvious that he had his Mother's compassion and patience. The year prior to his death, he built a new home for the family and did all the finished carpentry work himself. He had to rest for extended periods of time but then would proceed to work again. After Christmas he developed pneumonia and died JANUARY 3, 1953 of a combination of pneumonia, congestive heart failure and lung cancer.

Notes for Christina ENSLINGER:

Christina was a farmer, creamery and feed story operator, an avid gardener, ironed clothes for a living and her last employment was as a housekeeper for St. Anthony's Hospital until she retired Her husband was an invalid due to a severe heart condition and so she primarily had to be the provider and care giver. She was only 4' 10" tall and was called "Christina." She had TEN children of which the first was still-BORN after a very difficult birth. She almost single-handed raised NINE children, made sure they all went to High school and they never went hungry. She made sure they had proper clothing even if she had to sew most of the items herself. They were never without proper shelter or medical care. She routinely would butcher 50 chickens, with the assistance of the children, in ONE day and would sell them to a local hospital. Her garden was large with a wide assortment of vegetables and for many years grew THREE acres of potatoes. She canned anything not consumed immediately including beef and pork. A typical Saturday meant baking a dozen pies. Bread was baked at least every day. She baked many wedding cakes. On Mondays she washed and it was no uncommon for her to wash as many as twenty loads plus loads of wash and iron up to forty shirts since she had SIX sons and a husband Until 1952 she cooked on a kerosene stove, had no refrigerator, and used gas iron to iron clothing. Her washing machine was a gas powered machine. More about Christina ENSLINGER:Burial: NOVEMBER 1988, Buried in St. Joseph CeMARRIED in Liebenthal, Kansas.

The Descendants of Peter PFANNENSTIEL
Peter PFANNENSTIEL was BORN 1753 in Ober-Mandershield-Treir, Rhine-Pfaz (Rhineland-Palatine), Germany, and died 1774 in Kidnapped by the Khirgiz and never heard from again. He MARRIED (1) Maria Catharina ? in Ober-mandershield/Rhineland-Pfaz, Germany. She was BORN 1727 in Ober-Mandereid-Treir, Rhineland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany and died About 1767 in Mariental, (Tonoshurovkas), RUSSIA. He MARRIED (2) Sophia Maragaretha DINKEL in Mariental (Tonokoshurovkas), Samara, RUSSIA, daughter of Nika*olaus DINKEL and Anna ? She was BORN 1750 in Wittlich-Trier, Rhineland, Palatinate), Germany

Notes for Peter PFANNENSTIEL:
Peter came from craftsmen of Kurtrier Kurfust and grain farmers of the town of TuTENburg/Tudelback. He is referred to as Pter at times and other times as Johann so his name is probaly Johann Peter and he genrally he was know n as Peter. His family was Catholic. He was captured by the Khirgiz in a raid on Mariental in 1774 and never heard from again. The 1767 census lists him and his family from Trier, Ober Mandersheid, Germany.

This family adopted TWO oldest children (daughters). Their step-mother was a wife of the coloniust, Peter Hertz, who died in the colony: The girls were Mary Elizabetha, Age 13, and Anna Maria, age 10 years of age.

Peter and his brother Michael arrived in Mariental in 1767 with their families. The colonies, intially wre named after their leader and Peter PFANNENSTIEL was the first leader so the Colony was named PFANNENSTIEL and later changed to Mariental. Peter's wife died shortly after arriving in Mariental as she was the first settler to die. He MARRIED a second wife. In 1774 the Khirgiz raided several colonies including Mariental killing many people and taking them as prisONErs. ONE of the PrisONErs was Peter. He was never heard from again.

In the Beideck, RUSSIA village census of 1798, the following account is given regarding the surviving second spouse of Peter PFANNENSTIEL.













Sophia Margaretha PFANNENSTIEL, age 42, (she MAY have been 48) she and her son have resided temporarialy in several colonies since 1784 (should have been 1774) when her husband (Johann PFANNENSTIEL) was captured from Mariental by the Khirgiz; while in these colonies she adopted these children; her son has not paid the 3 nible tax.

