Biography

Volga German
Jakob Fritz is a Volga German.
Jakob Fritz has German Roots.


Family #20 in the 1775 census.

Johann Jakob Fritz was born in 1767 to Johannes Fritz and Anna Margaretha Thiel. Originally from Baden-Durlach in what is now Germany, his parents immigrated first to Denmark, and three or four years later to Grimm, Russia.

In 1773 or 1774, Jakob's father passed away. His mother soon remarried Christian Pikus.


1775 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 20
Head of the Household Christian Pikus, age 24
Wife Margaretha Pikus, widow of Mr. [Johannes] Fritz, age 39
Step-Child #1 Gottfried Fritz, age 11 years 6 months
Step-Child #2 Johann Jakob Fritz, age 8
Step-Child #3 Maria Katharina Fritz, age 5 years 6 months
Step-Child #4 Henrietta Fritz, age 3


His half-sister Katharina Pikus was born in 1777. [2]

There are no Fritz's in the 1798 [3] and 1834 [4] censuses, nor is there a Johann Jakob Fritzler match, a surname that was abundant in Grimm at that time. He most likely moved to another village.
