Keep in mind that these documents were hand written. While they are often inconsistent, they are still the best records of the lives of the Volga colonists. Some of the inconsistencies arise because the census is based upon testimony of the heads of households, not upon documentary sources such as church registers of births, deaths, and marriages. Inconsistencies also arise from incompatibilities between the Russian, German, and English languages, all of which have undergone extensive changes in the past 250 years. The Russian used in the eighteenth century has more characters in its alphabet and different rules of grammar than modern Russian. The changes demanded by Peter the Great late in the seventeenth century and codified by Lomonosov in 1755 were very slowly and reluctantly accepted. Many scribes in the eighteenth century still used characters and grammar from Old Slavonic. It was not until Pushkin's works were published in the early to mid-nineteenth century that the Russian language became completely standardized. The English, German, and Russian alphabets do not always have corresponding characters for each other. For example, Russian has no character for the English or German "H." The Russian "T" is used for both. The result is German for Herman, and so on. And very often the Russian scribes who copied the census did not spell a German name the same way twice. Systems of measurement in Russia changed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The basic unit of distance, the verst, varied from 500 to 700 sazhen in length. The following table can be used as a general guideline: verst - about 3500 feet desyatina - about 2.7 acres sazhen - from 1.8 to 2.2 meters chetvert - about 210 liters chetverik - about 26 liters pood - about 36 pounds According to Stumpp, Susly\Herzog was founded in 1788 by 141 persons. By 1912 the population had risen to 2009. That number had declined to 1143 by 1926. The Russian name for the colony, Susly, means "hops." Raskaty\Rohleder was founded in 1766 by 208 persons. By 1912 the population had risen to 2359. That number had decreased to 1520 by 1926. The russian name for the colony, Raskaty, means roll or peal, as a roll of thunder. 1798 CENSUS OF SUSLY\HERZOG Register Made by the Office [Kontora) of Immigrant Oversight by Fellow of the Chief Justice, Court Councellor Popov in the colonies of Susly (Herzog), and Raskaty (Rohleder) about the number of foreigners who live there; males and females with their ages; of those able to work, counting from the age of 16 years to 60 years. And additional notes are made according to personal observation of colonists. June 2, 1798. We find that in 1796 Joseph Lederhos and family moved from Rohleder to Herzog. In the 1798 Census of Herzog it list Joseph Lederhos from Raskaty (Rohleder), 41 years of age, male, and able to work. His wife: Susanna Hein, age 39,female. With one daughter: Katarina, age 20, female and her husband: Johann Weber from Ober-Monjou. His age is 26 years old, male, and able to work. In the 1798 Census of Raskaty (Rohleder) it list Johannes Lederhos, 37 years of age, male, and able to work. His wife: Margareta Fisch (I find the spelling could have been Fischer) 40 years of age, female, from Chaisol (Chasselois). There three sons: Matthias, age 12. Johann, age 10. Franz Peter, age 3. And there three daughters: Barbara, age 14. Katarina, age 5. And Margareta, age 1. It would appear that we are descendants of Johannes since he is from Rohleder, Russia where Anton Lederhos was born and immigrated from. And since at age 41, Joseph had no sons, and lived in Herzog, Russia. I have also had information that Anton Lederhos and family came over from Rohleder, Russia via Hamburg port on the ship Kaiser Wilhlm, arriving at Ellis Island on Oct 4,1899. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HERZOG - IN RUSSIN Herzog, (Susley) in Russia was founded in 1764. Rohleder (Raskaty) was founded in 1766, and Graf (Krutogorowka) was founded in l764. Most of the colonists that founded Herzog in Kansas migrated to America from these towns. After their arrival in Russia in 1767, the colon-ists were subjected to terrible hardships, mainly because of the raids of the Kirghiz, a nomandic tribe of Asiatics who lived in the Ural Mountain region. Some of the German settlers were killed and others were carried away into captivity. By 1874 most of the rights granted by Catherine the Great were taken from them, so a general unrest developed and people were thinking of leaving for another country. (Joseph Linenberger, 1902). Had it not been for a man from Herzog, Russia, the immigration might never have taken place. Baltasar Brnngardt was Schreiber (Secretary) of Herzog, and while serving as juror in Novousensk, found that the colonists had the right to emigrate to other countries without forfeiture of any property. After getting a ruling from the state's attorney, in the affirmative, 3000 colonists met at Hertog in the spring of 1874 to discuss the migration. (Fr. Francis S. Laing, O.F.N.Cap - Geraan-Russian Settlements of' Ellis Co.) After 5 delegates were sent to America to find a suitable place to live, the first families left Herzog for America on Oct. 12/24, 1875 and arrived in April of 1876. They came to Victoria (founded by George Grant in 1873) and settled 1 mile north and called their town Herzog. According to Sr. ELoise Johannes CSJ, the Baltazar Brungardt diary (June 22, 1876) reports that there were l08 families that set sail “Ge Gotts Namen", on July 2, 1876 on a vessel of the North-German Lloyd line. They recited the rosary, and sang sacred songs on board ship. The food on board snip was good and mention is made of beef, sauerkraut, soup beans and white bread and butter. They were accompanied part way by a party of German-Russian Mennonites, who settled in Nebraska. In 1913 Victoria and Herzog were incorporated and it was called the City of Victoria. The names of the founding families were: ArTihold, Billinger, Brungardt, Braun,Bollig, Denning, Dinkel, Dreiling, Goetz, Graf, Geist, Herman, Hammerschmidt, Haas, Hoffman, Kreutzer. Klaus, Knoll, Kunn, Lang, Linenberger, Leiker, Meris, Pfeifer, Quint, Rome, Riedel, Rohleder, Stang, Scheck, Sender, Storm, Schmidtberger, Schumacher, Toepfer, Vonfeld, Weigel, Wasinger, Wittrnan, Windholz, Weber, Younger and others. (Any omissions are unintentional). Herzog, (Victoria) became the largest and most important of all the German-Russian settlements, in Ellis County. From there people founded St. Peters, Walker, Emmeram and Vuncent. The greatest tribute to the people of this city is their church. On Oct. 4, 1909 the corner stone was laid for this nationally known shrine named “The Cathedral of the Plains” by William Jennings Bryan. This church was built by a handful of people with great faith, strong backs, and tough hands, very little money, and a willingness to sacrifice. St. Fidelis Church is now a member of the National Register of Historic Places, Washington, D.C. Thousands of visitors stop yearly to marvel at this beautiful structure. 96 years have passed since the first German-Russians came to Victoria It is a progressive clean city with many beautiful homes and business places. The people are proud of their church, St. John' s home for the aged, and civic minded leaders are making Victoria a nice place in which to live. A municipal swimming pool is currently under construction. The people of Victoria can be proud of their accomplishments. (42) THE MANIFESTO In last weeks "Star" we gave a list of the Manifesto decrees, which were to induce people from various parts of Europe and particularly Germany to migrate to Russia, for settlement. THE IMPERIAL Russian commissary was Capt. J. C. Von Koter, and he was assisted by Mr. Florentin and Psanu, all Germans by birth. These men were sent to Frankfurt by the Russian government to invite Germans to settle in Russia. They did their job well. Approximately 8000 families (about 25,000 people) from Hessia, Saxony, Alsatia, Baden, Wuertemberg, Bavaria, Tyrol, Switzerland and the Platinate were induced by these men to emigrate. SO THE TRIP to Russia began. Various centers were established for meeting places. They were Luebeck, Regensburg, Freiburg, Etc. From these centers they moved on to Iuebeck - seldom to Danzig - where they embarked on a ship for Kron-stadt on the Gulf of Finland. In an earlier article in the STAR we quoted a man named Platen who said he spent fourteen days in Luebeck waiting for a ship……and then when the trip began he said "Sechs Wochen muessten wir die Wasserfahrt Ausstehen, Angst, Elend, Hungersnoth, Taeglich vor Augen sehen” For six weeks we had to endure the Journey by water. Fear, misery and hunger stood daily before our eyes. Not all of the settlers were on the boat to Kronstadt on the Gulf of Finland for this length of time, but it was a rough voyage. HOW DID THEY TRAVEL. Arriving in Kronstadt they moved on to Oranienbaum, where Catherine herself met them, and welcomed them. Dr. Stumpp says that they took two different routes from Petersburg (now Leningrad) which is located on the Gulf of Finland. One route Stumpp indicates was across land until they reached the Volga in northern Russia. There they stay-ed until spring, and when the ice thawed they moved on down the Volga by boat through Kasan, Samara and finally Saratov. Apparently the other route was made all the way by land through Moskow and Petrowski where they wintered, and then- in the spring moved on southward toward Saratow with wagons and on foot. The northern route was 1800 kilometers or approximately 1100 miles. The route through Moskow by wagon was somewhat closer--about 1400 kilometers or 900 miles. It has been said that the sufferings on these trips were far greater than on can imagine. WHY DID THE PEOPLE LEAVE GERMANY: Here are the most important reasons. IN GERMANY IN RUSSIA 1. Political suppression by foreign Possibilities of free life powers, but also by domestic and development. princes and governments. 2. Military and feudal service in the Freedom from military service homeland and for foreign powers. "for eternal time". 3. Economic distress, crop failures, Offer of land, almost unlimited hungry years, scarcity of land, possibilities of land purchase, tax burdens. freedom from taxation. 4. Harsh and often unjust administration. Self-administration. 5. Innovations in sphere of church. Complete religious freedom.

