For information on her family's journey from German to Denmark, and then to Russia, see the discussion in her husband Michael Kober's profile.

Katharina Elisabeth Mauter was born around 1736, probably in Kleingartach, Brackenheim, Württemberg, which was her husband's place of birth, according to Danish records. It is a best estimate for now, until I can find a birth record for her. Update 11 October 2017: CVGS research using Parish records of Kleingartach (LDS Film No. 1184796) shows she was born "10 July 1738 and baptized in the Evangelical Church of Kleingartach." Her parents were Christoph Mauderer & Agnes Catharina Daub. [1]

Elisabeth Kober immigrated from Germany to Denmark in 1762 with her husband, Michael Kober. She is identified as Michael wife, but not by name. [2] She and her family arrived in Flensburg, the Duchy of Schleswig, on 19 June 1762.[2] Her husband told immigration officials they were from Kleingartach near Brackenheim, Württemberg.[2]

While in Denmark, the family were reserve colonists in Flensburg.[2] They are recorded as living at 17 Auf der Lühe in colony G2 Fridrichsfeld, in the region of Gottorf.[2] They were last documented in Denmark on 12 January 1765, after which they eventually left Denmark and immigrated to Grimm, Russia.[2]

In 1775, Elisabeth Kober appears in the census with her husband Michael and four children:

  • Rosina, born 1760
  • Katharina, born 1766
  • Philipp Michael, born 1770
  • Christoph Peter, born 1772
