Family #33 in the 1834 Grimm census.
Family #35 in the 1857 Grimm census.
In 1857, he was living with his brother Johann Philipp Hepp. This was probably an indication that his parents were no longer living. A search of the 1857 census shows that his father is not listed in any household. Had he survived, he would have been 72 years old. If his mother was still living, she must have remarried and was living with another family. Christian, her youngest child, at 28 years of age, preferred to remain living with his older brother. The other possibility is that she, too had passed away. Had she survived, she would have been 69 years old.