(43) SISTER VILLAGES THE ELLIS COUNTY settlers increased rather rapidly, and spread out in all dir-ections. A number of new colonies were established. Older villages were pop-ulated with Volga Germans. HAYS for example, was an old Fort town for the pro-tection of the region against Indians. It was a frontier cow town before the Volga Germans came, and only a few scattered Catholic families lived there. TODAY, HAYS has become the most populated center of Catholic Volga Germans in Kansas, and not only do we have two large parishes here, but also a Girls Catholic High School known as Marian High, and a boys preparatory high school known as Thomas More Prep. ELLIS to the west of Hays has become fairly well populated with Volga Germans. Here for many years the Union Pacific Railroad maintained shops, and gradually this attracted some of the people from the eastern Part of the county to settle there. In the 1880's, THE FARMERS BOUGHT LAND IN THE Ellis area and moved to that City. GORHAM, in Russell County in the same way attracted people from the Herzog area, and a number of Herzoger moved there in 1893. Way out in Wichita County MARIENTHAL was founded as an offshoot of Herzog. This was in 1892. ST. PETER in Graham County began in 1894 when Catholic Volga Germans from Herzog and other Ellis County towns moved there and purchased land. Before this time, the place had been called Hoganville. Later it was named St. Peter in honor of a Volga German Named Peter Rome, one of the founders. EMMERAM also became a sister village of Herzog in 1901. Some of the people bought land as far north as the Saline River. Fr. Emmeram Kausler, pastor, said the first Holy Mass there on Christmas day of that year. Unfortunately, this Parish no longer exists, and the people travel to Victoria or other parishes, to attend Church. LORETTO, formerly known as Illinois, in Rush County sprang from Pfeifer and dates from 1902. The name was changed from Illinois to Loretto in 1903... after having been called Marienfeld for a short time. WALKER, was originally settled by Germans from the province of Hanover in Germany. They came from Ohio and Kentucky. The people came to Victoria to Church until 1903 when the parish was established. Many German Russians also attended Church there since that date. HYCINTH branched from Hays and dates back to 1906 while the same year YOCEMENTO was started by people from Hays. ANTONINO, also was established in 1906 by people from Munjor. In 1907 VINCENT began as an offshoot of Herzog. In 1916 SEVERIN was founded by people of Catherine, and in 1913 people from Ellis County went as far west as NESS CITY to seek land and a place to settle. PARK was also settled by Ellis County German Russians in 1905. ANGELUS is an off-shot of Park. How many people remember that CORDIA was founded in 1920 by people from Liebenthal and Schoenchen. Coria no longer exists. In 1922 Ellis and Rush County Volga Germans settled on farms of the Bird Invest-ment Company in Wallace County near the state line to the West. Since that time no new sister villages have been established. (44) THE ARRIVAL OF VOLGA GERMANS IN THE USA (Author Unknown) When Volga German colonists arrived in Russia more than 150 years ago, they were promised freedom from military- service, but after one hundred years had passed, the Russian government wanted the Germans to serve in the army, just the same as the Russians, which was not more than right. But our parents did not want to go to the army, and people from different colonies came together and paid a committee to go to North America and investigate this country. In the summer of 1874 this committee set out. One man with the name of Schwabauer came from the colony of Balzer, and a man named Scheibel came from Kolb. The two others were from Frank and Norka, but I do not know their names. The four men went to Iowa, Kansas and Wisconsin. In about three or four months they came back to Russia. In 1875 Mr. Schwabauer with a group of people from the colonies of Balzer, Dittel and Mohr left for North America. When they arrived, there was nobody at the depot to meet them. They had no relatives, no money, and they did not know if they could find work. On May 28, 1876 my wife and I, along with the following people, left the colony of Dittel: my sister Catherine Margaret; Mr. and Mrs. David Strecker and their four sons; John Miller; Mr. and Mrs. George W. Wamboldt; Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Wamboldt; Mr. and Mrs. George Schmidt and one child; Mr. and Mrs. George Weimeister and one child; Mr. and Mrs. George Kinavater and two children. On June 1st we paid twenty-five Rubles for our railroad tickets from Saratow to Eydkuhnen. This trip lasted eight days. At Eydkuhnen we bought further tickets from an agent named Lisman. The tickets cost one hundred Rubles each. We arrived in bremen by way of Berlin, and left on June 15th for New York on the steamer Konigen Louisa. Our trip across the ocean took eleven days. When we arrived in New York we were met by many immigration agents, some of whom were crying, "Wisconsin has the best farming land." But others said “Kansas" and some said "Nebraska" and some "Iowa." But I had uncles in Red Oak, Iowa, who had come to America the year before, so my wife and I, as well as Mr. and Mrs. George Schmidt, Mr. and Mrs. Weimeister, and Mr. and Mrs. George Wamboldt, paid $2l.OO each for railroad tickets to Red Oak. We also exchanged our Russian money into American money. We received seventy-eight cents for a Ruble, whereas today you will only get from twelve to thirteen cents for a Ruble. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kinsvater went to a town in Wisconsin, and Strecker and Miller went to Little Rock, Kansas. When we arrived in Red Oak, Iowa, my uncles Jacob Wamboldt and Chris Schmidt met us at the depot. We were all very glad to see each other again. We stayed with our uncle for a few days. (46) During this time we had to sleep on the floor because the house in which my uncle lived had only two small rooms and there were not enough beds for all of us. Then, for $5.OO a month I rented one room from my uncle. It was twelve by fourteen feet in size and had a little bed against the wall. The vertical wall boards were covered with paper, but there was no plaster. The place was quite different from the five to ten room houses in which our German people now live. My first job was on a section gang of the Burlington Railroad. The first year I received $1.25 a day, but in 1877 my wages down to $1.00. My wife worked on a farm for $2.00 a week. She worked twelve to fourteen hours a day and also on Sunday. We couldn’t afford to buy coal, so we burned old ties which we got from the railroads. The price of food was as follows: 48 pound sack of flour $2.10 Rye flour 2.10 1 bushel potatoes .50 1 lb salt pork (the only meat .18 we could afford) 1 pound coffee .55 7 pounds sugar 1.00 butter – we could not afford to buy it During the first year in America we would have been happy to walk back to Russia if it had not been for the ocean. That was the time “When a Feller Needs a friend" I myself often thought that I would have preferred five years in the Russian army. The land around Red Oak, Iowa was worth from eight to ten dollars, but today it sells from $200.O0 to $225.00 per acre. In 1883 I heard about the land around Friend, Nebraska. Several of our people were farming around Friend, so I went there in the fall of 1883 and that was the first time I came through Lincoln, Nebraska. Lincoln was at that time a small town and only a few families of our people were here and they lived in one and two room houses. When I came to Friend most of that territory was prairie, and I bought eighty acres four miles southwest of Friend for $l290.00. In 1884 I moved my family from Red Oak, Iowa, to Friend, Nebraska. We stayed here until the fall of 1887 when I sold this eighty acres for $2,200.00. (A t this-point the author tells that he moved to Beaver Crossing, Nebraska. After his children were grown, he and his wife rented their farm and retired to Lincoln, Nebraska, where they bought a nice home on 9th and E Streets. They were living in Lincoln at the time this report was written.) In 1885 Friend had a population of three hundred and most of our people were from the colony of Balzer; others were from Norka and Merkel and one family named Bernhardt had come from Frank. Corn was sold for $.13 per bushel; wheat, $.45; oats $.l5; and eggs, $.08 per dozen; a good horse brought up to $2OO.OO; and a cow from $4O.00 to $70.00. Our people at that time were all poor farmers. There was only one man who was said to be worth three to four thousand do11ars, and we looked upon him as a rich man. But today there are farmers around Friend who are worth up to (47) In the first years I was in America, the farmers planted their corn by hand, cultivated by horse, mowed their wheat with s scythe, and drove ten to fifteen miles -to town with oxen. Some came to town with one horse and one oxen 'hitched together. Today horses are not good enough to drive to town with. Neither is a Ford or a small four cylinder car good enough. People want big eight cylinder cars. In Red Oak there was no German church. Sometimes a pastor named Miller from the Evangelical "Bruder Gemeinde” came to hold services in a schoolhouse, but nobody who smoked could join their church. Then a pastor from the Congregational Church came, and he couldn’t make it go. The same was true of a pastor from the Lutheran Missouri Synod. So far as I know there is no regular church at Red Oak, Iowa. From 1876 to 1880 laboring people had a hard time in the United States. Thousands of men would walk twenty-five to one hundred miles to find work. A man who needed boots would have to pay $7.00 to $l5.OO for a pair, but a carpenter received only $1.25 for ten hours work. This was in the year 1876. From 1880 to 1890 we had good times in America, but from 1890 to 1896 there were hard times. Cattle were the cheapest in the year 1895. You could buy a horse from twenty-five dollars to fifty dollars; a cow from eleven to twenty-five dollars; hogs from 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 cents a pound; eggs from four to six cents per dozen; butter from ten to fifteen cents a pound. The first binder and planter I saw on a farm was in 1882; the first bicycle in 1878. Money consisted of one, two and three cent copper coins, the latter of which looked like silver but wasn’t. Paper money came in denominations of five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five and fifty cents as well as in one dollar bills. The first gold coins I saw was in 1880; the first silver in 1888. My uncles Jacob Wamboldt and Christ Schmidt were the first people to leave the colony of Dittel for the United States in May, 1875. When I left Dittel we had the following officers: Mayor, Jacob Wamboldt; County Secretary, Henry Scheibel; local Secretary, Carl Korg; Pastor, Ernst Karoline; Schoolteacher, a man named Schneider; Assistant teacher, Conrad Steiver. Can somebody tell me who are the officials in Dittel today? (48) This report on the arrival and life of early Volga German colonists in the United States was given to me in Colorado about forty years ago. Unfortunately, the author's name was not written on the paper, and I have even forgotten from whom I received it. If any of the members of our Society can furnish me with pertinen clues, I shall be most grateful. I am particularly interested in knowing the name of the author and the aproximate date when these memoirs were written. I would also appreciate hearing to what extent the facts given here are historically accurate. I have made no changes in the context or the text. However, mistakes in grammar and spelling were corrected. Please mail your com-ments to me at the following address: Mrs. Emma S. Haynes HQ V CORPS SJA Section APO New York 09079 May I further suggest that comparable articles on the ar-riva1 of Black Sea Germans or of Volga Germans from Catholic villages be sent to our President, Mr. David Miller, for inclu-sion in future Workbooks. The large exodus of Russian-Germans to the United States. began after the year 1871. It would cer-tainly be a worthwhile project for our Society to celebrate the Centennial Anniversary of the coming of these early pioneers, by making a special effort to compile their names and place of settlement in North America.

Author L. Frank Baum needn't have tossed "The Wizard of Oz" lead character and supporting canine out of the Jayhawker State to have found a land of similar splendor. We arrived at the Kansas City International Airport and drove 50 minutes to Lawrence, Kansas. This town was born out of political passion. In 1854, following the passage of the Kansas/Missouri Act, a group calling themselves, the New England Emigrant Aid Co., in Worcester, Mass., sent settlers west to settle in the Kansas Territory. Their plan was to keep the territory free from slavery. Before their arrival, traders, explorers and gold seekers had traveled through the area on the Oregon Trail. Then came its most well-known and violent moment in history; the raid by William Clark Quantrill and his men the morning of August. 21,1863. Quantrill's Raid (pro-slavery forces) resulted in 200 deaths, the burning of 185 homes and devastation of the town. After the Civil War, Lawrence boomed. Today, Lawrence is driven by the University of Kansas and historically, it's the main industry and cultural attraction. Crimson and Blue-Noble Friend KU was founded in 1864 is consistently ranked best in the nation. Viva the University of Kansas Jayhawks! KANSAS SPEEDWAY, completed in June 2001, is a $250 million, one-and-a-half-mile tri-oval track , where we watched the running of the Protection One 400, the first NASCAR Winston Cup Series race, at Kansas Speedway, and then saw the NASCAR Bush Series Kansas 300 race. After the race we got a sneak peek at a new Vargas exhibit at the Spencer Museum of Art. Dinner was in downtown Lawrence at Teller's Restaurant.

