Biography

Volga German
Peter Fink is a Volga German.
Peter Fink has German Roots.

Family #52 in the 1767 Grimm census.

Family #129 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Family #67 in the 1798 Grimm census.


1767 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 52
Head of the Household Peter Fink, age 30, Lutheran craftsman from Darmstadt
Wife Anna Dorothea Fink, age 29


1775 Grimm Census [2]

Family # 129
Head of the Household Peter Fink, age 39
Wife Dorothea Fink, age 37


There is no Peter Fink in the 1798 Grimm census, but there is a Johann Just Fink. His wife's name was Dorothea, and he was born in 1737, close enough to be a match with Peter Fink from the 1767 and 1775 censuses except for the dramatically different first name. With the limited influx of settlers between 1775 and 1798, it seems unlikely that another person with the surname Fink, the same age and the same spouse's first name moved to Grimm. His two sons were young enough to be born after 1775 and married before 1798. Peter and Johann Just were probably the same person or perhaps brothers.


1798 Grimm Census [3]

Family # 67
Head of the Household Johann Just Fink, age 61
Wife Dorothea Samin [?]
Child #1 Johann Wilhelm Heinrich Fink, age 23
Wife of Child #1 Katharina Stehli Fink, age 20
Grandchild #1 Johann Ernst Fink, age 2
Child #2 Johann Ernst Fink, age 19
Wife of Child #2 Anna Elisabeth Schäfer Fink, age 20


By 1834, there were no longer any Finks living in Grimm. [4] Peter/Johann Just probably passed away, as did his wife, and their sons and their families moved to other villages.
