Abraham and Agata Warkentin

16. Abraham WARKENTIN was born in 1792 in Prussia. He died in 1851 in Tiege Russia.

 Abraham Warkentin married a Widow Kroeker. The Warkentin family is listed as the owners of Wirtschaft 4 in Tiege in the 1835 Molotschna 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"."

After reading it closely, I have come to the conclusion that Widow Kroeker had died before 1835 and Abraham had remarried a young woman named Agata, maiden name at this point is unknown. The young woman Agata would be the mother of Abraham's known children.

He married to Eva Neufeld after 1813.  Eva Neufeld was born in 1773 making her 19 years older than Abraham. She died before 1831. Eva is believed to be the "Widow" Kroeker referred to as Abraham's wife. The census also refers to an Agata age 25, mother of Johann, Abraham, Helena and Jacob.

Abraham Johann Warkentin and Agata had the following children:

2 i. Johann Warkentin born in 1831 in Tiege, Russia. He lived in Orloff, Russia.
+3 ii. Abraham Warkentin was born on 8 May 1832.
+4 iii. Helena Warkentin was born in 1833. She was living in Schoenweise, Old Colony, Russia.
+5 iv. Jacob Warkentin - was born on 11 Nov 1836.
