On this date in 1834 (Jan. 20th), Michael Waldner was born. #Hutterite minister. It was Michael, along with fellow minister Jakob Hofer, who re-instituted the Hutterian community of goods in the village of Hutterdorf, Russia, in 1859. (The Hutterites had abandoned community of goods 40 years earlier in Radichev, Ukraine.) Michael was a blacksmith (schmied) by trade. Thus, his followers became known as Schmiedeleut. In 1874, this group migrated to South Dakota, near Yankton, where they formed the Bon Homme colony (pictured), the first Hutterite settlement in America. Michael Waldner died at Bon Homme on Oct. 13, 1889.