Children are listed as follows:

Johann Adams 20 (Identified as Johann Adam PFANNENSTIEL)
Johann Fredrichs 8illegitimate son, surname no listed
Johann Christians 6 illegitimate son, surname not listed
Johann Tobias s 3illegitimate son, surname not listed
Anna Margaretha 212illegitimate daughter, surname not listed

Johann Adam listed can not be the sme as Johann Adam born 1768 (age 30) since Johann Adam born 1768 was MARRIED with THREE children under the age of 6, living with his wife in Ober-MUNJOU (Kriwoskoje), Samara, RUSSIA

Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany was probaly staging area and thus many people had TWO towns listed, ONE probably being their home town and the other the staging area. There also were far more people that had Treir listed as their point of origin than probably lived in the relatively small town of Trier. Thus, the individuals listed as having originated in Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany MAY have had their home village elsewhere.

Immigration: JUNE 16, 1766, To Mariental (Tonkoshurovka(, RUSSIA

Notes for Maria Catharina ?
Arrived JUNE 16, 1766, Mariental (Tonkoshurovka), RUSSIA

Notes for Sophia Margaretha DINKEL:
Sophia DINKEL was the only girl with the name of Sophia that was listed in the oringinal settlers list so she had to bne the Sophia Margarerha that MARRIED the "PFANNENSTIEL" after his first wife awas the first settler to die in Mariental. Peter's brother Michael MARRIED another woman after he was released from captivity so had he MARRIED Sophia, he would not have been able to remarry since Sophia was still alive. ONE has to conclude that it was Peter's first wife who was the first settler to die.

Trier, Rhineland-Pfaz, Germany was probaly a staging area and thus many people had TWO towns listed, ONE probaly being their home town and the other the staging area. There also were far more people that had Trier lsited as their point of origin than probaly lived in the relatively small townof Trier. Thus, the individuals listed as having originated in Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany MAY have had their home village elsewhere.

Notes for Johann Jacob BRUNGARDT:
I do not have any information that Johann Jacob BRUNGARDT is the son of Peter BRUNGARDT but since he was BORN in Rhoedler, RUSSIA and I only know ONE BRUNGARDT that settled in Rohleder, RUSSIA and this is Peter BRUNGARDT so it is very likely the Johann Jacob BRUNGARDT is the son of Peter.

Alois or Aloysius STEINBOCK and his wife, Elizabeth ( Geta ) STEINBOCK came to the USA
from Germany about Nov. 1905. They brought with them a daughter, Barbara STEINBOCK
who was BORN JUNE 3, 1893 who was 11 years old and Henry STEINBOCK who was BORN:
date unknown. There was another child BORN to them in RUSSIA who died there.

They settled in Wamega, Kansas as Alois was a railroader.

On NOVEMBER 3, 1906, his wife, Elizabeth gave birth to Triplets: TWO boys and a girl.
Their names were Adam, Susanna and Joseph. Alois's wife, Elizabeth died on NOVEMBER
16, 1906. Alois didn't have the means to care for the triplets and work, too, so he wanted
them to be adopted by Catholic families.

Susanna was adopted by: George and Barbara Prockish and the boys still hadn't been
adopteDIED They were all baptized on NOVEMBER 5, 1906 at St. Bernards Church, Wamega,
Kansas. Sponsors were: Adam ReichenBORN, Mrs. George Gareis and Joseph Macht.
Susanna got ill and died Feborn 28, 1907 at Wamega, Kans. Susanna and her Mother are
buried on the same plot at the Wamega cemetery.

NOTE: Aunt Jane GOTTSCHALK looked up this information in 1995 and located the grave
and put a tombstONE there. I have certificates of births, Baptisms and newspaper
articles of Elizabeth and Susanna on their death, and church records of the cemetery
plots all obtained from Aunt Jane GOTTSCHALK, Hays, Kansas

Then in 1907, Alois, Barbara and Henry headed west and there's where he met and
MARRIED Agatha Wasinger Werth on Jan. 15, 1909. Barbara would have been 15 years
old at this time. It has been said that Barbara was doing housekeeping for the Bahl's,
possibly her stepmother's sister Annie Bahl and, as the story goes, there was a Werth
in Schoenchen who was a matchmaker and got John C. BEFORT and Barbara STEINBOCK
to marry on OCTOBER 24, 1911 making her 18 years olDIED

NOTE; I don't have much on Henry STEINBOCK. I do know he and his wife, Mary, had
TWO daughters and lived in Chicage, Ill. I have the original photos of Henry and Mary
and another ONE of Henry, Mary and the TWO girls. I also have the large oval pictures
of Barbara and John C. BEFORT on their wedding day and ONE of Henry STEINBOCK. I
would like to find the members down from Henry if anyONE can help me obtain this
information. I was told he died in the 1960's.