Later we toured the Kansas Territorial Capitol Museum and its three floors of territorial, Eisenhower and Victorian artifacts. www.LecomptonKansas.com From Lecompton we traveled 15 minutes to TOPEKA to visit the Kansas History Museum to gain a good overview of Kansas and the historic Ward-Meade Mansion. From the prehistoric period through Bleeding Kansas, and the Civil War, the museum offers more than 22,000 square feet of exhibits and interactive displays on the history of Kansas. www.kshs.org/places/musem.htm Topeka CVB 1-800-235-1030 web site www.topekacvb.org In that afternoon we traveled 45 minutes to MANHATTAN for a walk at the Konza Prairie operated by the nature Conservancy. The untouched stand of native tall grass prairie is part of Kansas Flint Hills, the unique ecosystem that stretches north south through central Kansas from Oklahoma to Nebraska. There are only four tall grass prairies remaining in the world- the Pampas of South America, the Steppes of Russia, Africa's Sudan and the Flint Hills of Kansas. Just 15 minutes away is JUNCTION CITY, home of historic Fort Riley, where the Buffalo Soldier Memorial dedicated to the 9th and 10th horse Calvary regiments of the U.S. Army. Several of the town's remaining Buffalo Soldiers joined us at the memorial to talk about their role in this historic unit.Before we departed Junction City, we visited the Geary County Historical Museum to tour the exhibit on Native American Indians. Junction City-Geary Co. CVB 800-528-2489 Our next stop was historic ABILENE. We toured the beautiful 1905 Seelye Mansion which was built by patent medicine entrepreneur A.B. Seelye. Exhibits of his medicines were on display in the mansion and were very interesting. ABILENE was the first cattle boom town and the end of the Chisholm trail. Today it features eight museums including the Eisenhower President Center. Other museums include: The Museum of Independent Telephony, Fashion Museum, American Indian Art Center, Greyhound hall of Fame, Antique Doll Museum, State of Kansas Sports Hall of Fame, Vintage Fashion Museum, Dickinson County Historical Museum.and the Bow Studio and Gallery. Abilene CVB 800-569-5915 We arrived in SALINA and toured the new Rolling Hills Wildlife Conservation Refuge, home of more than 70 rare and endangered species of animals. Salina CVB 785-827-9301 After breakfast we continued down Interstate-70 35 miles to ELLSWORTH, once called the wickedest town in the West. It's much tamer these days, which we discovered when we toured Drover's Mercantile, Johnny Bingo's hats and the other historic sites in the community. Ellsworth is rooted in 1870s history and hosted such notable characters as buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill , Wyatt Earp, Dock Holliday, Bat Masterson and travelin' Sandy. Walking the streets of Ellsworth, this writer got photographed by Ellsworth County Independent reporter with my arm wrapped around handsome cowboy owner of Drover's Mercantile, Jim Gray. Caught in the act and I have the newspaper clipping to prove it! By high noon we were out of Ellsworth and arriving in LUCAS to see the unique Garden of Eden site and grassroots Art Center - a place you have to see to believe, and to understand. The Garden of Eden was constructed of concrete by a Civil War veteran as his interpretation of the battle between good and evil, both in politics and religion. The tour of the Grassroots Arts center showcased its unique display of art made by the common man. I could swear that the author of "The Wizard of Oz" visited this place for inspiration! After Lucas we traveled 45 minutes to RUSSELL, the boyhood home of former Kansas U.S. Senator Bob Dole and the Oil Patch Museum, which offers exhibits on the history of the oil industry in Kansas. Russell CVB 785-483-6960 By later afternoon we headed to VICTORIA, the home of the Cathedral of the Plains church. At one time it was the largest cathedral west of the Mississippi, St. Fidelis, as it is called, is a twin tower Romanesque structure made of Kansas limestone. Next morning we went to HAYS, which offers a mix of Old West, ethnic heritage and modern day attractions. This region of central Kansas is home to the Volga-Germans, then group of early settlers credited with introducing winter wheat to the start. Our visit included the Sternberg Museum of Natural History with the famous "Fish Within a Fish" fossil, the Volga-German House and Historic Fort Hays. Hays CVB 785-628-8202 Twenty minutes away from Hays was Ellis for a tour of Walter P. Chrysler Boyhood Home and Museum, founder of the Chrysler Motor Company. In twenty minutes we were in Wakeeney, the "Christmas City of the High Plains" and also midway between Kansas and Denver. We toured the charming town and its holiday stores and B & B. Wakeeney-Trego Co. 785-743-5785 OAKLEY was a 55- minute ride, where we visited Fick Fossil Museum and its impressive collection of shark teeth found in the area. Kansas was once a great inland ocean. Oakley Tourism 783-672-3136 In COLBY it was the Prairie Museum of Art and history with the Kuska collection of Americana including glass, furniture, ceramics, dolls, and clocks and the Cooper Barn, the largest barn in Kansas. Then it was on to GOODLAND, the center of sunflower growing and processing in Kansas. We saw a 80-foot tall painting of Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflowers. I chose to go back across the state so that I could visit Amelia Earhart's Birthplace museum in ATCHISON. I also went to the International Forest of Friendship with the Amelia Earhart Earthwork created for her 100th birthday celebration. I discovered that Interstate-70 is a wonderful road to explore through Kansas. When it was built in 1956 (remember 2006 is the 50th anniversary) it helped change the face of travel in the United States. Almost 50 years later, this writer found this is a place to slow down and spend time at some of these attractions. Eddie Pfannenstiel by: Oren Windholz "fought against German S.S. Troops on line for 42 days, lost several good buddies, never had a scratch but had hell scared out of me many times. I spent 34 days in the Huertgen Forest in Germany. Fought for two days in Ouren, Belgium and was captured on December 18, 1944." In Ellis County, Kansas a half dozen small ethnic German villages lie outside Hays. These communities were founded beginning in 1876 by settlers who first migrated from Germany to Russia by a manifesto of Catherine the Great. They developed the Volga region of Russia, and after a century of life there, took advantage of homestead land and economic opportunities in America. It was 1938, a few years before the Second World War would touch the lives of everyone in these communities. Edmund "Tuffy" Pfannenstiel was enjoying a beer at the Blue Lantern, a tavern at 8th & Vine in Hays, the county seat where rural folks went for shopping and business and where many worked. He brought a girl along whose cousin came in later and before the night was over he took the cousin Loretta Kuhn home. Two years later they married at the Catholic Church in Antonino, Kansas. Upon their arrival for the ceremony, they found the man in charge had forgotten to light the furnace. It was 15 below and during the ceremony, which still took as long as usual, Loretta had trouble holding onto her flowers. Their chauffeur, fortunately, had the car warmed up which provided a little relief during the drive to Schoenchen for the wedding celebration. It was a traditional German Hochzeit (wedding). The weather continued to be uncooperative as snow set in and a blizzard caused the guests problems driving home. The new couple made it to Hays to spend the night in an apartment loaned to them. After the apartment honeymoon Loretta's dad loaded the newlyweds and wedding gifts in his car and drove them to Salina where Eddie worked as a cook at the Lamer Hotel. Eddie joined the 130th Field Artillery, Kansas National Guard in Salina. The unit was mobilized on December 23, 1940, and on January 2, 1941 he departed for Camp Robinson, Arkansas. Fred Kuhn came to Salina to bring Loretta back to Hays where she made plans to move to Little Rock. There was plenty of recreation and fun for the families in Arkansas as evidenced by pictured filled albums. Eddie cut soldiers' hair on the side to earn spending money. He was a truck driver and his experience from the Lamer Hotel also got him assignments as a cook. His new friend Dale Henderson from Ellis remembered their time as one of the best years of his life. Dale said they became like brothers, there were "six of us guys together." Their wives all lived in apartments together in Little Rock. When the sirens went off at the outbreak of war in December of 1941, announcements were made that all soldiers in town were to report to camp. Dale recalled he and Eddie had been bar hopping and "the more the sirens sounded the more we drank." When they returned to camp everyone was packing and three days later they were gone. His experience as cook and driver took a back seat to the need for combat infantrymen. He was transferred to a replacement unit in the states, departed for England after which, they boarded a "Cattle boat" "scared as hell" and "waded ashore on Omaha Beach in about four feet of water." They passed "Ships, trucks, tanks, guns and men still laying on Beach." They marched about ten miles in and made camp about 10 that night. "Taken up to the front next morning and assigned to the 112th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Division who had lost about 50 percent of its men in combat." The patch of the division is a red keystone, from their home location in the Pennsylvania National Guard. This became known as the bloody bucket. Their first engagement in combat was in "Northern France in the hedge rows." After the Germans evacuated the capital of France, the 28th Division assembled for the famous march through Paris. Battle weary from combat they marched on sore feet that only got worse. General Eisenhower granted the wishes of Gen. Charles de Gaulle to give a show of force in Paris and support of his leadership. They marched out of Paris right back into combat, some units of the division encountering fire that very afternoon. He "fought against German S.S. Troops on line for 42 days, lost several good buddies, never had a scratch but had hell scared out of me many times. I spent 34 days in the Huertgen Forest in Germany. From October 1st till Nov 10th, lost over half of the outfit, moved back to Belgium to rest." The rest ended on December 16th, 1944, when the 5th German Panzer Division, commanded by General Hasso von Manteuffel, attacked the 28th Division which started the Battle of the Bulge, my "last major battle before being captured. Fought for two days in Ouren, Belgium and was captured on December 18, 1944. Fighting was so fierce, the division band and cooks grabbed rifles." Eddie was part of a rear guard assigned to cover the withdrawal of his outfit. As the retreat hit the next town, Weiswampach, the Regimental commander had to personally rout out 30 GIs who were drinking free beer in a tavern dispensed by the grateful locals. According to the "Saturday Evening Post", he reminded them a war was still going on. Their days were probably also numbered. After Eddie and the other men used all their ammo and grenades they took shelter in the second story of a house. Germans searched the house and at first did not discover them. Thinking they were in the clear they continued to hide while the Germans occupied the main floor. A German came upstairs and lit a cigarette, found the men who had no choice but to surrender. "Captain Charles Munson was captured with me and four other boys at Ouren after being trapped for 18 hours by the German S.S. Troops. Hoping their forces could return to rescue them." They walked without food or water to the town of Gerolstein where they were loaded onto the train after receiving a hunk of bread. The livestock cars smelled of manure and slat siding for ventilation allowed the winter wind to blow through. Allied aircraft, not aware that POWs were on board, hit the train which had to stop for repairs. An enraged guard fired into one car. Eddie told his wife the worst part of the whole time as a captive was the train ride. "We were starving and if you had to relieve yourself, it was done where you stood. Spent XMas eve in a box car cold and hungry and thirty of us arrived at the prison camp day after Xmas still hungry, got our first meal in nine days, which was one ladle of soup." They unloaded at Bad Orb and walked to the prison camp. A German officer took Eddie along to use him as an interpreter during questioning of captives. Before landing in France, Eddie wrote home from England. He mentioned the purchase of some wonderful gifts for Loretta, but these were lost in the mail. The letter Loretta recalls most vividly was in January of 1945 from Eddie dated December 12th in which he said he "was getting along fine." Loretta sent him a package with candy, sunflower seeds, other treats and Eddie's wedding band. This was forwarded many times and finally arrived, flattened, back in Hays a year after he was discharged. Worms had eaten the seed meat, everything was battered, but inside was his carefully wrapped wedding ring. He put the ring on and wore it the rest of his life. On January 15th, Loretta returned home from shopping and brought along ice cream cones for two nephews staying with baby Patty. While she was gone a neighbor saw the telegraph agent stop at the house and went over to pick up the telegram so it wouldn't be left with the boys. When Loretta arrived, box under one arm and two cones in hand, the lady gave her the envelope. Eddie was missing in action. The rest of the day the families gathered to console her. She said "it was like a wake. After that every knock at the door, every car that pulled up made me jump." Under the watchful eye and concern of neighbors when Loretta and Patty were not home, the telegraph agent made a stop again in April. He left a note on the screen door, but the wind blew it off. Loretta and two ladies searched and found the notice in the back yard. A neighbor man took her to the telegraph office because she was too nervous to drive, not knowing if it might report Eddie's death. He was listed as a Prisoner of War. Eddie was very quiet about his service and POW experience although the newspaper covered it quite extensively just after the war. His daughter Patty first learned about it from her grade school teachers. She never heard him tell his story directly to until the subject was brought up by her husband Oren. On a few occasions he would only reply, even to old friends, that he was the camp leader because he spoke German. He opened up a little more about himself after the POW medal was issued. A newspaper interview about the medal revealed more information than he had let his family and friends in on for 50 years. He was also interviewed during the release of POWs in Viet Nam. He said, "They will want to be left alone. I feel good for those boys [returning] because I feel like they went through a lot more than I did. They'll have more trouble adjusting to home life than I did. Especially the ones that have been in there five or six years." During that war he was silent when protesters exercised their rights, dearly paid for by him and his buddies. Eddie was a life member and active in the VFW. He served on a committee to erect a war memorial on the Ellis County Court house grounds. Eddie and Loretta raised three daughters and three sons. He enjoyed fishing, camping and his grandchildren. He spent most of his years as a cook. Eddie died in 1990.

