Hello, I am the grandson of Daniel Webster Klaassen(born March 25, 1909 and died March 9, 1981) and his wife Tina (Klassen)Klaassen(whose parents were Peter and Margaret Klassen).A lot of our relations came from the Beaver Flat/Turnhill section of Saskatchewan, but know that we came from US, probably around Kansas area.Before that, from Russia. My mother is Fern(Klaassen)Longo, and her siblings are Doyle Klaassen, Erla(Klaassen)Friesen, Della(Klaassen)Roberts, Ormond Klaassen, Jewel(Klaassen)St Laurant.
Daniel's parents were Abraham Klaassen and Maria Klaassen(but Abraham was known as A.R.D Klaassen to differentiate him from other Abrahams) and they came to Canada in or around 1917 and settled in Beaver Flat/Turnhill, Sk.They had 17 children with most of them living to adulthood.
Marie Klaassen married John Lorenz Helen Klaassen married David Ewert Peter Klaassen died in infancy Frank Klaassen married Augusta Krewall Albert Klaassen married Helena Rempel Abraham P.J Klaassen married Marie Dyck, and second wife was Maria Bergen.