NOTE; Aunt Jane GOTTSCHALK never could find where Alois STEINBOCK was buried or
where the TWO boys were placeDIED I have TWO people working on the Aloysius
STEINBOCK genealogy from the Topeka area as of this week. According to church
records, he spelled his name Aloysius.

Barbara STEINBOCK is my Aunt.
And yes, the last name was spelled wrong in Mothers obituary, but I was over-
ruled on that. I was disgusted when I found out the truth after the fact when I went
through Mother's things and found some letters written to my Mother from Grace
STEINBOCK. I didn't know her Uncle Joe and Aunt Grace, but when I came upon
these letters, I sent Grace a letter and obituary advising her of Mothers death.

Then ONE day, I got a call from Grace and we talked for an hour. I did get to meet
her JULY 1, 2002, just a few weeks ago. This is where I got all these writings. Very
interesting.

OUR GERMAN-RUSSIAN HERITAGE

I have located several references that indicate that the surname DINKEL if of occupational origin, ONE of those names derived from the trade or profession once pursued by the original bearer. In this instance, the name DINKEL cna be traced to the Germanic word "DINKEL", meaning "spelt" Spelt was a grain similar to barley and wheat, which was grown exTENsively in the German speaking states during the middle ages. In those days it was common practice to identify a person with the type of work he diDIED Thus a person (farmer) that grew spelt was named DINKEL occurs in 1364.

Many of the Germanic people departed from German during the late 1700's and early 1800's due to the disaster in that part of the world following the SEVEN Year War (1756-1763). Family tradition suggests that our DINKEL ancestors emigrated from Koblitz, Bavaria in 1764, during the exodus of Germans to RUSSIA. There was a major economic crisis in all Europe after the war, poverty was rampant and soldiers were roaming the countryside looking for work and something to eat.

Catherine the Great of RUSSIA, of Germanic ancestry, had vast expenses of land that she wanted settled, developed and protected from the heathen nomadic tribes that lived in scattered sections of the RUSSIAn steppes. In 1762 she issued an invitation, referred to as a "Manifesto", to the European peoples. This invitation, being rather vague, produced few results so she issued a second invitation in 1763 containing 10 articles making specific promises to anyONE that settled in RUSSIA. This invitation garnered many people, including some 25,000 Germans from 1763 to 1767, willing to accept her invitation. From 1764, when the first settlers arrived in the Saratov region of the river Volga, until 1768 some 104 villages were established, 44 on the Bergseite and 60 on the Wiesenseite of the Volga. The villages on the west side, the mountain side, of the Volga were on the BVergseite, those on the east side, the meadow side, were on the Wiesenseite. The village of Herzog, on the Weisenseite, along the river Karaman was established in 1766. Times were extremely difficult when the settlers first arriveDIED They had to erect their own shelters and establish their villages in the vast expanse of the Volga steppes. Their initial shelters were mere earthen huts.

The original settler list for the Colony of Herzog, dated 14 JULY 1766, comprised of 35 families does not contain the surname DINKEL. It does, however, contain teh name of Johann and Anna Kuhn, names in positions 48 and 49 on Andreas A DINKEL's Pedigree Chart (included). The first reference DINKEL (Nicolaus) was located in the original settler list for the Colony of Mariental dated 1766. His name has not been found in any of the 1798 census that have currently been translateDIED The census of Herzog, dated 2 JUNE 1798, does indicated a Jakob DINKEL, had resided in Herzog but had moved to Leichtling in 1786. The 1798 census of Leichtling indicates that Jakob had resided there but had died prior to this census. His wife, Helen Ortman, and their children are included in the census of 7 OCTOBER 1798. This census indicates that Joseph, a son of Jakob and Helena, was 3 years old at the time. Additional research disclosed that Joseph was the father of Peter who was the father of Andreas.

