Volga German

Georg Just has German Roots.

Family #4 in the 1767 Grimm census.

According to the 1767 census, Johann Georg Just was a Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt, Germany. That may not be his actual birth town, just the nearest major city. He was 66 years old in 1767, traveling with no children. His wife was 44 years old. Most likely any children he had stayed behind in Germany or settled in different Volga colonies. His wife Anna Elisabeth was probably his second wife.

1767 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 4
Head of the Household Johann Georg Just, age 66, Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt
Wife Anna Elisabeth Just, age 44, probably second wife

He is not listed in the 1775 Grimm census. [2] Had he survived, he would have been 74 years old. Those early years were very difficult for the first colonists, and many died. He was probably one of them. If his wife was still living, she would have been 52 years old. Because of their ages, the couple probably had no children, and after her husband's death, she probably remarried.
