Family #44 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #114 in the 1834 Grimm census.

Georg Wilhelm Getz was born about 1770 in Grimm, Russia. His father was Andreas Getz, but there was some uncertainty about the identity of his mother. Andreas Getz was married three times:

  1. Dorothea Braun (widow), born 1737, married about 1769
  2. Eva Elisabeth Lochmann (widow), born 1734, married before 1775
  3. Elisabeth Schutz (probably a widow), born 1726, married before 1798

Based on information in the 1798 Grimm census, Georg Whilhelm was the son of Andreas' deceased wife. At the time of the census, only former wife Dorothea Braun was deceased. Eva Elisabeth was still alive in 1798, as she was living with her stepdaughter in family #73. Eva Elisabeth was his step-mother, who married his father Andreas sometime before 1775, in part to help him take care of his infant son and step-children.

1775 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 90
Head of the Household Andreas Getz, age 33
Wife Elisabeth Getz, age 42, probably second wife
Child #1 Georg Wilhelm Getz, age 4 years 6 months
Child #2 Johannes Braum [sic], age 12 years 6 months, stepchild
Child #2 Jakob Lochmann, age 8, stepchild
Child #2 Maria Elisabeth Braum [sic], age 6 years 6 months, stepchild

When his father Andreas and Eva Elisabeth Lochmann divorced, Georg Wilhelm stayed living with his biological father and his third wife, while Eva Elisabeth Lochmann Getz lived with step-daughter Maria Elisabeth Braun Krug. If I find new information that suggests his mother was not Dorothea Braun, I will update this record accordingly.

1798 Grimm Census [2]

Family # 44
Head of the Household Andreas Getz, age 57
Wife Elisabeth Schutz [sic] Getz, age 73 [perhaps Schultz?], from Stephan
Child #1 Georg Wilhelm Getz, age 28, by deceased wife
Wife of Child #1 Elisabeth Margaretha Brungard Getz, age 23
Grandchild #1 Anna Margaretha Getz, age 3 months

The spelling of his surname changed in 1834 to include an umlauted letter O (Götz). This was probably the original spelling of the surname, whereas the Getz version was a phoenetic version introduced by the census taker.

1834 Grimm Census [3]

Family # 114
Head of the Household Georg Wilhelm Götz, age 64
Wife Elisabeth Götz, age 58
Child #1 Johann Philipp Götz, age 34, by first wife
Wife of Child #1 Christina Götz, age 23, second wife
Grandchild #1 Johann Georg Götz, age 10, by first wife
Grandchild #2 Johann Ludwig Götz, age 6 months, by second wife
Child #2 Johann Wilhelm Götz, age 32, by first wife
Wife of Child #2 Anna Margaretha Götz, age 31
Grandchild #3 Regina Götz, age 13
Grandchild #4 Johann Friedrich Götz, age 8
Grandchild #5 Johann Philipp Götz, age 3
Grandchild #6 Katharina Margaretha Götz, age 1 year 3 months
Child #3 Georg Adolph Götz, age 23
Wife of Child #3 Katharina Elisabeth Götz, age 20
Grandchild #7 Louisa Barbara Götz, age 2

There is a nine-year gap between the births of his third and fourth children. His first wife most likely passed away between 1802 and 1810, and he remarried by 1810. His fourth child, Georg Adolph Götz, was then the son of his second wife Anna Elisabeth Schäfer.