Eventually, the privileges bestowed on the settlers by the Manifesto of 1763, especially the exemption from military service, aroused the resentment of the RUSSIAns. In JANUARY 1874 a military law was passed requiring the settlers to serve in the armed services. This, the repeal of the special privileges granted by Catherine the Great in the Manifesto, aroused extreme indignation in the German settlers. In the spring of 1874, meetings were held in Herzog on the Wiesenseite, and Balzar on the Bergseite, to select scouts to the United States in search of new land to settle. The scouts returned with favorable reports. The initial military draft of settlers in 1874 precipitated matters and the first departure of settlers for the United States occurred in OCTOBER 1875. A larger group followed, departing in JUNE 1876. Our ancestors, Andreas DINKEL and Katharine KUHN, were among this latter group. Departing Saratov, this group occupied 17 coaches, some progressed to Hamberg and the remainder to Bremen. Andreas and Katharina were in the group progressing to Bremen. The Bremen group took passage on the North German Lloyd S.S. Mosel, under the command of ship master H. A. F. Neymaker. The fare was 38 rubels (27.36) per passenger. Katharina is listed as passenger 514 in steerage and Andreas is listed as passenger 542 in steerage on the passenger list of the ship, which includes 705 passengers. The S.S. Mosel arrived athe the Port of New York on 29 JULY 1876. Those coming to Kansas immediatly made arrangements, at rubles (11.52) per passenger, to proceed to Kansas arriving at Herzog/Victoria on 3 AUGUST 1876, the rubel was worth 72 cents.

After arriving in Herzog, Victoria, Andreas worked at various employments including a tour with the Kansas Pacific RailroaDIED He completed application to homestead the south 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of section 32-13-16 on 26 DECEMBER 1877. Andreas and Katharina MARRIED on 21 JANUARY 1879. Their first child, Andreas A., was BORN on 28 JULY followed by NINE more children, for a total of FIVE boys and FIVE girls. He purchased his first parcel of land, the north 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of section 32-13-16, from Magdalena Riedel, on 24 OCTOBER 1884, for $425.oo.

The Wasingers
The ancestry of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck is shown as far as can be ascertained from church records in St. Fidelsis Monastery, Victoria, Kansas, and from visits with some of the older people who knew Franz and Anna Wasinger. The parents of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck are known and documenteDIED The grandparents of Franz Wasinger are in doubt. In the mid 1930's Frank Windholtz visited with Franz Wasinger about his grandparents. Franz Wasinger said that his grandfather was Christopher Wasinger. He did not know the name of his grandmother. Helen Hall in her These Are Our Religion has a Johannes Wasinger, spouse known, as the grandfather of Franz.
In "History from 1760 to 1938 of Joe Wasinger, G. Peter Wasinger, Anton Wasinger, SR., Anton DIED Wasinger" translated by Anton DIED Wasinger, is an account of a Joe Wasinger, MARRIED to a young woman named Mareda, who migrated with the Germans to RUSSIA 1764. This Joe, about thirty years old, was the father of Johannes, a Christopher, and nONE other children. This Johannes is supposedly the great great grandfather of this writer. The Christopher is the forebear of another group of Wasingers who came to the United States at the time.
This writer does not know who his great great grandfather Wasinger was, but likes to believe that Grandfather Franz Wasinger knew who his grandfather was. Grandfather Franz Wasinger was about SIXty-SIX years old in 1935 to 1936 when Franz Windholz interviewed hiMARRIED According to Windholz, Grandfather had a clear, sharp mind and a good memory. So this writer likes to believe that his great great grandfather and the great great grandfather of all the third generation descendants of Franz and Anna Wasinger was a Christopher Wasinger.

This book is dedicated to all the families who sacrifficed to come to America and survived and even thrived in the face of Great difficulties to make a better living for furture generations.

This book is also dedicated to Mary G. Hecker whose goal was to research and put together this book of her family to pass the "torch" of family history. Due to health problems, she was unable to continue.

Mary Genevieve was BORN in the sod house at the farm outside of St. Peter, Kansas and atTENded St. Peter Catholic school. At age 12 the family moved to the farm outside of Quinter. She MARRIED E. J. Hecker in 1928 and they moved to Salina in the early 1940's. Mary was active in her church and with the Catholic women organizations. The medal she is wearing in the picture depicts the highest honor bestowed on a non-religion individual for service in the church. It is the "Pro Eccesia at Pontifice" Medal bestowed by Pope John Paul II AUGUST 11, 1982, represented by Bishop Daniel Kucera in recognition for her "notable service on behalf of the church and the Roman Pontiff".

The background of the families is information from Mary (Spies) Hecker, Hilda, (Spies) Wasinger, Barbara (Spiies) Loevenstein, Sophia (Spies) Brown, Barbara (Graf) Spies and other relatives recorded by Louella (Hecker) Clennan, daughter of Mary Hecker on a trip to Western Kansas and Colorado APRIL 21-28, 1991. Mary had wanted to continue to search out genealogy information and visit her oldest sister, Sophia. Mary had recuperated from a minor stroke aand heart attack in 1990.