All are listed on the Schreiber chart prepared by Dr. Pleve for the village of Norka. The village of Norka was mainly of the Reformed Faith although the Norka booklet published by AHSGR (p13) indicates that there were a few of other faiths. Those who were not of the Reformed Faith included some Lutherans, Baptists and Adventists. There is no mention of any Mennonites. On page 199 of Hattie Plum William's book "The Czar's Germans," she states: In 1875 a small party of Germans from Norka, 7 families and 2 single men, had come to the United States and settled in Ohio where they worked for two years at ditch digging and other similar tasks among the farmers of the community. Meanwhile they were on the lookout for land which two years later they decided upon in Sutton, Nebraska. The surnames, Schrieber, Georg, Mueller, Trieber (Trueber) and Hoffman are all Norka surnames. In my opinion, the people who arrived on the City of Brussels on 28 June 1875 are the poeple from Norka described by Hattie Plum Williams. It appears that after two years in Ohio some went to Sutton and others to Franklin County, Nebraska. According to C. Henry Smith these people went to Bluffton, Ohio which is in Allen county after arriving in 1875. It is about 20 miles northeast of Lima which is the county seat.

Site updated on 14 Mar 2003 at 10:05:05 PM from SCHREIBER GENEALOGY; 2444 people TMG Data Entry Standards These are standard considerations that I use for entering data into my TMG datasets. While I will occasionally do differently than set forth below, I try to stay as close as possible to these standards. This makes it easier to search for something later, makes for a cleaner and neater dataset and prevent a lot a editing later. 1. Names. a. Enter ALL names in full, if known. b. Enter names in normal mixed case, capitalize only normal letters. c. Do not capitalize letters that are not usually (i.e., de Silva). d. If a surname or given name is not known, leave the field(s) blank. e. When a woman has prior marriage(s) and only her married name is known (i.e., Mrs. Jane Doe, enter her Given Name (Jane), leave the Surname field blank, and enter a husband's record and marriage using her married surname (i.e., Doe). f. Accept the prompt to create a married name tag. Leave the default of only the surname (i.e., do not change to add prefix, Given Name, or Suffix unless the change would be different from the U.S. norm. g. Enter a name variation tag showing person's desired name at any time, if different from the Subject (Primary) name. Leave this Surname field blank if it is the same as the Subject (Primary) Name. h. Review ALL name tags for consistency when changing the primary tag. 2. Dates. a. Select the "dd Mmm yyyy" date format in the System Configuration. b. If a date is known to be "old style", enter it in that format. c. Do NOT convert any date for entry in the Date field, i.e., enter "2nd Sunday after Trinity in 1709" in the Date field, acknowledge, and ignore the irregular date notice. d. Do convert dates as necessary for the Sort Date field, i.e., enter "9 Jun 1709" for "2nd Sunday after Trinity of 1709." 3. Places. a. U.S. locations: Detail: Enter the church, cemetery, hospital, etc. as needed. City: Enter the full name of the city or town. County: Enter the name of the county (parish for Louisiana and other places). A full county/parish name includes the word "County" ("Parish") as part of the name to distinguish it from a city/town name. State: Enter the full name of the state. Country: Enter "-USA" unless pre-Revolutionary data. If a smaller pre-Revolutionary geographic name is known, enter it. If a smaller name is not known, use "America." b. Non-U.S. locations: Detail: Enter the church, cemetery, hospital, etc. as needed. City: Enter the full name of the city or town. County: Enter the region or district name. Include 'County', 'shire', or other standard prefix/suffix. State: Enter the province, state, or comparable name. Country: Enter the country name. c. Make all entries mixed case using normal capitalization. d. Make all entries in the English equivalent form. e. Leave unknown or unused fields blank. f. Enter common abbreviations rather than full spelling (e.g., St. Louis, Mt. Sterling). g. Do not abbreviate name modifiers (e.g., county, parish). Spell them in full. h. For independent cities (e.g., Richmond, Virginia or St. Louis, Missouri), enter "-Independent City" as the County name. But if the city is not independent, enter the county name (e.g., Jacksonville, Florida is in Duval County). i. Enter a location as it is known today. If the location is no longer in existence, enter the location as it was at the time of the event. For example, Boonesborough was a town in Madison County, Kentucky, but in longer exists (as a town). Mt. Sterling, Kentucky is now in Montgomery County, Kentucky, but was in Clark County, Kentucky. Before that, it was in Bourbon County, Kentucky, and before that it was in Bourbon County, Virginia; and before that, in Fayette County, Virginia. (This kind of situation should be noted in the introduction to all generated reports). 4. Surety Values. a. - = Information known to be incorrect. b. 0 = Estimates and guesses with little or no support. c. 1 = Data from a source which in known to be less than reliable. d. 2 = Data from a respected document/source (a secondary source) e. 3 = Primary source data. f.

