Like his brother Johann Michael, he married a girl from another colony, Rothammel, located on the east side of the Volga River. The east side of the river was populated with mainly Catholic villages, while the west side, where Grimm was located, was Lutheran.
The 1798 census also states that Jakob was adopted into the family of Adam Schumbert, 65, a widower. Mr. Schumbert is not mentioned in the 1775 census and there were no other Schumberts in the 1775 and 1798 census records. Jakob's parents and siblings were alive and well, so I believe the word "adoption" is used loosely here. Perhaps Mr. Schumbert and his wife were the only ones in their family to immigrate to Russia, and after his wife's death, he had a difficult time managing the land he received from the Russian government. He may have welcomed the addition of a young man and his wife to help him out.
By the time of the 1834 census, Mr. Schumbert is no longer included in the census. Both Jakob and his wife have also passed away. Jacob's eldest son Michael continues to live in the property once owned by his father, which was presumably originally owned by Mr. Schumbert.
