Biography

Volga German
Andreas Hess is a Volga German.
Andreas Hess has German Roots.


Family #89 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Family #49 in the 1798 Grimm census.

According to the Kulberg Reports, Andreas Hess traveled alone from Germany to Russia. [1] A weaver from Gerzen, about 195 miles east of Wurttemberg, or 64 miles north east of Munich. His document number was 2395, and he was listed as a Lutheran. Andreas departed from Luebeck and arrived in Russia on 22 July 1766 on The Pink "Lev" which was under the command of Lt. Fyodor Fyododrov.

He is not listed in the 1767 Grimm census, so he must have first settled in another village. By 1775, however, Andreas Hess was located in Grimm with a wife and three children. Note that his name was spelled incorrectly. The correct spelling, Hess, is in the Kulberg Reports as noted above and in the 1798 census shown below.
