Dates of existence


Jacob F. Guenter (1881-1964) was the second child born to Franz Guenter (1857-1946) and Katharina Heinrichs (1852-1911). He was about 14 years old when the family moved from Manitoba (Schoenwiese ?) to the Hague area of Saskatchewan. In 1904 he married Eva Bergen (? -1953) and they lived in the village of Hochstadt (south west of Hague). His father Franz Guenter (1857-1946) and siblings all moved to Mexico in the 1920s. The Jacob F. Guenther family was the only (?) family of the Franz and Katharina Guenter children who did not move to Mexico. Jacob F. and Eva had eight sons and three daughters, of which one son and two daughters died in infancy. For many years, Jacob F. Guenter was in charge of the Waisenamt, the institution which looked after the estate of orphans and settled their inheritance. Jacob F. Guenter's daughter, Eva, born in 1908, took much responsibility in household and garden activities in the home because mother Eva (Bergen) Guenter often suffered from epileptic seizures. Eva Guenter remained single until 1968 when she married Jacob R. Schellenberg of Aberdeen, Saskatchewan. Jacob R. Schellenberg died in 1989. Eva (Guenter) Schellenberg died in 1995.
