Volga German
Jacob Hessenbeie was a Volga German.
Jacob Hessenbeie has German Roots.

Family #34 and 34a in the 1767 Grimm census.

Family #112 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Jacob Hessenbeie was born about 1760 to Jacob Hessenbeie and Maria Elisabeth Unknown Marquardt. By 1766, his father had passed away and his mother remarried to Friedrich Marquardt. Friedrich Marquardt told immigration authorities that he was from Holstein, Germany. It's unclear if Jacob Hessenbeie was also from Holstein.

Although the family's names cannot be found in the Kulberg Reports, they were listed among the first settlers in the Colony of Grimm.

Jakob Hessenbeie is not listed with his mother and step-father in the 1775 Grimm census, nor is he listed under his step-father's surname, Marquardt. He would have been about 15 years old in 1775.
