Margaretha Barbara Lonsinger was the daughter of Matthias Wilhelm Lonsinger and an unnamed wife. Her family was from the principality of Hohenlohe in Württemberg. She and her husband Jakob grew up during a time when many families in that area were struggling to survive. The economic conditions in Wuerttemberg mid-1700s were poor, due to war, famine, high taxes and burdensome tithing expected by the local Church. As a farmer, her father had difficulty providing for his family and had poor prospects for the future.

In 1759, the Danish government offered these disadvantaged Germans a chance for a new life in Denmark, helping to farm what was currently unfarmable land. Those who chose to immigrate would be given an opportunity for a brighter future via homesteaded land or through a land lottery.

Margaretha Barbara's family arrived in the Flensburg, Schleswig on 24 July 1762. [1] On 24 April 1765, the family was recorded as living at Number 1 Dans Hof in Colony F14 Koenigsheide, in the region of Flensburg.[1]

After unsuccessfully farming the Danish marshlands and after Catherine the Great issued her invitation for Germans to immigrate to Russia, Margaretha Barbara's father decided to move his family east. The exact date on which they departed Denmark isn't clear, but the family's name is included on a list of immigrants who helped establish the Colony of Grimm in 1765.[1]

By 1775, Margaretha Barbara's mother had passed away and her father had married Eva Katharina, the widow Merkel. [2] She had two daughters ages 14 and 7.[2] While her brother remained with their family in household #65, Margaretha Barbara had married fellow German and Danish immigrant Johann Jakob Fritzler and had two children of her own, Johann Michael and Johann Christoph.[2] They lived in household #37.[2]

In the 1798 census, there is a notation that her husband Jakob was incurably ill. [3] He is not listed in the 1834 census and because of his illness, he most likely died in the early 1800s. [4] Either she remarried or she, too, died before 1834.


Research Notes

From: https://www.volgagermans.org/who-are-volga-germans/origins/surnames/lonsinger:

Matthias Wilhelm Lonsinger, son of Jonathan & Anna Maria Lonsinger, was baptized on 25 September 1720 in the Pfullingen Lutheran Church. He married Anna Barbara, and they had three children, each baptized in the Feldrennach Lutheran Church, southeast of Karlsruhe. [Since 1973, Feldrennach has been part of the municipality Straubenhardt.] Their children's names are: (1) Anna Barbara (born 12 February 1748; baptized 13 February 1748); (2) Maria Barbara (born & baptized 12 November 1749); and (3) Matthias Wilhelm (born 8 September 1753; baptized 9 September 1753).
Matthias Wilhelm and his family immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), departing from Altona, Duchy of Holstein, on 19 July 1762 under the leadership of Georg Jakob Seiler. They arrived in the city of Flensburg, Duchy of Schleswig, on 24 July 1762. They lived in Denmark until 16 November 1765 when they immigrated to Russia.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm where they are recorded on the 1775 Census in Household No. 37. Son Matthias is recorded on the 1798 Census in Household No. Gm080.
