Abraham Janzen / Jantz 1856/1857-1934
Looking for the parents and lineage (back, not forward) of Abraham Tobias Janzen born 1/6/1857 in Ostrog, Volhynia, Russia. He may also be an Abraham Jantz born 12/25/1856 in Karolswalde / Karlswalde, Volhynia. We all know the dates were changed by 1-2 weeks when they arrived in the U.S.
Abraham moved to the Molotschna colony at some point and emigrated to Pawnee Rock, KS in 1879. He married Elizabeth Froese (born 12/12/1852 or so in Landskrone, Molotschna) on 12/12/1883. They move to Corn, Washita County, Oklahoma in 1894.
I'm a Ph.D. writing a book on my family's mennonite immigration and a history on OK Territory. Am happy to trade any info I have, send you a copy of the book when published, send you chocolate, buy your car.... HELP!!!
