Family #35 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Johann Georg Fries and Katharina Elisabeth immigrated to Denmark from Niederramstadt, Lichtenberg, Hessen-Darmstadt. They departed on 03 June 1762 from the processing site in Altona and arrived in Flensburg on 09 June 1762, in a group led by Johannes Wenner. They were one of the last six groups out of 49 to make this journey. The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766 says that Katharina Elisabeth was Johann Georg's financee, but they must have married either shortly before or after their arrival in Denmark.
At the time that they were recorded as living in Denmark as reserve colonists, they had a two-day-old daughter, Elisabeth Catharina. Their Danish home was number 40 in Colony G18 Neuboerm, in the region of Gottorf. The family left Denmark for Russia on 02 May 1764.
Johann Georg and his family immigrated to Grimm, but their daughter Catharina Elisabeth didn't survive the journey. They went on to have three more children:
Husband Johann Georg Fries passed away at some point before 1769, and she remarried shortly thereafter. Her second husband was Johann Georg Schmidt. The Fries children are listed as Johann Georg Schmidt's step-children in the 1775 Grimm census.
