I am looking for my Great Grandfather Kornelius Krause, I have nothing of his ancestry (have a lot on Agatha Dueck).
Kornelius was born Jan 18, 1856. Married Agatha Dueck February 17, 1883 Died in Rosenhof, Schoenfeld Colony Sep 7, 1901
Kornelius had bought two large farms in Gnadenfeld, Molotschna Colony had the wagon(s) loaded with the household goods ready to move there from Rosenhof, Schoenfeld Colony, when he died of either a stroke or heart attack.Wife Agatha then moved to Gnadenfeld with daughter Agatha, sons Cornelius and Jacob, and daughter Susanna (my Grandmother Susanna Krause Rempel).Widow Agatha Krause thought she was going to be unable to run the farms, so she ended up marrying the hired farm hand Heinrich Dirks, who was much younger than she.Agatha Krause Dirks then had three more children by Heinrich:Marie (Mary Janzen)and Heinz.(Mary has written My Memories and The Batum Story.)
Susanna Krause Rempel emigrated to the US Sept 1923 with her husband Aron Rempel from Gandednfeld, along with their children Marie, Aron, Agatha (my mother), Susanna, and Willy was born in Turkey.Herman, Aunie, and Dietrich were born in the US.
Agatha Dueck Krause Dirks emigrated to the US with husband Heinrich and 3 children.They settled in Connecticut, I think.
Agatha Krause married Carl Rempel, and they emmigrated to USD.I think they also settled in Connecticut.
Cornelius and Jacob Krause married Rempel sisters and emmigrated to Canada.
