Ancestry has birth records for all five children, but none include a date or place. I will list them below so additional research can be done before we create profiles for them.

Birth Record for son Johann Niclas Seippell [4]

There are probably obvious spelling errors in this record.

Name: Anna Eva Kirchner
Gender: Female
Spouse: Johann Adam Seippell
Child: Johann Niclas Seippell


Birth Record for daughter Eva Maria Seippell [5]

Name: Anna Eva Kirchner
Gender: Female
Spouse: Johann Adam Seippell
Child: Eva Maria Seippell


In addition to Anna Catharina, Nikolaus, and Eva Maria she had two more children with husband Adam Seibel. Adam died in Germany before 1766. Eva decided to immigrate to Russia with her children and brother's family.

Eva is listed in the Kulberg Reports under the name Eva Selb. [6] I believe that surname is either misspelled, modified, or abbreviated from the original form of Seibel. She was already a widow when she and her children embarked on their journey to Russia. She is the one who probably perished on the journey to to Volga, not her husband, who had died in Germany before the family left that country. But when identifying orphans, Russian record keepers apparently used their father's name, not their mother's name or the name of the most recently living parent.

As you can see from the Anna Katharina's birth record, her mother Eva's last name at birth was Kirchner. In the 1767 Grimm census, her children are listed immediately following immigrant Peter Kirchner. [7] Eva Seibel and Peter Kirchner were from the same town in Germany, Kaichen.[7] Peter and Eva were most likely siblings, immigrating together to Russia. Eva may have felt safer traveling with her brother and his wife, along with other people from the Friedberg area of what is now Germany. The entry for Eva and her children looks like this:

Selb, Eva. Lutheran from Friedberg, document number 2389, widow, children: Johann, 18; Adam, 16; Nicolaus, 13; Catharina, 20; and Eva, 9.[6]

Listed three names above hers in the Kulberg Reports is her brother:

Kirchner, Peter, Lutheran farmer from Friedberg, document 2386, his wife Anna, daughter Anna, 5.[6]

Also listed on the two open pages, 166-167, of the Kulberg Reports in close proximity to Eva's name are 11 other families who ended up in Grimm, Russia. These families include:[6]

  • Johann Balzer
  • Johann Batz
  • Just Erdmann
  • Andreas Hess
  • Jakob Kunau
  • Peter Kirchner
  • Johannes Lipp
  • Valentin Reich
  • Emanuel Schneider
  • Eva Selb

I'm including a copy of the 1767 Grimm census to show that Eva's two youngest children, Nicholas and Eva, were considered orphans at the time of the census. I believe that indicates that Eva did not survive the journey to Grimm.


1767 Grimm Census [7]

Family # 7
Head of the Household Nikolaus Heimbuch, age 27, Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt
Wife Katharina Heimbuch, age 19
Also living with Nikolaus Heimbuch, family #7
Child #1 Nicholas Seibel, age 13, orphan, Lutheran farmer from Friedberg
Child #2 Eva Seibel, age 11, orphan
Note Deceased father was Adam Seibel


You can see from this entry that the "family" listed after Nikolaus and Katharina Heimbuch were orphans Nicholas Seibel, age 13, and Eva Seibel, age 11. These names and ages are in sync with the names in the Kulberg Reports on page 166. [6] Older brothers Johann and Adam were young enough and strong enough to survive the journey, but if they did, they did not settle in Grimm. The fact that the two youngest children were called orphans suggests that they had no living parents.
