Family #41 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Appendix #9 of the 1798 Grimm census.
In The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766, his wife is listed as Margaretha Barbara Risch, daughter of Johann Michael Risch.
In the 1775 census, Johann Heinrich Meisner's wife is named Margaretha Barbara with no maiden name listed. They had one son, Alexander, born in 1767, age 7.5.
It's not clear if Margaretha Barbara Risch died before bearing any children, allowing Johann Heinrich to remarry Margaretha Barbara Hartman and have a child with her by 1767. The seven-year gap between children suggests the death of one wife and the remarriage of her widowed husband before continuing his family. Could he have married his second wife in 1775 or earlier, but they did not have a child until 1778? That is what is not known.
Head of the Household Johann Heinrich Meniner [?] [sic], age 31 should be Meisner
Wife Margaretha Barbara Meniner [?] [sic], age 27
Child #1 Alexander Meniner [?] [sic], age 7 years 6 months
In the 1798 census, Johann Heinrich Meisner's wife is clearly identified as Margaretha Barbara Hartman, and they have a son Alexander, born in 1767, now age 31. This is probably an error, though, because son Alexander was born to Johann Heinrich and his first wife. What is clear, however, is that Johann Heinrich's first wife had passed away almost three decades earlier, and second wife Margaretha Barbara Hartmann would have probably been the only mother he remembered. It is perhaps for that reason that it didn't occur to Johann Heinrich to identify Jakob Alexander as his son by his first wife.

Neither she nor her husband were still living by the 1834 census. Had the Margaretha Barbara of this profile survived, she would have been 87 years old.
