Germany-Denmark-Russia

Family B-1062 in The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766.


Anna Elisabetha Lauth was born on 20 Jul 1712 in Klein-Gumpen, Hessen-Darmstadt.[1][2] Records list birth location in Neunkirchen, Kr. Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen.[3] She was baptized on 24 Jul 1712 in Neunkirchen, Kr. Darmstadt-Dieburg, Hessen.[4] She is listed as Elisabeth Catharina Laud in her marriage record. The year of her birth is revealed in The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766. It states she was 49 years old in 1761, making her birth year 1712. This reference did not include her maiden name.[5]

She married Gottlob Meisner on 16 September 1732.[6][7] This marriage record reveals her last name at birth, her father's name, and her father-in-law's name.

Marriage Record

  • Name Gottlob Meisner
  • Spouse's Name Elisab. Cathar. Laud
  • Event 16 Sep 1732
  • Event Place Evangelisch, Reichelsheim Odenwald, Starkenburg, Hesse-Darmstadt
  • Father's Name Michael Meisner
  • Spouse's Father's Name Joh. Adam Laud

In the mid 1700s, many southern Germans were poor, suffering from the effects of years of war and famine. Her husband Gottlob was a herdsman who struggled to support his family.

In 1759, Danish King Frederick V invited Germans from Hessen and the Palantinate to help settle the area of Schleswig-Holstein, at that time under the control of the Danes. The king was interested in converting the marsh lands to arable farm land. Germans were known for their good farming skills and for being hard workers, so it seemed like a win-win situation both both Danes and Germans. Gottlob and Elisabeth Catharina, eager to provide a better life for their family, decided the opportunity to immigrate to Denmark was too attractive to pass up.

The couple arrived in Denmark in August of 1761. They were an Evangelical Lutheran family from Billings Lichtenberg, Hessen-Darmstadt. They brought with them four sons, two who lived with them initially, and two who were married and came as separate families. The children still living with Elisabeth Catharina and her husband were:

  • Johann Georg, age 20
  • Johann Heinrich, age 17

The two sons who were married and had their own families were:

  • Alexander, age 28
  • Johann Wendel, age 26

They arrived in the City of Schleswig on 30 May 1761, and took their oath of allegiance to Denmark on 24 July 1761. Two weeks later the family was settled at 1 Gottes Wache in Colony G14 Julianenebene, in the district of Gottorf.

It appears that Gottlob passed away in 1764 and his home was passed on to son Johann Georg. There is no statement about what happened to Elisabeth Catharina. If she was still living, she most likely immigrated to Grimm, Russia, with her four sons. I have checked the listings for each son in the 1798 census, and there is no mention of any of them caring for their widowed mother.


Johann Gottlob Meisner, son of Michael Meisner & Anna Katharina Haag, was from Reichelsheim, southeast of Darmstadt. He married there on 16 September 1732 to Elisabeth Catharina Lauth, daughter of Adam Lauth & Magdalena Körber. She was born 20 July 1712 in Klein-Gumpen. They have 4 sons born in Reichelsheim: Alexander (b. 8 December 1732), Johann Wendel (b. about 1735), Johann Georg (born 23 March 1741), and Johann Heinrich (born 17 March 1744). The Meisner family immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) where they settled in the colony of Julianenebene on 24 July 1761.
