Volga German
Maria (Jost) Fischler was a Volga German.
Maria (Jost) Fischler has German Roots.

Family #151 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #29 in the 1834 Grimm census.

Anna Maria Jost was born in Vodyanoy Buerak (Stefan). She was probably an older sister of Anna Cunegunda Jost, born 1769. Need to confirm with a copy of the 1775 Census for Stefan.

She is not specifically mentioned in the 1834 census and her husband has remarried. She most likely passed away in the early 1800s, based on the fact that there is a gap between the births of her husband's children. This most likely indicates her death and his eventual remarriage to wife Katharina.

Unlike in other cases, this census does not designate which children belong to each wife of Johann Daniel Fischler.

According to the 1798 census, Anna Maria has at least two children:

  • Wilhelmina, born 1794
  • Magdalina, born 1796

Her husband's next documented children are:

  • Georg Michael, born 1803
  • Johann Heinrich, born in 1809

There are large gaps between Anna Maria's last child included in the 1798 census, Magdalina, and between Georg Michael and Johann Heinrich. This can be accounted for by one of several reasons:

  • Anna Maria had one or two more girls between 1798 and 1802. If they married before 1834, their names would not be included in a census with their birth parents. If this is the case, we will likely never be able to identify these daughters, at least not through available census records.
  • Not all stillborn children are listed, nor are miscarriages. It's possible that Anna Maria had unsuccessful pregnancies before the birth of Georg Michael, and that her death was directly related to his birth.
  • Any children born may have died in infancy. If so, they were probably female. Again since women weren't included in the interim 1816 census, their births would have never been captured on a census record.

The rest of Johann Daniel's children appear to belong to his second wife, Katharina.

Based on the facts we know, it appears that Anna Maria probably had at least three children with Johann Daniel Fischler before she passed away around 1803 or 1804. Her husband remarried by 1808 and had son Johann Heinrich with his second wife in 1809.

I'm estimating Anna Maria's death at about 1803 to coincide with the birth of Georg Michael. If new details emerge allowing this to be clarified, I will update this profile.