In 1798 census of Graf, we learn that he had a son Anton married to Barbara Spies and Chaisol. Anton had 2 sons Michael and Sebastian, born 1796. Sebastian came to America on the Steamship "Suevia" From Hamburg Germany arriving in New York on Aug. 3, 1876. He was an old man of 80 years old - the oldest male person to come from Russia and settle in Victoria, KS. In 1998 Dr. Igor Pleve, archivist in Saratov Russia sent information on the Graf family to Kevin Rupp which confirmed everything I had in my records, plus he gave us the names of Sebastian's wives. Dr. Pleve also said that the Graf family moved from Graf to Louis Russia in 1817? 1821. In the 1766 census of Graf Russia we learn that Johannes Graf, was the Vorsteher of the colony, that he and his family came from Neustadt, Germany that he was craftsman, a Catholic. Hermann’s I received the 1767 census of Mariental, Russia from Dr. Kramer U Of California and noted there were two Hermann’s listed. 1. Nicolas’s of Luxemburg and Conrad of , France. Through via e-mail I asked Dr. Pleve from which of the 2 Hermann’s Anton Herman descended. Anton is the descendant of Nicolas of Luxemburg. Jacob M. Herrman was one of the finest men in the Liebenthal, KS community. Well versed in English, he could visit on any subject. He was self-educated and a credit to his family, church, and community. All respected him, and his word was as good as gold. A devout Catholic, active in the Lord, a good farmer, this man was proud of his Volga German background. His great-great-great-great-great grandpa Conrad (1716) would have been proud of him. Fr. Raphael Engel as a valiant woman describes Younger Catherine Younger, a great grandma of Florian and Clara’s children. He wrote that she was strongly sanguine, a lively talker, ever progressive in her ways, and that she made friends easily. She was scrumptiously conscientious. She tolerated no filth, was a good cook and economical in the management of the kitchen. She was five feet in height and dark eyes and jet-black hair. She lived to be 90 years old and died Sept. 1, 1949. John Peter Junker, came to USA in 1876, and stayed in Topeka for a year. Martin Junker, father of Catherine came to Ellis Co. in 1877 and settled on a farm 2 miles northeast of Schoenchen. Peter, the father of Martin came to Ellis Co. to inspect the country when he escaped a near fatal accident. While walking through tall grass near the Smoky he suddenly came upon a rattlesnake, coiled up and ready to strike, and hissing. He had never seen a rattlesnake he was amused and teased it not realizing the irate critter could inflict its deadly venom. He died in Topeka of pneumonia in 1877 at age 72. The Knolls the 1766 census of Herzog (Susly) Russia obtained by the Ellis Co. Volga German Society from Igor, archivist of Engels and Marx Russia. The 1798 census of Herzog, Russia obtained by AHSGR in Lincoln, Nebr from the archives in St. Petersburg, Russia. Al Riedels St. Peter Kansas History Book. From the 1766 census we learn: Andreas Knoll was a Catholic, a farmer and he was born in Dafelburg, Germany in 1732. From the 1798 census we learn: Franz Knoll and wife. They had 2 sons and 3 daughters. John J. Linenberger b. 1-6-1867 in Herzog, Russia. In 1878 he came with his parents to the USA and settled in Herzog (Victoria). He married Catherine Brungardt. John was one of he most gifted artistic carpenters in Kansas, and was also endowed with a wonderful talent of stone carving. In that capacity he assisted the stonecutter brought in from outside to do the ornamental work in the Cathedral of the Plains. Examples of his fine artistic woodwork are the two inside the altars in St. Fidelis Church. In the cemetery are numerous native limestone markers carved by this talented man. His German engraving on these markers is beautiful. On the monastery wall built in 1902 is a bas-relief with a two-toned effect, which John achieved by splitting a slab of fencepost limestone through its brown streak and smoothing it so that when he carved into it, the light buff under the brown would show. Ina addition to being a master carpenter, he was also a fine stonemason, stone carver, and native limestone grave maker. It is only recent years that people realize the great skills of this quiet man. He did much of his work for very little pay. John died as a relatively young man. 7-8-1919, age 52. He was the father of the talented church painter, Alex Linenberger, and son of Joseph Linenberger. John Linenberger, was a man who never received the recognition he deserved while he was alive. We know today by his work, which still is evident, that this quiet man was one of the most skilled and talented men among the Volga Germans. The 1798 census of Herzog states that Nicholas Fisch took young Georg Linenberger from Mariental and that Georg married Katrina Merz. This is Han-Joerg the boy the Kirghiz had captured in 1775. He was 21 when he escaped and returned to his family. The Linenbergers were the skilled carpenters, painters; stone masons singers, writers, musicians and other artistic skills in Victoria for the past 120 years. Son Wilbert carried on the traditional carpentry skill of his Linenberger forefathers. Nick J. Pfannenstiel and Lawrence A. Weigel being interviewed by The Hays Daily News Jan. 13, 1957 about their project to preserve precious folk songs for posterity. Nieck J. was considered the finest lead tenor singer the Volga Germans had produced. For 4 years Nick was singing in the church choir’s weddings and funerals. He taught Lawrence many of the songs and today we have to thank Nick that our songs were not lost. Johann Adam Pfannenstiel moved from Mariental to Obermonjour in 1790 as a single man and married in 1791. The Pfannenstiel Family Johannes Valentine Pfannenstiel m. Maria Christine Fussinger Johann Peter Pfannenstiel, b. 20 Dec. 1751) Born and baptized in Kirchheimbolanden, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany. Farmer, captured from Mariental in 1784 by Kirghiz tribesman.

This had to be Han Joerg (Johann Georg), born 1766 - the boy captured by the Kirghiz, and he escaped and married Katarina Merz. They had 3 daughters - Margareta born 1792; Katrina born 1794; Naciana born 1799; and 2 sons Melchoir born 1800 and John Michael b. 1810. Melchoir is the father of Katrina Marg. grandmother of Gilbert Kreutzer. The Knolls Information Sources: The 1766 census of Herzog (Susly) Russia obtained by the Ellis Co. Volga German Society from Igor, archivist of Engels and Marx Russia. The 1798 census of Herzog, Russia obtained by AHSGR in Lincoln, Nebraska from the archives in St. Petersburg, Russia. Al Riedels St. Peter Kansas History Book From the 1766 census we learn: Andreas Knoll was a Catholic, a farmer and he was born in Dafelburg, Germany in 1732. From the 1798 census we learn: Franz Knoll and wife. They had 2 sons and 3 daughters. Andreas Knoll b. 1732 P: Dafelburg, Ger. Franziskus Knoll B: 1763 P: Dafelburg, Ger.

Eugene Riedel B: 1925 Fridoline Kuhn B. 1903 Brungardt Sources of Information: We are most fortunate that in 1998 we have been able to obtain valuable information about our forefathers from the archives of Russia. Dr. Igor Pleve Professor at Saratov Univ and archivist prepared a family linage chart for Jerry Brown, which makes it easy to prepare a family chart. Dr. Pleve used the 1798; 1816; 1834; 1850; and 1857 census records of Herzog, Russia, to prepare the Lineage chart of the Brungardts. I have in my files the 1798 census of Rohleder and Herzog in Russia. 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. 1790 The Family of Rohleder Russia and the 1798 census of Herzog, Russia which were purchased by AHSGR - Lincoln, Nebraska from the archives in St. Petersburg, Russia. Peter Brungardt at age 31 came with his family to Russia and settled in Rohleder. His son Andreas moved to Susly (Herzog) in 1791 from Rohleder according to the census. Andreas Brungardt born 1769 married Anna Maria Doppler - hence the bi-name Dopplers Daltasor etc. Information was also obtained from "Die Herzoger" and "Die Sanct Peter Lalt and ihre Dorf". Sources: 1798 census of Solothurn (Wittman) Russia obtained from AHSGH in Lincoln, Nebraska. They obtained the census from the archives in St. Petersburg, Russia. Jo and Al Riedel provided valuable information going back to Michael Dechant and Rozine Schaffer. Georg Dechant had moved from Obermonjour, Russia to Wittman in 1788 according to the 1798 census of Obermonjour. He was the only Dechant in Wittman in 1798. Georg and Eliz (Bauman) Dechant are the great-grandparents of Jo (Meier) Riedel. It is interesting to note that the 1798 census used in this chart was taken exactly 200 years ago an indication of how truly fortunate we are (The Volga Germans of Ellis Co.) to have this valuable information available to us in our research. The Doerflers This is the city of Samara on the Volga and the Catholic Church of that city. The church was built in 1906 - the architect was Alexander Schtscher-batschjow. Samara is one of the principal cities on the Volga - like Kansas City is to us. This church was very fortunate. It was preserved being the only Catholic Church on the Volga that was not gutted. It was used as a museum. Hopefully it will be used as a church again.

I knew they had settled in Russia in Louis, and had moved to Herzog sometimes before 1798. He is the message I received from Dr. Pleve: "Frank Dreiling, 30, Catholic, a ploughman; arrived at the Luis, Louis colony on the 14th day of June 1766, with his wife Barbara - age 27 and his son Johannes age 2, from Wuerzburg, Karlstadt, Bavaria, Germany. From the 1798 census of Herzog, Russia obtained from the archives in St. Petersburg, Russia we learn hat John Dreilings 1 son was also John Dreiling II. Fr. Michael Dreiling had valuable information available as well. In 1766 Wuerzburg was a Bishopric (a small principality, and Karlstadt, a small town in the Bishopric. today they are both cities in Bavaria. The A.A. Dreiling, Catherine (Linenberger) Dreiling was one of the finest of all Volga German families in the country the past 1122 years. A. A. Dreiling was a church organist, band director, bank clerk, hardware store manager, city councilman, trusted friend and advisor. 5 of their children became noted church organists. Their grandson, Norbert Dreiling is considered the finest lawyer and advisor of all Volga German lawyers. Not only is he the nest attorney, he has been a pillar of strength for a number of civic and non-political organizations. He has been advisor for the Leo Dreiling family for years. St. John's Rest Home in Victoria and Hays, St. John's New Horizons; St. Anthony Hospital, TMP and the Volga German Society all owe "Norb" a debt of gratitude for his tireless efforts in their behalf. His grandfather, A.A. Dreiling who passed away before Norb was born, would have been proud of him. This Dreiling family has done more for the Volga German people of Ellis County, in the way of providing funds for building facilities for the elderly, than anyone. Vetter Hannes (Uncle John) father of Leo J. would have been proud of Leo and grandson John. Leo J. and Albina through hard work, and risk taking, became very wealthy through the oil business. They remained however, very modest and humble people through out their lives. What did they do with much of the money they made? Being concerned about what happened to our elderly citizens, and for the sick, he donated land for the construction of St. Anthony Hospital, which is now part of Hays Medical Center. New Horizons of Hays, an Assisted Living Complex was another project funded by Leo and Albina Dreiling. It is considered the finest facility of its kind in the state of Kansas and I agree. Leo was the driving force in organizing the construction of St. John's Home for the elderly in Victoria. The Dreilings were also instrumental in the establishment of the TMP trust for young students. They made major contributions to Ft. Hays State University. Leo and son John helped the Volga German Society a lot through the years; John like his dad Leo continued the work of the Dreilings. John, like his dad, has a humble disposition. Grandpa John would have been proud of his grandson John as well. Anton M. Dreiling great-grandpa of Elizabeth (Brungardt) Dreiling died on his way to church. It was foggy that March 19, 1927 as he was walking diagonally across the intersection just northwest adjacent to the church. The Joe Wellbrock family on their way to church in a big Nash car struck him, accidentally and killed him. I remember the incident vividly. John N. Wasinger was married twice. His 1st wife was Clara Weigel, great-aunt of Lawrence A. Weigel. From this union 3 children were born: Clara died in 1909 at a very young age, and John married Catherine Dreiling. Their 1st child was Augusta, mother of Elizabeth (Brungardt) Dreiling. From the 1798 census of Herzog, obtained by AHSGR in Lincoln, Nebraska from St. Petersburg, we learn about John Dreiling I, and his wife Anna Maria Wosler, and about his son John Dreiling Ii. Fr. Michael Dreiling also gave valuable information. In 1766 Wuerzburg was a Bishopric (Small principality, and kalstadt a small town in the Bishoprics. The Pfeifers Sources: From the church records of Pfeifer, Russia by Igor archivist, from Engels Russia and from the 1798 census of Pfeifer Russia obtained from AHSGR in Lincoln, Nebraska. Igor wrote: Johannes Pfeifer was one of the first settlers in the colony Pfeifer. He migrated to colony Pfeifer in Russia on June 15, 1767. Greed Catholic, profession – farmer. Adam Pfeifer, grandson of Johannes crossed over to colony Herzog in 1828 with his family and his stepmother Katrina. He was the first Pfeifer in colony Herzog. Michael and Theresa Pfeifer came to the USA on the steamship Mosel in 1876 and settled in Victoria, Kansas. The archives in Russia show that Johannes came from Ulm, Baden-Wertemburg, Germany. Church records of Pfeifer, Russia and the 1798 census of Pfeifer and Herzog Russia. Igor wrote: Johannes was one of the first settlers of Pfeifer, Russia.

