Peter Schmidt: elder of the Steinbach congregation in the Molotschna Settlement. Peter was born 20 January 1860 in Steinbach, Molotschna Settlement, South Russia, eighth of ten children of Peter Schmidt (23 October 1817 – 11 May 1876) and Marie (Martens) Schmidt (8 October 1821 – 30 October 1895). Peter married Anna Schmidt (4 February 1866, Steinbach, Molotschna Settlement, South Russia – 8 October 1949, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada) on 8 May 1886 in Steinbach, Molotschna Settlement, South Russia. Peter and Anna had six children: Maria, Katharina, Anna, Peter, Louise, and Lydia. Peter died 30 May 1910, at the age of fifty.

Peter was a great benefactor to various Mennonite causes, including the Morija Deaconess Home. P. M. Friesen speaks highly of his consecrated Christian living.
