The Dyck families have made extensive contributions to the Mennonite Brethren church through their sons serving as elders and ministers for several generations in Russia, America and Canada. Rev. David Dyck emigrated from Russia to Kansas in the 1870's, married Helena Rempel, and entered the ministry.
As an itinerant minister (Reiseprediger), he planted new churches in Kansas, southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan. This included the Brotherfield MB., Church (where this cemetery is located).
One of his sons, David R. Dyck, was a prominent elder in the MB; Church at Borden, just west of the Brotherfield church, across the North Saskatchewan River. He also was a prosperous farmer and active in community organizations like the municipal council and telephone board. His farm is still in the Dyck family, even after five generations
