Peter Haeffner was my great-grandfather. He was born in Russia 1864-1866. He is the son of a Joe Haeffner and Kate Dliagen. He married Mary Kisner and had my grandma Emma Haeffner before leaving Russia. She was born 1886 I believe and the next child was born in Salina Kansas in 1892 so they arrived in Topeka and the Saline area in 1887. Peter worked in the Santa Fe railroad shop running a set of metal shears making railway cars. Would like to find out more details.
