The boat docked at Antwerp New York. Diedrich had a brother Heinrich who came later on the Switzerland and arrived June 24, 1879. They came from Antwerp, Belgium and landed in Philadelphia, Penn.

Janzen Name and their Mennonite Relationship (Alice Stephens Thomsen) "Origin of the surname Janzen : This particular Janzen family is originally from the Netherlands; they were Dutch Mennonites. The people of Molotschna Colony, in South Russia were followers of a man named "Menno Simons" (1496-1561) whom the Mennonite faith is named after. Menno Simons was originally from Holland, and was influential in both Holland, and northern Germany.

Janzen is one of the most widespread Mennonite family names of Dutch-Prussian background, derived from Jan (Johann, John) a given name, to which is added "zon" (zen, sen, etc.), the combination meaning "son of John." The name was very common among the Dutch Mennonites and found its way into the congregations bordering the Netherlands such as Krefeld , Gronau , and East Friesland. It was also common in Schleswig-Holstein and Prussia , where it was represented in the congregations of Elbing , Königsberg , Tiegenhagen , Ladekopp , Rosenort, Fürstenwerder , Heubuden , Tiensdorf, Orlofferfelde, Schönsee, Jeziorka, Deutsch-Kazun , etc. The name appears first on record in Danzig in 1568. From Prussia it was transplanted to Russia and later to North America, where it is found in most of the settlements started after 1874, and, later still, to South America. A branch of this name was transplanted from the Lower Rhine to Pennsylvania , where it was changed into Johnson. Jacob H. Janzen (1878-1950) was an outstanding church leader (General Conference Mennonite Church) and teacher both in Russia and Canada . He was also a pioneer Mennonite author composing at least 38 published writings.
