Family #35 in the 1798 Grimm census.
1798 Grimm Census 
Gottfried Rau is not mentioned in any other Grimm census, nor is his death mentioned, as would happen for all male residents of the Volga German villages. This suggests that he passed away before the 1816 male-only census was taken. His death would have been noted in the 1816 census, and not re-stated in the 1834 census. The only other way to confirm what happened to him would be through Grimm church records, perhaps a death record or a marriage record.
