Adolf Grimm was born about 1754 in Germany to Gottfried Grimm and an unnamed mother. He immigrated with his family to Russia in 1766-1767. By the time of the 1775 census, they had settled in Grimm.

1775 Grimm Census [1]

This census reveals that Anna Katharina, Gottfried's wife at the time of this census, had a three year old child with her previous husband. This means that she cannot be the mother of any of Gottfried's children. The most likely scenario is that Gottfried's first wife and Anna Katharina's first husband did not survive the journey to the Volga River, and that the couple married between 1766 and 1767, either in Oranienbaum, Russia, or shortly after they arrived in Grimm.
