Attached is the family picture of Peter Topka (1879 to 1964) and his wife Barbara (1886 to 1960) and their three surviving children - Elizabeth (1905 to 1991), Karl Sebastian (1908 to 1996), and Barbara "Bobbie" (1910 to 1979). A fourth child, Johann, was born and died in 1906 and is buried in the Yellow Grass, SK, Canada cemetery. Both Peter and Barbara were born in Offsenitza; Barbara was the eldest daughter of Sebastian Jung and his wife Katherina Giel. Peter was a homesteader at Yellow Grass where he married Barbara in 1904. In 1907 the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio. Barbara Jung Topka was a sister to my great grandmother, Maria (Mary) Jung Hyer (1896 to 1982) who lived at Lang, SK, Canada.
