In the 1835 census, he is listed at Altonau #11, and is said to have come to Russia in 1804. He moved to Rosenort in 1848. The entry for Orloff #11 says he moved away from there in 1816. Raised by his sister Helena Von Riesen and her husband Klaas Reimer. He was a farmer in the village of Altonau, Molotschna, but moved to Rosenort shortly after 1834. Was elected deacon of the KG in 1824 and as a minister in 1838. Was historically inclined and recorded various events and occurrences for posterity. He was well read in the writings of the faith and his library included various works by Dutch writers such as Claus Ganlof which had a great influence on his nephew Aeltester Peter Toews after his death. His sons all received a good education. Klaas Friesen was totally blind for the last seven years of his life. They lived in Rosenort, Molotschna, until his death in 1870. Shortly thereafter, his family moved to Blumenhoff, Borosenko, settling next door to the Wirtschaft of Aeltester Peter Toews. Their farm at this point consisted of 140 acres.
