Eva Kraft Schott was born in 1860 to Philip Jacob Kraft and Eva Katharina (Erdmann) Kraft. She and her children should be listed in family #120 in the 1897 Grimm census, but for some reason, only her husband is listed. This appears to be a census taker error. Grimm Village Coordinator John Groh from the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia contacted the translator about the omission. He asked if the names of the family members were in the documentation the translator used to translate the census from Russian to English. The translator confirmed that no family members were listed after Johann Friedrich Schott's name.

I am including a copy of the census entry so Eva's connection to her husband's family and children can be established. I've also added an addendum to the census record which shows the names of the known children and their approximate ages.

DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Eva by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Eva:
