Family # 71 in the 1765 Grimm census.
Family #2 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Jakob Maus was born about 1735, probably in the Darmstadt area of what is now Germany. I have not yet been able to confirm his parents' names. He and his family were one of the founding families of Grimm and named Colony Assessor at the time of the 1775 census.
According to the Kulberg Reports, Johann Jakob Maus, Lutheran, was a tailor from Darmstadt traveling on document number 5046.
Traveling with him were his wife Eva and son Johann, 1.5 years of age.
He and his family arrived in Russia on 29 August 1766.
They traveled via the Luebeck ship "Apollo" which was commanded by Detlov Merberg.
His name is not in the Volga transportation list, but they may have traveled to the Volga region at a different time.
This is the only possible birth record I've been able to find online.
