Biography

Volga German
Johannes (Gabel) Happel is a Volga German.
Johannes (Gabel) Happel has German Roots.


Family #139 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Family #104 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #126 in the 1834 Grimm census.


Johannes Gabel/Gapel/Happel was born in 1768 in Grimm, Russia, to parents Johannes Gabel and Anna Katharina (Unknown) Gabel. He is first listed in the 1775 Grimm census.


1775 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 139
Head of the Household Johann Gapel [Happel?] [sic], age 42
Wife Anna Katharina Gapel/Gable, age 28
Child #1 Johannes Gapel/Gable, age 6 years 6 months
Child #2 Georg Christophel [sic] Gapel/Gable, age 3
Child #3 Johann Georg Gapel/Gable, age 9 months


He married Maria Barbara (Jaeger) Happel by 1790 and son Johann Georg Happel was born the following year.


1798 Grimm Census [2]

Family # 104
Head of the Household Johannes Gapel [Happel?], age 66
Wife Johanna Schultz Gapel [Happel?] from Sarepta, age 40, second wife
Child #1 Louisa Gabel/Gapel/Happel, age 5, daughter of Johanna Schultz, born out of wedlock
Child #2 Johannes Gapel [Happel?], age 29
Wife of Child #2 Maria Barbara Jäger Gapel [Happel?], age 29, from Dietel
Grandchild #1 Georg Gapel [Happel?], age 7
Child #3 Johann Georg Gapel [Happel?], age 25
Wife of Child #2 Elizabeta [sic] Felde Gapel [Happel?], age 24
Grandchild #2 Katharina Gapel [Happel?], age 6 months


By 1834, he was married to a second wife, Anna Barbara. This indicates that his first Maria Barbara Jäger was deceased. Not only was Anna Barbara his second wife, but she was likely a widow. Her identity can be narrowed down to one of these two individuals from Grimm.

  • Family #64 Anna Barbara Waller Schmidt 1767 Johannes Schmidt
  • Family #147 Anna Barbara Maier Reizenstein 1768 Johann Michael Reizenstein

Anna Barbara Waller Schmidt, #64 in the 1798 census, was still alive in 1834 and is listed as the head of her household #87. She can be ruled out as his second wife. Anna Barbara Maiser Reizenstein's name does not appear with her husband's family in the 1834 census, and her husband has a different wife. Typically this means that the first wife passed away. It is possible, however, that the couple divorced. All their children were grown. Although divorce was unusual, it can't be ruled out as a possibility. It's also possible Anna Barbara was from another village.


1834 Grimm Census [3]

Family # 126
Head of the Household Johannes Happel, age 66

Grandchild #9 Katharina Elisabeth Happel, age 4
Nephew Johann Adam Happel, age 12 in 1816, to household #297
Note Johann Adam was the son of an unnamed brother


Johannes Happel is not listed in the 1857 Grimm census; he most likely had passed away. [4] If he were still living that year, he would have been 89 years old.
