Yenisei Province (Siberia, Russia)
Yenisei Province (now Krasnoyarsk Territory, Siberia), Russia, on the left bank of the Yenisei River, had a Mennonite settlement for a time. In 1913 some 32 families from the Ignatyevo Mennonite settlement in the Ukraine established two villages, Rozovka and Krasnovka, about 40 miles south of the city of Minusinsk. During the Revolution this settlement suffered severely. In 1926 there were only 10 families left. When G. Rosenfeld and J. Pätkau visited the Mennonites here in 1927, they reported that the settlement had been dissolved be cause of unfavorable conditions and that the few remaining families were too poor to move else where.
