Philip Adam Engelhard was born near Sulzfeld in the Canton of Kraichgau in what is now Germany. [1] This location was northwest of Stuttgart near the French border. This may have been his exact birth location, or it may have been where he and his family lived before immigrating to Denmark.

Philip married Elisabeth, surname unknown for now, by 1761, and their first child was born in 1762. Daughter Katharina Barbara was three months old when the couple immigrated to Denmark. Traveling with the family to Denmark was a maid, Anna Margaretha Bessen. [1] Typically these maids were a relative or close friend. Labeling a person who was not a part of the immediate family as a maid, for example, gave the family the opportunity to bring another friend or extended family member with them when they immigrated. The Germans who immigrated to Denmark were usually poor and unable to support themselves in their home villages, so they certainly couldn't afford to have a maid. In this case, Anna Margaretha Bessen may have been the sister of Philip's wife Elisabeth.

The Engelhard family traveled to Altona, the Duchy of Holstein, to meet up with the rest of the people immigrating to Denmark at that time. They arrived in the city of Flensburg, Duchy of Schleswig on 29 May 1762. [1] Based on her age in 1775, daughter Margaretha was born in 1764 in Friderichsheide, in the region of Gottorf, Denmark.

The family departed Denmark for Russia on 24 April 1765, headed for the Colony of Grimm. [1] Although they don't appear in the 1767 census for Grimm, they do appear in the 1775 census. By that time, however, his wife Elisabeth is not mentioned so we can't confirm whether or not she survived the journey. By 1775, Philip had married his second wife, Margaretha, and the couple had a one-year-old son.

Head of the Household Philipp Engelhard, age 49
Wife Margaretha Engelhard, age 23, second wife
Child #1 Philip Andreas Engelhard, age 1
Child #2 Katharina Barbara Engelhard, age 13
Child #3 Margaretha Engelhard, age 11


They went on to have at least six children by the time of the 1798 census.


1798 Grimm Census [3]

Family # 145
Head of the Household Philipp Engelhart [sic], age 72
Wife Anna Margaretha Vogel Engelhart [sic], age 47
Child #1 Philipp Andreas Engelhart [sic], age 25
Child #2 Martin Engelhart [sic], age 19
Wife of Child #2 Elisabeth Nul [Nolde?] [Knoll] Engelhart [sic], age 20
Child #3 Philipp Engelhart [sic], age 9
Child #4 Friedrich Engelhart [sic], age 6
Child #5 Elisabeth Engelhart [sic], age 15


Neither Philip nor his wife is listed in the 1834 census, [4] and his son Philipp Andreas Engelhardt had taken over as the head of the household. They most likely had passed away before that year. The deaths of male residents were noted in the census after their death and Philipp's death is not noted in the 1834 census. This indicates that he likely died before the 1816 male-only census was taken and his death was noted in that document. If he survived to 1816, he would have been 90 years old; if he survived to 1834, he would have been over 100 years old.
