Neither Johannes Rau nor his wife are listed in the 1834 census. His son Nikolaus Rau is listed as the stepson of Jakob Polst, household #177 in that same census. This means that Johannes Rau passed away at some point after 1798 but before 1816. His wife remarried Jakob Polst at some point prior to 1816, and Mr. Polst died in 1816. (The year 1816 is mentioned here not only because that was the year of Polst's death, but because that was the year of the interim census which tallied men only, not any women.) These details in abbreviated form can be found in the 1834 Grimm census.