approximately five (5) miles east of Wilson, Kansas on Highway 40. Mr. Mattas is engaged in farming and Mrs. Mattas, my mom, supplement the farm income by baking cakes for special occasions. The couple resides in a typical old farmhouse with numerous outbuildings on the site. The house does not have central air-conditioning or heating. The main floor consists of the kitchen, living room, and a single bedroom. There are four (4) bedrooms on the second floor. Jerry Gene Heart, Ernest and Michael's father is married and currently resides at 617 Elm Street, Newton, and Kansas. Mr. Heart is employed at The Bread Basket Bakery, Newton, Kansas and hopes to retire from the company. His wife, Carolyn is employed at Boeing, Wichita, KS. Mr. Heart and Carolyn live in a well-built house several blocks from downtown Newton, Kansas. The house is located near the school. The house is attractively decorated and remodeled prior to their purchase. Befort, Conrad and Anna I would like our family history to begin with my great grandparents, Conrad and Anna Margaretha (Kronnewitter) Befort, along with their two small children, Paulina 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 westward. Conrad and Anna, along with other immigrants, settled in and found 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 build after the style of their forefathers in Russia. The lower part of the building dug into the ground, and the upper part 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 living 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 remaining of her life with her son and daughter-in-law Johan and Barbara Steinbeck. Befort, John C. and Barbara John C. Befort, the son of Conrad Befort and Anna Margaretha (Kronnewitter) Befort, was born on February 18, 1890. Barbara Steinbeck, the daughter of Alois and Elizabeth Steinbeck, 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, June 27, 1912; Albina, September 3. 1913; Clarence, August 4, 1915; William, February 2, 1917, and Alex, October 17, 1919. In the same 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, July 8, 1922; Jane, May 3, 1924; John, JR., September 18, 1925; Ester, August 31, 1926; Bernice, April 24, 1928; Irene December 13, 1929; twins, Alois and Conrad, October 30, 1931; and Francis, October 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 October 1951. He was survived by his wife, Rose (Stecklein) Befort, and infant daughter, Gloria. Irene died August 16, 1965 at 35 years of age, 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 August 22, 1961, age 27 years. He was survived by my mom, Darlene (Hammersmith) Befort and sister, Rosemary, age 4 and me, twenty-three months of age. John and Barbara worked long hours to provide for and rear their family. Barbara would begin her day at four o'clock in the morning to do her baking, laundry and help with all outside morning chores, including milking cows and feeding all animals. During harvest she was in the fields working alongside the men. She was also a seamstress and made most of the children's clothes. Their children received their elementary education at Hyacinth in a one-room school, where one teacher taught all eight grades. 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 from home. However, other times, after a particularly heavy snowstorm, the children looked forward to going to school in a one-horse drawn sleigh. John, my grandfather, would bundle them up in a fur lap robe and don his long 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. My grandfather, John died at 43 years of age on June 30, 1933. Barbara died at 48 years of age of June 30, 1933. Barbara died at 48 years of age on July 1, 1941. They were survived by thirteen of their children. Binder, Joe and Maggie Joe's family can be traced back to 1795. His great-grandfather, Simon, was born in Poxau, Bavaria, Germany, in 1795.

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 ANTON BEFORT ANNA KATHARINA CHILDREN ROSA KONRAD BEFORT ANNA MARGARETHA CHILDREN PETER, PAULINA MICHAEL GRAF CHRISTIAN HERTEL JOHANNES KLAUS MARIA CHILDREN JOHANNES, MARGARETHA JOHANN JAKON LEIKER MARGARETHA CHILDREN JOSEPH, KATHERINE JAKOB PFANNENSTIEL In late July or early August, 1878 the following small group of families settled in MUNJOR: GERHARD BEFORT ELIZABETHA CHILDREN AMALIA, ALEXANDER, KATHARINA, JOHANNES ANTON DECHANT CHILDREN (4 IN FAMILY) KARL DECHANT KATHARINA CHILDREN MARIA, KATHARINA, ANTON JAKOB ENGEL (6 IN FAMILY) PETER KLAUS KATHARINA CHILDREN ANTON, ALEXANDER, KASPER, JOHANNES, JOSEPH, GEORG JOHANNES PFANNESTIEL ELIZABETHA CHILDREN JOHAN JAKOB, ROSA, MARGARETHA KONRAD RUPP ANNA EVA CHILDREN ANNA MARGARETHA, KATHARINA, AMALIA, JOHANNES, BARBARA, ANNA-MARIA JOHANNES STOECKLEIN KATHARINA CHILDREN ALEXANDER, AUGUST, RAYMUNG, JOSEPH Two weeks later came: ANTON GABEL ANNA KATHARINA CHILDREN KATHARINA, ANTON, SEBASTIAN, HELENA JOHANNES GABEL KATHARINA The last group of early MUNJOR settlers were part of the Joseph Linenberger party which left Herzog and Marienthal, Russia on August 20, 1878. Landing in New York on the “Leipzig” of the North-German Lloyd line, they traveled cross-country by train and arrived in Victoria on September 15, 1878. They were part of the last large body to immigrate to Ellis County and consisted of the following families: ANTON DENNING KATHARINA CHILDREN GEORG, JOHANNES, ANNA, BARBARA, MARIANNA ADAM ERNEST ANNA CHILDREN NIKOLAUS, FRANCISKA, MARGARETHA, KATHARINA, ELIZABETHA, KATHARINA JOHANNES ERNST KATHARINA CHILDREN MARGARETHA JOSEPH GASSMAN KATHARINA CHILDREN JOSEPH, SIMON, PETER KONRAD, ANNA, ELIZABETHA ANDREAS KORBE EVA CHILDREN DAVID, KATHARINA, NIKOLAUS, JOSEPH, MICHAEL, JOHANNES, MARGARETHA, BARBARA, MARIANNA PETER PFANNENSTIEL KATHARINA CHILDREN MATHIAS, ELIZABETHA, JOHANNES, KATHARINA, PETER, NIKOLAUS, ADAM, PETER, MARTIN 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?"

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. 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.

Anna Margaret KRONEWITTer born 10 Aug 1856, OBERMONJOU, RUSSIA, MARRIED Conrad BEFORT DIED 12 Aug. 1914, MUNJOR, Ellis Cnty., K.S. Anna died 1 Aug 1923, MUNJOR, Ellis Cnty, KS. Anna Margaret KRONEWITTer BEFORT's death records list her father as Gerhard KRONEWITTer (sic) and her mother Christina, no maiden name was given. Anna Margaret and her husband Conrad BEFORT moved to the U.S. in 1876. Informant (Barbara STEINBOCK). 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. 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.

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.

