Biography

Volga German
Ludwig Landzettel is a Volga German.

Father or Grandfather of Volga German.

Note: This surname was spelled different ways, including Landseidel.


There were at least three Johann Ludwig Landzettels in this line of the family born in the Habitzheim or Spachbrüchen. They are outlined in the research notes section below. The Johann Ludwig of this profile is Ludwig #2.

The two towns shared a church which was located in Sprachbrüchen. At the time of his birth, Johann Peter Hach was the pastor at the Lutheran church and likely the man who baptized him. Any research for a birth record for Ludwig should start in this location in the Lutheran church records. [1]


Johann Ludwig Landzettel was born about 1678 in Habitzheim, Hessen.[2] He married Anna Christina Trinkaus on 28 February 1702 in Habitzheim.[2]

He is named in the marriage record of his daughter Eva Margaretha, who eventually immigrated to Denmark and then Russia, taking her niece Anna Catharina with her.


Marriage Record for Daughter Eva Margaretha Landzettelin [3]

Name Anthon Jäger
Spouse's Name Eva Margaretha Landzettelin
Event Date 15 Jan 1743
Father's Name Conrad Jäger
Spouse's Father's Name Ludwig Landzettel


His birth place is based on the place where his father and grandfather were born, Habitzheim. He lived just a few miles from his future wife, who was from the town of Spachbrüchen. According to googlemaps.com, the two towns were less than 3 miles apart, according to Googlemaps.com. [4]

During the time when the families lived there, the mid-1600s to the mid-1700s, that territory went back and forth between the Landgraviates of Habitzheim and Spachbrüchen were the Landgraviate of Hesse-Kassel and Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt and Hesse-Rheinfels.

"1567–1803: Hessian portion temporarily divided between the Landgraviate of Hesse-Kassel , the Landgraviate of Hesse-Darmstadt and Hesse-Rheinfels" [5]

Research Notes

It appears that there were three generations of Ludwig Landzettels. For the purpose of this research, I'm identifying them as:

  • #1 Johann Ludwig Landzettel, born about 1654 in Süß, Hersfeld-Rotenburg, Hessen, husband of Anna Catharina Wetterhan
  • #2 Johann Ludwig Landzettel, born 1678 • Habitzheim, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen, died 1727, husband of Anna Christina Trinkhaus
  • #3 Johann Ludwig Landzettel, born 1708 in Habtitzheim, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen, died in 1775 in Habitzheim, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen, died 1775 in Habitzheim, Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen, husband of Maria Elisabeth Rapp

The purpose of researching the Landzettel family line is to document the lineage of Eva Margaretha Landzettel, born about 1717. Ludwig #3 was born in 1707, so it is unlikely that he is her father, as was suggested in other records. Further research shows that Ludwig #3 was most likely Eva Margaretha's older brother. This makes Ludwig #2 he father.

Some people have connected Ludwig #2 to early settlers of the Evansville Indiana tri-state area. Ludwig #2's wife died in Habitzheim in 1752, meaning that if her husband immigrated to the United States, it would have been after 1752. That may have been difficult, however, since some records show that Ludwig #2 died in 1727, 25 years before the death of his wife, in Habitzheim.

It's possible that information about Ludwig #2 and Ludwig #3 was co-mingled, attached to the wrong person. It's also possible that there was a third person named Ludwig Landzettel, not yet identified in these notes, who immigrated to America.

If the death date and place of Ludwig #2 is correct, 1727 in Habitzheim, the the Indiana records are not reflective of him. They are likely of his son or an unknown man with the same name. However, records also show that his son Ludwig #3 died in Habitzheim in 1775. If the Indiana records are about him, then his death place and possibly the death date are incorrect in these non-primary source records.

Regarding the history of Habitzheim and Spachbrüchen, the passage below, shows the connection between their history, as well as that of neighborning towns.

"The church was built in 1753. There is also a rectory and school building, a synagogue and a mill. - Spachbrücken belonged to the Habizheim castle, which the von Bickenbach had acquired as a fiefdom. The castle gradually came to Erbach and after the Fulda Abbey in 1390 had sold the Otzberg castle and half of it to Umstadt, together with the other half, to Churpfalz, Erbach had to carry the dependent Habizheim Palace of Palatinate to fief. In this way the place became Palatinate. From 1530 onwards, the taverns of Erbach gradually sold these possessions piece by piece, mainly to the Counts of Löwenstein, who also exercised subjudicial jurisdiction. In 1802 the Palatinate part of Spachbrücken came to Hesse, and in 1805 the Löwensteinische Vogteirechte were acquired by exchange. The place used to be a Dieburg branch."[5]

This helps explain why different family records have different location names in their birth, marriage and death records.
