Peter Schroeder was born Oct. 4, 1859 on the estate of Neuteich, Taschtchenak, Melitopol district, which had been purchased by his ancestor, David Schroeder (1776-1834). Here Peter was taught by Hermann Janzen and later married his daughter, Katharina, on June 1, 1889. She was born in Ohrloff, Molotschna, Mar. 25, 1862, and trained as a teacher. The couple moved to Shelannaja near the Memrik colony, where Peter’s mother had purchased a Russian nobleman’s large estate in 1884. Here their six children were born: Peter (Petja), Margarethe (Grete), Katharina (Katja), Anna (Njuta), Agnes, and Agatha (Hasha). Following the Revolution of 1917, the family was driven off the estate and moved to Memrik the next year. Identified as a kulak (wealthy landowner) under the Stalin regime harassment intensified, including a brief imprisonment, and the couple took up residence with their son Petja and his wife Susi in Dolinovka, the Kuban, November,