When it was learned that Mary (who lived in Salin) was going to Sopia's house in BrighTEN, Colorad, Sophia asked her to bring the "box" that had belonged to their Dad (Peter Spies Jr.) Mary and Lou picked up Hilda in Wakeeney and continued to Quinter to visit Barb Spies (sister-in-law) and picked up the "box" from Barb Loevenstein.

Good visits were made to St. Peter, Collyer, the farm in Quinter, cemeteries, churches, and Park, Kansas. Park is where Mary and her husband, Emanual, had lived when first MARRIEDIED

Good visits were made to St. Petter, Collyer, the farm in Quinter, cemeteries, churches, and Park, Kansas. Park is where Mary and her husband, Emanuel, had lived when first MARRIEDIED

While in Colorado, they had to visit with Katherine (Katie) Laevenstein in Denver (1st cousin). Katie MARRIED Mike Laevenstein, a brother to Jake Loevenstein, who changed the spelling of their name from o to a. It is unknown why Mike made that chnage.

This was the last time Mary saw Sophia and Katie die to health probelms preventing any of them from traveling any distance. It was while in Colorado that MAY mentiONEd that "I MAY have bit off" more than I can chew."

In 1997, I decided it was time to continue the work Mother could no longer do, so the weekend of JUNE 6-8. 1997 my sister Irene (Hecker) Fiffe living in Hutchinson, Kansas and my daughter, Stephanie (Clennan) Jacobson living in Olatthe, Kansas, took a trip as far as Park, Kansas. MAY home in Eldorado, Kansas. During this trip, old pictures were gaathered to make copies and additional notes wre taken. We stayed at Elsie and Kenny Loevenstein's. Elsie prepared a delicious dinnner.

ONE major purpose was to see the new graveestONE of the Spies babies who died and were buried in St. Anthony's Cemetery in St. Peter. They were the children of Peter and Eva Spies. They never had a gravestONE and the small wooden crosses had long disappeareDIED Vernon Hecker (at Mother's request) made the arrangements. This is what Mother's siblings agreed needed to be dONE. The babies are buried beside their Grandparents, Peter Sr. and Christina Spies.

Mother (Mary Hecker) had doene exTENsive research at court houses, sity buildings, libraries, the Kansas State Historical Society in Topeka, the American Historical Society of Germans from RUSSIA in Lincoln, Nebraska, the National Archives in Washington, DC, as well as letters and dphONE calls. She found reporots were poorly writTEN, misspelling of names, and both parents not listed when requireDIED Many times only baptisimal date was available and not the date of birth.

I have tried my best to puut it alll together. Thank you to all who haave helped fill in the gaps and make corrections. There is still incomplete and probably inaccurate iinformation and for this I'm sorry. Time constraints didn't allow deeper research and I thought it was more important to get this "family history" to familly members before too many years passeDIED MAY God bless and watch over our families.

Although this book is about the descendants of Peter Spies Sr. (BORN) in 1857) and AntONE Katzendown (BORN 1848) and in particular Peter Spies Jr. (BORN 1881)
and Eva Maria Katzendorn (BORN 1886), it seems only right ti relate some background history as to why many Germans left Germany for RUSSIA in 1766.

Germany

There was unrest in Europe under the leadership of Fredrick the Great. The SEVEN years War had just ended (Countris were fighting the German kingddoms of PRUSSIA, Hanover and Great Britain, (and had brought disaster to many Germann people.

There was economic crisis in all of Europe; and also high taxes, lack of freedom of religion, and poverty, causing, much dissatisfaction.

Catherine the GReat ascended to the thrown of the Czars as Empress of RUSSIA and wanted her reign to be noticed by the worlDIED She wanted settlers in RUSSIA, mainly farmers, to develop the semi-arid areas in vast uninhibited steppe regions on the Volga River. She also felt that developing this land would serve as a buffer against the Heathen nomadic tribes who periodically attacked the RUSSIAns in the area. Being German by birth, her invitation went to Germany. Her first Manifesto produced no results. Her second Manifesto of JULY 22, 1763, promised more and was delivered by men of German birth to induce as many as possible of their countryment to emigrate to RUSSIA. They made RUSSIA sould like paradis, and offered inducements not in the manifest. The manifest offered (stated briefly)
1. Settle wherever they pleased and could pursue their occupations
2.....Freedom of relion--churches and schools, priests and ministers.
3. Would receive mONEy to defray travel expense
4. In RUSSIA, would be lent mONEy, interst free with 10 years payback
5. Volga River Settlers would be exempt from taxes.
6. LLowere Volga Settlers could shoose their own government
7. Settlers with mONEy were not taxed if the mONEy was used for personal use
8. All male immigrants would be exempt from military duty indefinitely
9. Factories and Industries established would be free for TEN years.
10. Free to leave the country at any time but would have to pay a tax on their efforts.

