Jantzen/Johnson Mennonites 1900 Canada ND

Looking for info on:

Jantzen Mennonite family, from Canada (Manitoba???) who moved to North Dakota prior to 1900.

Father Jantzen later moved to a Mennonite community near Dallas, Oregon.

Jantzen had at least 4 sons: John James, William, Jacob "Jake", and Frank.

John James, William, & Jacob all married 3 Voth sisters around 1906 or later.

They were all Mennonites, but converted to Seventh-Day Adventist around 1904, along with the Voth father, Jacob Voth. (his daughters were named Anna, Lydia & Sarah).

In 1913, Anna Voth died during childbirth.

So in 1916, John James Jantzen(Johnson) went back to Canada from the settlement they were from, to wed Mary Warkentin, and bring her back to Gerber Township, near Woodworth, near Bowden, North Dakota.

Thank you!

(I am the great-grandson of John James Jantzen/Johnson
