Here is a story about Andreas and Dorthea submitted by Nettie Hauck:
"Dorthea was a good natured woman, pleasant personality, full of vigour, energy, spirit, happily whistling as going about her duties but never in the presence of Andrew or anyone else. While Andreas attended church meetings she opened the back door for young people to have a good time.
Andrew was a school carpenter- studied carpentry in Odessa, owned a carpentry factory with John Giese."
Our thanks to Nettie Hauck for this information.