Peter Spies, age 29, along with his wife, Christina, age 30, and TWO children Peter Jr. and Johannes, arrived in Baltimore Maryland FEBRUARY 21, 1988. They were on the boat FOURteen days. Christina knew how to reaDIED Peter did dnot. According to the dates of birth, it appears that Christina was pregnant on the ship, as Teckler was BORN in America in 1888. They went to Victoria, Kansas by train to Christina's sister, Catherine, who was marrried to John GOETZ.

Barbara Graf Spies' Grandparents sponsored Peter and Christina Spies to Amerrica. Albert Graf in Hays, Kansas has papers to show the Graf's sponsored theMARRIED

They settled in St. Peter, Kansas,, in Graham County in 1888 or 1889. According to the Book The St. Peter Kansas People and their town, Peter Spies owned the Southwest quarter section of lot 11. It was east of the church. He also had a farm outside of St. Peter about FOUR miles east and ONE mile south.

According to Mary (Spies) Hecker, her grandfather, Peter, had beautiful horses that he trained to dance. She wass impressed at their beeauty. He would decorate the wagon and horses for weddings. The bride would ride in the horse drawn wagon to the church.

Peter Spies had the first Model T Ford in St. Peter. At harvest time, JULY 3, 1916 he drove to Moreland for groceries. His car ran off the road coming back home. He had a broken neck. He was taken to his home where he dieDIED He was 58 years olDIED

Christina Terre' Spies was a very quiet woman. Sophia, Mary and Hilda (her grandchildren) remember. her as always sitting in a char and prayying the Rosary. They thought she must have been homesick for RUSSIA. They stated that she was a thin woman. She was extremely parrticular and neat so she didn't want the Grandchildren in her house. She would go visit her children's homes. There are no pictures of their hosue. After Peter Sr. died she sold the land and the hosue on the farm, but kept the house in town. Isadore, their son, was still living at home but when he was old enough, he joined the army. She must have then sold the house in St. Peter because she took turns living with her children. She was at Peter Jr's house in Quinter when she dieDIED

Sophia (Spies) Broan tells this account of the incident: Momma had gONE to the store and Gandma was sitting on the back porch on the chair she always sat in to rest or pray.

She never talked much. i (Sophia) was in the kitchen. Grandma called to me "Sophia, I have to lay down, I am very sick." "What's wrong grandma?" "I canot get my breath, I can not get anyy breath, so open the door." I (Sophia) put water on her and helped her and said, "Don't die." So I ran out fast. It was far away and then I told Dad, "Dad, hurry home, Grandma is very, very, sick." Then Dad drove back with the horses and when he came back to the house she wass deaDIED
Peter and Christina's second child, Johannes Spies, died at age 44, from suicide. His first wife died after FIVE years of marriage. He left the area to get a joborn Their FOUR children were raised by their grandparents Bollig. He would visit sometimes. His second wife, Ruth Burns, was from Ellsworth, Kansas. He was estranged frim her and was in Hutchinson, Kansas when he shot into a group at the hosue where she was staying in Hutchinson, and then shot himself.

The Spies' adopted Isadore Barker when he was 4 years of age. It was not unusual, as the children gre older, MARRIED, and left home, for families to adopt children fromt he orphan train. They provided help for the necessary farm work. Isador was the SEVENth living child of Peter and Christina Spies. He left home about the age of 18 and joined the Army.

KILLED BY GAS
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Whitman, an aged couple, were killed by coal gas at their home in this city Monday afternoon. They were found dead between 4 and 5 o'clock by their son-in-law, Sylvester Dietz, who lives two miles north of the city, and who went to the house with some provisions. The old gentleman was sitting in a chair near the stove and his wife was lying near. The stovepipe was on the floor, and from all appearances it would seem that Whitman had taken it down to clean it, and becoming fatigued, had sat down in the chair, where he had been overcome. The couple were about 70 and 73 years of age, the husband being the older. They lived alone in a little cottage in the north part of town. At an inquest it was decided that death was caused by coal gas.
Note: The newspaper spelled their names wrong, its Wittmann, not Whitman.


