Family #184 in the 1834 Grimm census.
Joze is probably not the correct spelling of this surname. More likely: Jost or Just. Gottfried Joze was born in 1773, presumably in a Volga German village, although he may have been a newer resident of Grimm who had recently arrived directly from Germany. I searched the 1798 censuses for all the Volga German colonies and found no exact matches for him.
We know Gottfried was not born in Grimm, since there are no Joze, Jost or Just families in both the 1775 and 1798 Grimm census records. Therefore he arrived in the village after 1798.
By 1834, he had one son named Johann Philipp, five grandsons, two granddaughters, and one great grandson. Despite having at least seven males to carry on the family name, this surname and any of the variants do not appear in the 1857 census. The two granddaughters may have married into other Grimm families; I don't have enough facts yet to make that determination. At some point after 1834, however, all his male descendants either moved to another village or perished. There appear to be too many of them -- seven males -- to believe the latter.
I'm not far enough along to be able to determine if and who his daughters or granddaughters may have married. Unfortunately, his wife was born after 1798 and died before either the 1798 census (perhaps after childbirth) or the 1834, so her name is not accounted for in any census record. Their only child on record is son Johann Philipp Joze who was born in 1793.
