Hello again Ansgar:
    I have spent a pleasant few hours visiting my Mantei friend and this what I learned with some info I obtained from other sources.
    Heinrich Mantei died at Lemberg, Saskatchewan in 1959 and is buried there.  His wife Lydia Mantei died in 1966 and is also buried there.  This I confirmed from Saskatchewan cemetery records.
    Heinrich and Lydia had 6 children, Ida, Agnes, Natalie, Laura, Arthur and Edmund.  There was no son Heinrich.  I spoke with one of Heinrich and Lydia's granddaughters who gave her consent to send you her Canadian telephone number if you wish to obtain further information.  This I will do by private email.
    I was only able to find the death year and place for  Kristine Zieg.  She was buried in 1922 at Aberdeen Saskatchewan.  I found nothing on her husband Michael.
    The Mantei name is plentiful here in Saskatchewan.  There were/are literally dozens of Mantei people living in and around the town of Estevan Saskatchewan, for example.  However, none of the Mantei descendants I am acquainted with knew of a relationship with the Manteis around Estevan.  Perhaps there is a very distant connection.

I hope this is of help to you.

  Hello Ansgar:
      Some relatives of Heinrich/Lydia Mantei live here in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.  One in particular is a longtime friend of mine.  Although he is not in the best of health, I have arranged to visit him Sunday afternoon.  Whatever information he can provide, I will pass on to you after that.

  Best regards,
  John Marsch
