Trying to find any information on Volga German, Jakob Reichert (1838-1928)

+5 votes
My 2nd great-grandparents, Jakob Reichert (11 Nov 1838-circa 1928) and Maria Katharina David (1840-?) immigrated from Dietel, Russia in the early 1900s. They are both listed on the 1910 Census in Timnath, Colorado as living with their son, Johann Georg Reichert and his family. I am looking for any information as to WHEN and HOW they immigrated to the USA and back to Russia circa 1911. Currently there is NO information in Russia regarding their deaths.

Melissa, interesting although the dates are a shade off -- in 1903, JaKob (65), Maria Katharina David (63), Johann Georg (26) and his wife Katharina (22) -- and the enumerated children, Elizabeth, Margareth, and Apolonia don't "ring a bell."

Jakob and Maria Katharina David's three sons also immigrated to the USA:

  • Heinrich Jacob Reichert -- manifest shows 1902 through Quebec on his way to Lincoln, NE to visit his brother, Johann Heinrich Reichert.
  • Johann Heinrich Reichert -- no manifest
  • Johann Georg Reichert -- I wonder since Jakob and Maria lived with Johann Georg(e) and Katharina in Colorado, if they COULD HAVE IMMIGRATED TOGETHER thru Canada in 1903? But who are these children?