Does anybody know if Rosalias last name was spelled Riedel or Reidel. All sources vary but I have no confirmative resource such as a wedding record etc. I have ordered her death certificate. In the meantime, I would appreciate any other information. Contact mish@btigate.com

MR. AND MRS. BERNARDT "BARNEY" WITTMAN
Bernardt Wittman and the former Elizabeth Becker were married in Hankinson, January 21, 1896. They lived there until 1900 and then came to settle 14 miles northeast of Kenmare. In 1907 they moved to Minnesota and farmed there for some time, returning to North Dakota and settling in Norma where they operated a cafe for some time. They continued living on their original farm, until 1928 when they had a sale. They moved to Saskatchewan, Canada, but after living there for 5 years and not wishing to become citizens of Canada, they packed their belongings in their Maxwell car; and with their two youngest chldren (Mildred and Frank) they moved Anacortes, Wash. to reside (1933).
He was employed as a longshoresman until he retired. They were both active members in the St. Mary's parish organizations in Anacortes. Prior to that time they belonged to the St. Agnes parish in Kenmare during the years they farmed in this area, until 1928. Mrs. Wittman was a charter member of St. Agnes Altar Society.
Their children are: Mrs. (Rosella) McGillvary, Eureka, Calif.; Mrs. (Olivia) T.A. Pumarlo, Anacortes, Wash.; Jack; Frank; Mrs. (Henrietta) Pierce, Anacortes, Wash.; Mildred, Mt. Vernon, Wash.; Lewis B., Norma, married Lena Christianson. He died in 1972 at age 86 years.
Qyoting Mrs. Wittman: "Two things I remember about Kenmare were hitching a team of horses to the buggy every Sunday to drive to church in Kenmare at St. Agnes.....The second was the time Rosella and her cousin Lola (Aurens) Donahue of Flaxton decided to walk from Bowbells to the Wittman farm...12 miles distance...But did it only once!"
The Wittmans observed their Diamond Jubilee on January 22, 1956 at the home of their son-in-law and daughter, the T.A. Pumarlos.

ELIZABETH AND BERNARD WITTMAN
Bernard (Barney) Wittman and Elizabeth Becker were married at Hankinson, North Dakota, in 1896. He was a grain buyer while they were there. In 1900 he and some friends of Mons Brekhus decided to come to this part of the state.
They came by wagon, bringing a cow and other household items. Mrs. Wittman and two or three youngsters came by train later. In 1907 they went to Watkins, Minnesota, to care for their elderly parents. They rented their farm to the Mankie boys and some time later they returned and managed a hotel and cafe in Norma for a few years.
In 1912, they moved back to their farm and lived there until Louie took over their farm in 1928. They stayed there five years; from there they went to Anacortes, Washington, where they resided until their deaths.
Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Wittman, of whom six survive. Louie passed away in 1973, and Sylvia when she was three years of age. Jack, Olivia, Henrietta and Frank live at Anacortes, Washington. Mildred lives at Bellingham, Washington, and Rosella at Eureka, California.

To my knowledge, Hilary and Loretta never married and did not have any children. Sylvester Raymond Dietz died at 7 years of age. So, I guess I won't be looking for any of Carolina's direct descendants. They are all deceased!!!!

SYLVESTER DIETZ' CONDITION SERIOUS
---Physicians Give Little Hope for Recovery of Victim of Automobile Mishap---
Physicians attending Sylvester Dietz, Wahpeton resident who suffered a broken back in an automobile accident Wednesday of last week on the Wyndmere road near the Crawford farm, today gave little hope for his recovery. A consultation was held Tuesday. Mr. Dietz is in little pain. He is one of the city's old and well respected residents. Others injured in the automobile accident caused by a tire blowout which ditched their car as they were returning from the Eberley farm near Barney were Frank Eberley and Frank Huber. Mr. Eberley, who has a fractured shoulder, is getting along nicely. Mr. Huber still has occasional lapses of haziness, but is resting easily and is out of danger.

Willam's adult life was a tragic one. Read on...

The whereabouts of William's widow and his descendants remains a mystery.
The Wittmann family will rejoice the day that this link is made.
Several prayers & thoughts have been expressed through the years.

William's wife appears to have several different names: Josephine, Margaret, & Barbara. Her name differs on her second marriage certificate, her first husband's obituary as printed in the paper, and on her daughter's death certificate. Based on 1910 Census information, the best conclusion is that her name is Barbara Tix. Throughout the years, our family has only known her by the nickname of Libbie/Libby.

