 - While their son, Heinrich Wilhelm Krause Jr, was a child (i.e. after March 15, 1921), they moved to Germany. In 1928, at the urging of  Jake Kornelsen (Maria's brother), they moved to the seventh concession, Wheatley, Ontario. They shortly moved to Port Crewe where W. F. Krause worked on a fishing boat [at Crewe's Fishery]. In 1938, they moved to Point Pelee where he and Maria purchased their own fishery.

At the time, they already had a little son, just a baby [Heinrich Wilhelm Krause (15 March 1921 - 15 January 1980)], in the travel cradle. I remembered that time, as from then on we suffered of terrible hunger. Besides me, Liesa, and my parents [who all remained in Tiegenhagen, Molotschna CoIony in Russia], there were also my siblings Lena, Jasch, Heins, Nut, Sascha, Sara, Katja [who all remained in Tiegenhagen, Molotschna CoIony in Russia].
