Eva Maria is listed with her family in The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766. Her father was Johann Georg Reisig, a Tagelöhner from Schwaben. At the time that the family immigrated to Denmark, his wife's name was Maria Barbara, 13 years younger than her husband. She may have been Johann Georg's second wife. There was a five year gap between the birth of Eva Maria, who appears to be the oldest child, and brother Johann Jakob, age 11.

Danish records put her at 16 or17 in 1761, giving her a birth year of 1747. This year is consistent in the 1775 and 1798 Grimm census records. I am still looking for a birth record that more closely matches 1747.

While in Denmark, Eva Maria's father passed away. His widow, Maria Barbara, was last listed in a Danish colony on 09 September 1763. After that, the family drifted apart as children married and determined whether they would leave Denmark for Russia, and where their final destination would be. One brother went to Shcherbakovka, while two others went to Grimm.

While in Denmark, Eva Maria married fellow traveler Ludwig Kaiser. Although the couple is not shown occupying a household together she is listed as Eva Maria Reisig Kaiser in the departure records for those going to Russia.

Although she doesn't appear in the 1767 Grimm census, Eva Maria is listed in the 1775 Grimm census with her husband Ludwig Kaiser in family #45. At the time of the census, they had two children:

  • Johann Michael, born 1771
  • Eva Katharina, born 1773

In the 1798 census, she and her husband had three sons, none of whom was Johann Michael:

  • Johannes, born 1778
  • Johann Anton, born 1781
  • Johann Heinrich, born 1786

Additionally, the couple had another daughter, Eleonora Kaiser, who was born around 1781 and married before the 1798 census was taken, allowing for her to never be listed in a census with her birth parents. A reconstruction of the three Kaiser lines in Grimm helped identify to which family Eleonora belonged.

Her sons Johann Anton and Johann Heinrich are listed in the 1834 census, but not Johann Michael or Johannes. It's not clear if they were still living, perhaps in a different village, or if they had already passed away. Neither Eva nor Ludwig is listed in the 1834 census, and it is most likely that they were no longer living.