A marriage certificate was received from Richland County, North Dakota, that states that a Mrs. Josephine Wittmann, age 26, married John Peter Ehr, age 29, on October 2, 1913. John was from Hankinson, North Dakota. The application for marriage license asks if either of the parties were ever married. The following comment is noted: "Yes - Mrs. Josephine Wittmann formerly married - husband dead." Witnesses to this marriage where Nicholas Goche & Elizabeth Tix.

William's newspaper obituary states that he married Margaret Tix.
It is believed that the newspaper was most likely in error in regards to her name.

William and his wife, Barbara had a daughter named Wilhelmina who died as a young baby of gastrointestinal problems. Wilhelmina's middle name was Josephine. Wilhelmina's death certificate has the mother listed as Barbara Tix. The birthplace of Barbara is listed as Bancroft, Iowa. The death certificate was signed by Mrs. William B. Wittman.

Again, the question remains....Does anybody know what happened to William's widow Barbara Tix and their children, Irene and Dorothy??????

Peter Brungardt, the first known of our ancestors came to Russia in 1766 and settled in Rohleder. Andreas his son moved to Herzog in 1791.

Andreas Brungardt (1769) married Anna Maria Dopler, hence the name "Die Doplers" in Kansas today.
Books are available at Holstein's in Hays, Kansas.













This is a record mostly of the descendants of Peter Younger and Margaret Mermis. The Youngers came to this country in 1876 from Herzog, Russia to better themselves religiously, politically, and economically. Many other Germans from the Volga River area near Saratov, Russia, did the same.
This work is not complete. It is an abridged form because the authors put together just what they could find in the church censuses of the several parishes that were available to them, and what they learned from the interviews with Rose and Clara Younger of Munjor, Kansas, and from family charts.
Most of the families have five and six generations. Only one family that of Alois Younger and Mathilda Hertel has all the descendants--seven generations.
Concerning the spellin of the name Younger, there are four variations: Junker, Yunker, Younker, and Younger. The various church records have one or the other spelling, yet all these people are related. In a few instances even the sibblings use different spellings.

Fr. Raphael Engel, O.F.M. Cap. in his "The Joseph Engel Family"
writes:
Turning to the village of Herzog, Russia we meet a few families by the name of Younger or Junker, one of whom was Peter and his wife Margaret nee Mermis. His father was know to mother as mentioned above, our great great grandfather. Unfortunately his name is not known. The children of Peter Younger were: Martin, our grandfather, born Aug. 10, 1834, Andrew, John Peter, Margaret, Francis and Agnes. THe last mentioned did come to this country with the family. Peter Younger had several brothers, one of whom was Mathias who remained in Russia. Only one of his descendants later came to America. Another brother, Michael, migrated tto Brazil with his family. He died there are his descendants came to Ellis County settling for the most part in Hays, Kansas.

A brief hisotry taken from the Brungardt Genealogy, Volume I, by Helen Hall, tells us that a widow Brungardt, her two sons and a daughter migratted from Germany to Russia in 1767-68. They were of the Luthern Faith. The widow and one son settled in Herzog, Russia and accepted thte Catholic Faith.

Here the assumption is made that Adam Brungardt, gradson to the widow Brungardt was born in 1780. He married Katharina Dreiling. Thanks to Helen L. Hall for her research many years ago, we can accept Adam and Katharina Brungardt as our ancestral grandparents.

Adam married Katharina Dreiling. He was born in 1780 in Russia and married in Russia. Katharina Dreiling was born in Russia also. They both died in Russia.

Children
Franz Brungardt married Anna Maria Riedel
Magdalena Brungardt married Peter Sander
John George Brungardt married Margaret Rome
Bathasar Brungardt married Margaret Schmamme
Katharina Brungardt married John Kuhn I
Elizabeth Brungardt married Christopher Wassinger
John Brungardt married Anna Appelhans

Only two of the above seven children of Adam and Katharina Brungardt came to America. They werer Franz, married to Anna Maria Riedel, and Magdalena married to Peter Sander. However, all of the descendants of the above seven children came to America unless stated otherwise.

Accordingg to the Brungardt Henealogy Volume I the "Brungardts" left Herzog, Russia enroute to America on June 22, 1876, arrived in New York aboard the |North German Lloyd Line "Morsel". After going through customs at port of entry they were allowed to board a train enroute to western Kansas. They arrive in Ellis County on August 3, 1876.
