Biography

Volga German
Juliana Rau is a Volga German.
Juliana Rau has German Roots.


Family #12 in the 1767 Grimm census.
Family #94 in the 1775 Grimm census.


Juliana Rau was the daughter of Balthasar Rau of Darmstadt, Germany. Her parents immigrated to Russia when she was nine years old. There is a Balzer Rau listed in the Kulberg Reports, and it appears like it is a match with her father's name and family members.

"Rau Balzer, Luth., farmer from Darmstadt, doc. No. 2411, wife: Maria, children: Heinrich, 4, Anna, 9, Julianna, 6, Susanna, 1/6." [emphasis added] [1]

The family arrived in Russia on 22 July 1766 via the pink "Lev." [1] No ages are listed for Balzer and his wife Anna Maria. There is no mention of the family in the Volga German Transportation List. [2] The one possible misspelling of the name as Rausch is not a match.


Kulberg Reports [3]

"Rau Balzer, Luth., farmer from Darmstadt, doc. No. 2411, wife: Maria, children: Heinrich, 4, Anna, 9, Julianna, 6, Susanna, 1/6." [emphasis added]


She is listed in the 1767 Grimm census as the daughter of Balthasar and Maria, seven years old. She had two brothers and one older sister. [4] Her sister Susanna is not included in the 1767 census, meaning she probably did not survive the journey to the Volga River and Grimm.


1767 Grimm Census [5]

Family # 12
Head of the Household Balthasar Rau, age 35, Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt
Wife Maria Rau, age 37
Child #1 Johann Heinrich Rau, age 5
Child #2 Johann Georg Philipp Rau, age 1 week
Child #3 Anna Margaretha Rau, age 12
Child #4 Julianna Rau, age 7


By 1775, her siblings Anna and Heinrich are no longer listed in the Grimm census with her. She and her brother Johann Georg Philipp are the only two children from the 1767 census still listed with the family. Only her sister Anna, born in 1757, would have been old enough to be married and living in another household. It is most likely that brother Heinrich did not survive past 1774.


1775 Grimm Census [6]

Family # 94
Head of the Household Balthasar Rau, age 45
Wife Elisabeth Rau, age, 46
Child #1 Johann Philipp Rau, age 8
Child #2 Juliana Rau, age 16
Brother-in-Law David Lutz, age 23
Wife of Brother-in-Law Anna Margaretha Rau Lutz, age 18


She is not included with her father in the 1798 Grimm census. [7] She was by that time probably married and lived with her husband's family. Her brother Philip named a daughter after her.
