Abraham and Agatha Warkentin
1. Abraham Johann WARKENTIN was born in 1792 in Prussia. He died in 1851 in Tiege, Molotschna, Russia. Abraham Warkentin married a Widow Kroeker in Tiege. There is information that indicates Eva Neufeld is the "Widow" Kroeker and that she was born in 1773 making her 19 years older than Abraham. I believe that the "Widow Kroeker" had died by 1830 and Abraham had remarried a young woman named Agata who's maiden name at this point is unknown. There is no evidence that Abraham and the "Widow" Kroeker had any children. In 1835 her children from her first marriage to Peter Kroeker were already in their late 20's as indicated by the census below. The young woman Agatha age 25 in the 1835 census would be the mother of the children listed below.
The family is listed as the owners of Wirtschaft 4 in Tiege in the 1835 census: "Abraham Johann Warkentin, age 44, wife Agata age 25, children from second wife, Johann Warkentin age 4, Abraham 3, Helena 2. Step-sons Peter Peter Kroeker, age 36, 1830 to Margenau and Abraham Peter Kroeker, age 29, wife Elizabeth 28 and daughter Helena 2".
Johann Warkentin and Agatha had the following children:
