Volga German
Conrad Rupp is a Volga German.

Family #75 in the 1767 Dobrinka census.
Family #160 in the 1798 Grimm census.

His existence is documented by his widow and at least two children who are listed in the 1798 census.

1798 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 160
Head of the Household David Schwemmer, age 55
Wife Anna Margaretha Rupp Schwemmer, age 54, from Dobrinka, second wife
Child #1 Katharina Schwemmer, age 24, by deceased wife Katharina
Anna Margaretha's children by deceased husband Mr. Rupp:
Child #2 Johann Michael Rupp, age 20
Child #3 Elisabeth Rupp, age 30

I checked the 1767 Dobrinka census, of which I have a copy, and it appears that his name was Conrad/Konrad Rupp. He and his wife had at least one older child, Johann Christian, who was 9 months old when the 1767 census was taken in August of that year. This means the child's birth was likely in December of 1766, probably in Oranienbaum, Russia.

1767 Dobrinka Census [2]

Family # 75
Head of the Household Conrad Rupp, age 22, Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt Seilzlas [?]
Wife Anna Margaretha Rupp, age 27
Child #1 Johann Christian Rupp, age 9 months

Conrad Rupp is not named in the Kulberg Reports [3] nor in The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766. [4]