Grandmothers are mothers who are grand, Restoring the sense that our most precious things Are those that do not change much over time. No love of childhood is more sublime, Demanding little, giving on demand, More inclined than most to grant the wings On which we fly off to enchanted lands. Though grandmothers must serve as second mothers, Helping out with young and restless hearts, Each has all the patience wisdom brings, Remembering our passions more than others, Soothing us with old and well-honed arts. E-mail: memheart2003@yahoo.com Birthday: 24 Sep 1959 Gender: Female Homepage: http://www.geocities.com/memh1977 Home Phone: 785-628-2174 When I was growing up in Wilson, Kansas, I could see a wheat field from my bedroom window, and I marked the seasons by its growth and colors. My view now is of city streets, and I sometimes wish I could see that wheat field every day as a reminder of the pioneer families who settled the Midwest. Many pioneer children grew up on hardscrabble homesteads, working along their parents in harsh conditions to nurture the growth of crops and cattle. In searching the lives of children on the prairie however I did not hear many complaints. These children were needed by their families and had a strong sense of purpose. Because they knew no other life, they did not feel deprived. The prairie was their home. Their optimism, steadfastness, and hard work have given those of us fortunate enough to live in this beautiful part of a proud legacy. When I first read about my great grandparents, Konrad Befort and Anna Margaretha Kranawitter, I knew I wanted to write about her pioneer childhood. I liked her spunk and spirit. She dared to dream, and she saw dreams come true. I hope readers will enjoy her story as it is told here and, through her, will gain a new appreciation of what it meant to grow up on the prairie. Pauline Befort scrambled down the steps of the train, planted her feet on the muddy ground, and looked around. So this was Kansas! No trees blocked the view, and she liked the bigness of it. Peter Befort followed her off the train. Pauline stepped cautiously, avoiding mud puddles so she would not get her dress or shoes dirty. Then their mother, Margaretha (Kranawitter) Befort, appeared at the train doorway carrying a heavy travel satchel. She looked tired from the trip. She nodded, thenlifted her stylish black skirt and slowly descended the steep train steps. "Daddy!" Paulina cried, catching sight of her father driving up in the wagon pulled by the family mules. She ran to meet him and thre herself into his arms the moment he jumped down. Konrad Befort embraced his family. He grinned as he kissed mama. They had last seen him three months earlier when he loaded the family's belongings into a train boxcar, urged the mules abroad, and then hopped in himself for the long train to Kansas. Folks back home in Kansas said Daddy had "land fever" because he had decided to become a homesteader. The 1862 Homestead Act allowed him to file a claim on 160 acres of public land. If he built a home and cultivated the soil, in five years the land would be his. Men or women who were single or heads of households could file a homestead claim as long as they were twenty-one and were either citizens or immigrants who planned to become citizens. Early in the spring of 1885, Daddy found his claim near the town of Cozad in central Kansas. He paid the ten-dollar filing fee and set to work. His first task had been to build a house so he could send for his family--and now they were here. Everyone settled into the wagon, and Daddy turned the mules toward the northwest. When they stopped several hours later, Paulina woke up from a nap. She thought they must be int he middle of nowhere. She recalled in her memoir, "I can still see the homestead as it looked when we pulled into it that day--just two naked little soddies sqatting on a bare, windswept ridge...Not another building in sight, not a tree, nor an animal, nothing but grassy flats and hills." The "soddies" were built of blocks of compacted sod Daddy had cut fromt he earth. The smaller one was a stable. The other was a twelve-by-fourteen foot room; their new home. It was smaller than you could imagine. Paulina stared at the tiny house. The wind whipped around them, its sound a mournful wail. For a moment she felt unsure about this new place. Then she saw her cat, Midnight, who had made the trip with Daddy and the mules, and a moment later she and Peter were running through the prairie grass, laughing. darting ahead of Mama and Daddy, they explored the house, happy to see the cookstove and the familiar belongings from their old house. Later they walked with Mama and Daddy to see the field Daddy was readying to plant wheat. Daddy kept saying this was land where anything would grow. Mama was quiet. The only thing she asked about was a school, but Daddy said the girls were still too young for school, and by the time they were old enough, he figured there would be one. Thinking back on that first day, Paulina realized that, for herself and Peter, "it was all new and interesting, but to Mama it must have seemed poor and desolute. She had grown up among the green fields and woods of Russia, where she lived in a big white house. She liked nice things, good food, pretty clothes, handsome furniture. I know she must have been nearly crushed by the unexpected bigness of the prairie, the endless blue of the sky, our rough, homemade furniture, and almost total lack of neighbors." Most settlers were crushed by the experience of homesteading. The plains and prairies of the Midwest, stretching from the Missouri RIver on the eat to the Rocky Mountains on the west, challenged the most hardy of pioneers. It was country where the wind blew constantly, where few trees grew, where it froze in the winter and baked in the summer, and where water was scarce. As Paulina would learn, anyonw who settled there eventually got aquainted with drought, grasshoppers, rattlesnakes, stampedes, prairie fires, dust storms, hail, floods, tornadoes, and blizzards. Even when government started the great homestead giveaways to attract settlers to the middle part of the country, many folks wondered why anyone would bother. Most pioneers just passed right through the Midwest on their way to the Far West. Those who stayed were often defeated. One farmer scrawled across the cabin door of his deserted claim, ""250 miles to the nearest post office, 100 miles to wood, 20 miles to water, 6 inches to hell. Gone to live with wife's folks." But whatever Mama thought of the homestead, she was there to stay. She knew what the land meant to her husband. Daddy had been poor all of his life. His father had died when Daddy was young, and his mother struggled to raise her big family. This was a chance to have something of his own. Mama could see how hard he had worked to build the hosue and to start breaking up the tough sod. She would do her part as well. According to Paulina, "Mama was the kind who always did the best she could with what she had." For the window on each wall, Mama made curtains out of bleached flour sacks on which she embroidered red birds. She arranged the bed, cradle, the cooking stove, and sewing machine. She made shelves out of boxes and displayed the English teacup that had been part of her grandmother's wedding dishes. Last of all, she hung the gilt-framed marriage certificate over the marble-topped bureas. Paulina thought it made the soddy look elegant. Daddy also helped make the soddy feel like home. He built Peter and Paulina a trundle bed, which slid under their parent's bed during the day. He laid a wooden floor--something most sod houses didn't have. He plastered and whitwashed the walls so the room would feel bright. When Paulina asked Daddy why he did not build them a wood house, he said the lumber would have to come by railroad and would be too expensive. In this part of the country settlers used the one building material that was cheap and plentiful--unplowed prairie. They jokingly called it "Nebraska Marble." It had taken Daddy an acre of sod and much hard work to construct their soddy, but the thick root system created walls that were strong and long lasting. Daddy pointed out the advantages of a soddy. Wood houses usually had no insulation, so they were cold in winter and hot in summer. Sod provided natural insulation, so soddies were more comfortable. Soddies provided natural insulation, so soddies wre more comfortable. Soddies offered more protection than wood houses from fire, wind and tornadoes. Most families kept their soddies as storm shelters or stables, even after they built wood houses. Some like them so much they continued to live in them even when they could afford wood houses. Mama did not intend to stay in the soddy. Soddies had advantages, but they also had drawbacks. Dirt sifted down through the roof and run along the floor, soaking everything and turning the floor into mud. Even after the rains ended, the roof could leak for days. Few homesteaders ever got used to wearing boots and carrying umbrellas inside their soddies when the sun was shining outside. Like other settlers, the Beforts soon learned that rain was only one of the problems of living in a sod house. Newly cut sod often housed fleas. Bedbugs came out at night, crawling all over everything and biting anyone trying to sleep. Bedding had to be dragged outside, the bugs picked off, and then, Paulina remembered, "every crack and crevice in the walls and furniture gone over with chicken feathers dipped in kerosene." At least the Beforts did not have the experience of one Kansas settler, who awoke one morning to find the floor, ceilings, and walls covered with inch-long worms. She had to cover her hair and the water pail and sweep up the worms outside. It was bad enough that the Beforts had to put up with flies, mosquitos, and moths. They were plentiful inside as outside because the family could not afford window screens and it was warm in the soddy with the windows closed. When Mama cooked food on summer days, the soddy became unbearably hot. Usually the family would set the table outside and eat there. The girls thought this was like having a picnic. It was Paulina's job to keep the flies "off the table with a flychaser made of newspaper fringe sewed to a long stick." Field mice and snakes burrowed through the ceiling and walls of the soddy, looking for warmth. Mama shuddered when she hear stories about snakes crawling into babies' beds. Settlers told of snakes dropping down from the rafters, sometimes plopping onto the table during dinner. Before getting out of bed, most people first looked under it and then put their fet on the floor. Mama could tolerate everything except the rattlesnakes. Since hoemsteaders had invaded the snakes' territory, the snakes could not be blamed for being there. At the same time, settlers could not live side by side with poisonous ones. Rattlesnakes, some six feet long, were common. One dady when Mama was outside a baby chick in the nearby grass suddenly started to squauk. It came running toward Mama, who scooped it up. At that moment, she saw the rattler had bitten it. She yelled for Daddy, who was in the house. He ran out carrying the teakettler full of boiling water and threw it on the snake, scalding it to death. By then the chick was dead. Mama kept thinking it could hav been one of the girls who got bit. Finding enough fuel to burn for cooking was another problem. The early pioneers had gathered buffalo chips--dried patties of dung left by the millions of buffalo that had romed the plains for a thousand years. They called these "prairie coal." But the buffalo were all but gone. Droughts had destroyed their food supplies; white hunters had slaughtered them. Daddy said that soon they would have cattel to supply cow chips. In the meantime, he chopped up sunflower stalks and corncobs for fuel. The chopping was hard work, and neither stalks nor cobs made fires as hot and long lasting as chips did. As for water, Daddy told Mama they would have their own well just as soon as they had enough money to pay a well digger. In the meantime, a nearby shallow pond had water in it for part of the year. They could use it for the animals and to wash clothes, but it was not clean enough for drinking or cooking. For that, they had to haul water form the neighbor's well, two miles away. Paulina learned to conserve every drop of water: "We used it sparingly indeed; saving the washdaddy rinse water, the water we washed vegetables in, even the bath water, to pour into the chicken trough. But no matter how careful we were, the water barrels seemed always nearly empty." Several times a week Daddy loaded the barrels into the wagon to visit the neighbor's well. Paulina and Peter would beg to go along, but Mama almost always said no. She had been raised with a strong sense of respectability. "I'll not have my daughter going off the place unless you're decently dress in shoes and stockings," she would say. Photo taking was a serious event for the pioneers. One of the reason that the families did not smile was because most of them did not have healthy teeth and taking the picture and getting it right the first time was a difficult process and done sparingly. Location: Starting at Wamego go 1 mile north on Highway 99. SPECIAL THANKS: A special thanks goes to Katie Glynn who has went through church records, old newspapers, obituaries, etc. to try and get the correct information for this cemetery. She stated there are still almost 100 graves that could not be read or information could not be found on them. Thank you Katie for all your hard work.

Under the leadership of Balthazar 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 SEPTEMBER rated 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 town site in Section 25, Town ship 14, Range 18 in Wheatland Township. 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 OCTOBERober 11, 1882 at the suggestions of John Schuler, 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 AUGUSTust 15, 1888. Controversy became so intense it pilled over into court litigation. In JANUARYuary, 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, February 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; DECEMBERHANT; 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 Linen Berger 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 handed: 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.

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 herein 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 Balthasar Brungardt 108 families left saratov by train on July 8, 1876. Their body consisted of departures from Herzog, Obermonjour, 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, and 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 Conrad Befort and his wife Anna Margaretha and their children Peter, and Paulina.

Anton Rupp was born 1747 in Germany, and died 1798 in Kolb, Russia. He married Anna Elisabeth (Kollas) Kalas in Germany. She was born 1755 in Germany. Notes for Anton Rupp: This informatiaon was found in the 1798 Kolb, Russia census. It states that Johannes Rupp was ill for a long time and died around 1798 in Kolb, Russia. He left a widow, Anna Elisabeth ??, no maider name was given for Anna. He leaves behind three children by Anna, namely Johann George, which at this time is suspected to be the line of this family, Anna margareta and Anna Christina. It is led to believe that when the Volga-Germans left certain villages in Russia, 1876, that was where they were from. Census lists going back to 1798 show no Rupp's listed in Obermonjour, from which they left in 1876. So because of this it can be believed that they did travel from one village to another, Kolb, Russia is a village close to Frank and Walter, it is also an evangelical village, which is Luthern.

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 Abt. 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 b. 1768 (age 30) since Johann Adam b. 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. More about Peter Pfannenstiel: 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. Children of Peter Pfannenstiel and Maria ? Maria Elizabetha Pfannenstiel, born 1755 on Ober-Manderscheid-Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany; Adopted child. She married Jacob Pesch January 07, 1795 on Mariental (Tonkosshurovka), Samara, Russia, born Abt. 1754. More about Ana Maria Pfannenstiel: Immigration: June 16, 1766, Mariental (Tonkoshurovka), Russia Peter Pfannenstiel, born 1758 in Ober-Manderscheid-Treir, Rhineland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany, died Bef. 1798 in Mariental (Tonkoshuroka), Samara, Russia. Notes for Peter Pfannenstiel: Peter is not listed in the 1798 census so he either died or was murdered and/or captured by the Khirgiz in 1774 with his father. Trier, Rhineland-Palz, Germany was probably a staginga rea and thus many people had two towns listed, one probably being home town and the other the staging area. THere also were far more people thatd had Trier listed as their point of origin than probably lived in the relatively small town of Trier. Thus, the individuals lived as having originated in Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany may have had their home village elsewhere.

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 Abt. 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 b. 1768 (age 30) since Johann Adam b. 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. More about Peter Pfannenstiel: 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.

