Gottlob Meisner has German Roots .

Germany-Denmark-Russia

Family A 22-32 in The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766.

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

Although I have been unable to find a birth record thus far, his general birth year is revealed in The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766, which says he was 60 years old in 1761. This means he was born around 1701.

He married Elisabeth Catharina Laud on 16 September 1732. This marriage record also reveals the maiden name of his wife, his father's name, and his wife's father'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. 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 his sons, eager to provide a better life for his family, decided the opportunity to immigrate to Denmark was too attractive to pass up.

Gottlob and Elisabeth Catharina 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 distinct families. The children still living with he and his wife at that time were:

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

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.

Although he would have most likely left Denmark for Russia, he passed away in 1764, and his son Johann Georg Meisner took over as the head of the household B-1062. Johann Georg and his brother Johann Heinrich did in fact immigrate to Russia.


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.
