Matthias Krug is a Volga German.
Matthias Krug has German Roots.
Family #49 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Family #73 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #162 in the 1834 Grimm census.
Matthias Krug was born in 1769, according to the 1775 Grimm census. His parents were originally German settlers in Denmark, who chose to immigrate to Russia in 1765.
They had no children when they arrived in Denmark in 1761.
 However, according to the 1775 Grimm census, the couple had a daughter who was 10 years old, born in late 1764 or 1765, most likely born in Denmark.
Matthias is first mentioned in the 1775 Grimm census as a 6 year old. He was probably born in Grimm, but may have been born in a village where the couple lived temporarily before their move to Grimm.
In the 1834 census, his wife is named as Maria Elisabeth, nine years younger than him. She is different from his wife in the 1798 census, Elisabeth Braun, who was the same age as Matthias. There is a gap of 15 years between the births of his daughter Katharina Barbara and son Johannes. This typically indicates that his first wife passed away at some point between those two births and that he remarried at a later date, most likely by 1811 to leave enough time for marriage and a pregnancy.
He was not named in the 1857 census, and his son Johannes Krug had taken over as head of the household.
Matthias was most likely deceased. Had he survived, he would have been 88 years old that year.
