Johann Christoph Eberhard was born in Denmark in 1762 in Christiansholm, Gottorf, Denmark. [1] One year later, his mother died and his father remarried Katharina Kaiser, who, because of his age, would have been the only mother he ever knew.

As did most of the German immigrants, his father found it difficult to farm the marshy Danish lands given to them. When Catherine the Great issued her manifesto inviting Germans to immigrate to Russia, they joined a large group of other dissatisfied Germans who chose to move to another new country rather than return to Germany. He and his parents left Denmark on 07 January 1765 with the destination of Grimm, along with his grandfather. [1]