NORMA JEAN DECHANT. Genealogy of Fredrich and Lucy Werth Co-Founders of Schoenchen, Kansas By Rev. Alvin V. Werth, O.F. M. Cap., M.A. Saint Joseph Catholic Center 215 West 13th Street Hays, Kansas 67601 Three days after ALVIN WERTH's death, his guardiann EARL MEYER began his funeral homily saying, "It would be difficult for anyone on such short notice and. with such limited time to offer an adequate reflection "on Alvin's long and full life. Three months later it is still difficult." "Anyone who knew Fr. Alvin will recall," Fr. Earl continued, "that he was meticious and extracatious in planning. all the details of his life." Perhaps it is not so well known that he was also very carerful in documenting most of it. Alvin understood the value of documentaation for any history, and left 15 cartons of it to be digested at some future date. One of the most precious of these records is a 56-year-old motionpicture of his first mass at Schoenchen. He also left reams of notes on local and family history, thousands of sermonds, and a box after box of photographs. There are also about 500 cassette tapes which will need to be carefully sifted before deciding what to keep. Many were taped off Mother Angelia's Eternal Word Television Network, which he loved to watch in his last years, but many others are recordings of interviews he conducted over the years of family members and other people from earlier eras. Promptled by the 80-year-old four-seasons candle which, at the urging of Alvin's mother, had burned at Alvins' baptism, his first Mass, his 25th and 50th jubilies, and now his funeral, Earl summed up his life byy referring to and commenting on four overlappping seasons of Alvin's life: his family, his priesthood, his mature study, and his retirement. Alvin, the 3rd oldest of the 12 children of Nikolaus and Magdalena (Hertel) Werth, was born 29 Augg. 1907 and baptised under the name Vincennt the following day by Fr, Charles Minig. DUrinng high school at Hays Catholic College, he played the violin in the school orchestra and sang in the Messiah chorous at the normal school (now Ft Hays State University. At the age of 18, he graduated first in his class from junior college at Hays Catholic College, and soon after left for the noviate at Herman. Earl added that "In one sense he never left home. He spoke of his parents often and as though they were still alive. He followed every detail, almost daily events of his extended family and the activities of his hometown. More than once, when he was too sick or too waek to make a trip to Victoria, when news came that a grandniece or grandnephew was being married in Kansas City or Chicago; he instantly recovered and enjoyed the trip." Alvin's sudden death cut short the completion of a family-related project he had been working on for some time, a genealogical study of the Werth family he was nearly ready to take to printers. Alvin received minor orders from. Bp. John M. McNamara in Cumberland on 4 Oct. 1930, and the three major orders from Bishop Francis Tief in May of 1932: subdiaconate May 1 at Concordia, diaconate May 5 at Victoria, and priesthood May 8 at Hays. "He was rightly proud of being the first priest froom his home parish at Schoenchen." Fr. Earl commented. "He enjoyed his work as a priest and found personal fulfillment in his priestly duties which were many and varied. He was a pastor, a chaplain, an administrator, a religious superior, and an author in Maryland, Missouri and his native Kansas. Even late in the hospital to visit the sick; and everyone got a personal prrayeer and Fr. Alvin's special blessing." Alvin was happy in all of the pastoral assignments he held between 1933 and 1977 and corresponded withmany people in all of these places. Shortly before attending the Cresaptown MD centennary in 1985, he wrotte some old friends that he doubted whether his health would permit his traveling there, but that he would be there in spirit. "If I don't get to see you again in this life." he wrote, "I'll see you. in heaven, where there is no more pain and suffering, nothing but ssupreme happiness." In his final bulletin at Antonio, Alvin said that he left with a heavy heart because "I like it here," but added quoted Mac. 6, 22, that he had submitted to his provincial's will".. . . in a noble manner, worthy of his years, the dignity of his advanced age, and the merited distinction of his gray hair." During the course of his 80 years, Alvin seemed to have left the U.S. four times: at lesat there are references to that many foreign trips in the many boxes of documentation he left behind: a tour of 15 Italian cities, with the Fratellanza Society of St. Louis in August of 1968; a pilgrimage retreat at Our Lady of the Cape in Three Rivers, Quebec, in May 1969; a trip to Puerto Rico in 1980; and his goldenn jubilee tree in Munich, Heidelberg, Frankfort and various places in Switzerland and Austria in August of 1983. Winter for Alvin, Earl said, was a retirement, which was neither bleak no cold, but rather thoroughly enjoyed. "He dabbled into family history and church history. He renewed old aquaintances and made new ones. He relished the opportunity to observe and comment on the busy life around him... He spent many hours in the chapel. He seldom missed a service or a devotion in churchh. For all practical purposes the only television he watched were programs on religion...His interests even in retirement were apostolic." ALVIN WERTH had many periods of illness during his life, but her was able to keep active till the day of his death June 27, 1988. After a normal day's activities, he asked to be taken to the hospital and, to the surprise of even the doctor in attendance, died shortly thereafter. The origin and history of the name WERTH The surname WERTH, sometimes spelled Woerth, comes from the Gothic surname Worth. Werth, according to THE CLASSIC GERMAN DICTIONARY. (Follet Publishing Company, Chicago, IL.,) means value, worth. In 1968, this writer was in London, England, I found numerous entries of the surname Werth in the London telephone directory. I consulted a professor in a London Museum about the name Werth and he replied that a youngster he had studied about warlord general from Sussex, England by the name Werth. The Werth Coat-of-Arms (by John W. Ward and Co., 171 Meeting St. Charleston, SC) shows that people of northwest Europe having the surname Werth belonged to the Saxton tribe. In 1983 I toook a tour through Germany and Switzerland. I visited my friends, Rita and Wolfgand Shafers, in Warburg, Westphalia, Germany. In a Warburg cemetery I found a well-kept lot in which the family members of Henry Werth were interred. I also spoke with two gentlemen by telephone in Warburg who were namned Werth; one was a printer and the other was a dealer in lumber. The surname Weth also appears in Hesse, Bavaria, Baden-Wurtemburg, Germany. It appears in the cantons of Bern and Graubunden, Switzerland (B. Nussbaumer, Altmanwweg 1, CH-9012, St. Gallen, Switzerland). The WERTH FAMILY HEREITAGE BOOK (piblished by Beatrice Bayley, Inc., Sterling, PA, 1981) lists 223 Werth families in the USA. The Hays telephone directory of. 1980, in addition to Werth families that I know who live in other states, number 108 Werth families not listed in the WERTH FAMILY HERITAGE BOOK. To the best of my knowledge, there are at least 331 Werth families in the United States in 1987. The birth place of Fredrich and Lucy (Ebel) Werth is Schoenchen, Russia, located on the east side of the Volga River in the District of Samara, Russia. Schoenchen was founded there in 1770, approximately 40 miles northeast of Katharinenstadt. Schoenchen, a catholic village, was located between two Catholic villages, Solothurn (Wittman) to the north and Zug (Gattung) to the south. By 1773 Schoenchen had 54 families. In 1860 it had a population of 1200, and in 1918 it had 3194 parishioners. Capuchin priests were the first to minister ot the people of Schoenchen, followed by George Leibham, a native from German colony near Odessa, Russia, was a pastor at the time when many coolonists left for America. He built a beautiful stone church in 1903-04. He died in Schoenchen, Russia in 1910. The S.S> Suevia departed from hamburg, Germany on July 19, 1876. It landed in New York August 3, 1876. On the ship were a number of Volga German people who come from Schoenchen, Russia on the Volga. Among them were: WERTH-Fredrich and his wife Lucia and 4 children. They settled in Ellis Co. Kansas in the town of Schoenchen. The grandparents of Fredrich Werth were Carl and Catherine (Kern) Werth. THe death certificate of John Peter Werth (State of Kansas Division of Vital Statistics, 26-641) sates that Carl Werth and Catherine Kern are the parents of John Peter Werth, who was born on July 21, 18366 in Schoenchen, Russia. John Peter Werth was the youngest brother of John Werth. Therefore (concluded that the parents of JOhn Werth were Carl and Catherine (Kern) Werth. They lived and died in Russia. John Werth (1827-1875) married Anna Mertz in Schoenchen, Russia. They lived and died in Russia. John Werth farmed on a small scale and hauled the daily water supply for the village of Schoenchen from the Volga River. John and Anna (Mertz) Werth were the parents of Frederich Werth, who was born on August 15, 1846. PARENTS OF LUCY EBEL JOHN HENRY AND CLEMENTIME (LEIKAM) EBEL The father of Lucy Ebel was John Henry Ebel (the surname Ebel appears in Alsace-Lorraine, France), and her mother was Clementina Leikam. John Henry Ebel was born 1820 at Schoenchen, district of Samara, Russia. He was an attorney and a district judge. Fredrick Werth Sr., the son-in-law of John Henry Ebel, called him "Der grosse Richter" (district Judge). For a number of years John Henry Ebel kept records at Schoenchen of all marriages, births, deaths, funerals, and handled other legal documents. At the end of each year he sent all records to the city of Sarratove, Russia, where they kept on file. John Henry Ebel was also a grain merchant; he bought and sold wheat in Russia. John Henry and Clementina Ebel lived and died in Russia. THeir daughter Lucy Ebel was born Nov. 1, 1850. She married Fredrich Werth, Sr. on Sept. 27, 1867. VOYAGE TO AMERICA A few years after their marriage, together with other emigrants of Schoenchen, Munjor, and Liebenthal, Frederich and Lucyy Werth, and their childre, left the upper Volga region in June, 1876, to tavel to Saratov. After the emigrants arrived at Sartov, they boarded a train to Warsaw, Poland, Berlin, and Hamburg, Germany. They left Hamburg on the ship Suevia on July 19, 1876 and arrived a;t New York after a voyage of about three weeks. In New YOrk they made arrangements with Mr. Adam Roedelheimer, an agent of the Kansas Pacific Railraod, for transportation to Ellis County, Kansas, for the sum of $11.52 per passenger. They arrived in Hays, Kansas at 10th and Main Street, during the first part of August, 1876. On August 14, they arrived at Big timber Township in Rush County, Kansas and settled a few miles north of Liebenthal, Kansas. On Sept. 6, 1876, Fredrich and Lucy Werth's only daughter, Clementina, was born in a hastily impoverished sod hut. During May of 1877, the Frederich Werth family helped to found Schoenchen, Kansas when they moved to the Wouthwest Quarter of Section 28, Township 15, Range 18, which is still the site of Schoenchen in 1988.
