Volga German
Anna (Bolender) Dumler was a Volga German.
Anna (Bolender) Dumler has German Roots.

Family # 149 in the 1798 Grimm census.

Anna Dorothea Bolender's birth year is based on the age she gave to census takers in 1798. With a birth year of 1765, she should appear in the 1767 and 1775 censuses. Neither she nor her parents are included in those censuses, so they most likely went to another village first, before settling in Grimm. [1] [2] Her brother's wife was from Bauer, so that may be a clue as to where the family first lived.

The family appears in the Kulberg Reports:

"Bolender, Caspar, Luth., farmer from Schlitz, doc. No. 2398, wife: Anna, daughter: Anna, 4, mother-in-law: Agness. [3]

If Anna Dorothea was 4 years old in 1766, then she was actually born in 1762. This makes her age off by three years in the 1798 Grimm census.

Schlitz, Germany, is about 80 miles northeast of Frankfurt. [4]

Anna Dorothea married Ernst Friedrich Dumler by 1786. The couple went on to have six children:

  1. Anna Barbara Dumler, born in 1787
  2. Johann Georg Dumler, born in 1789
  3. Anna Elisabeth (Dumler) Grosch, born in 1790
  4. Anna Katharina Dumler, born in 1794
  5. Johann Jakob Dumler, born in 1797
  6. Johann Martin Dumler, born in 1807

1798 Grimm Census [5]

Family # 149
Head of the Household Kaspar Axthelm, age 66
Wife Susanna Amend, age 70
Adopted into the household:
Child #1 Friedrich Tumler [Dumler?] should be Dumler, age 35
Wife of Child #1 Anna Dorothea Bolender
Grandchild #1 Johann Georg Dumler, age 9
Grandchild #2 Johann Jakob Dumler, age 1
Grandchild #3 Anna Barbara Dumler, age 11
Grandchild #4 Elisabeth Dumler, age 8
Grandchild #5 Anna Katharina Dumler, age 4

The couple may have had additional daughters between 1799 and 1815. These daughters were born and married between censuses: born after the 1798 census and married before the 1834 census. This means they were never identified in a census with their birth parents. Any daughters will show up in the 1834 census as living with their husbands' families, with their last name at birth unknown. There is no way to match them to their birth families solely with census records.

Anna Dorothea is not listed in the 1834 census and most likely passed away at some point prior to that year. [6] If she survived, she would have been 68 years old.
