In this record, his wife is recorded as the family's closest contact back in Grimm. The entry for this family lists Jakob, his daughter Marie, and three brothers ages 11, 10 and 8. It's not clear if there were younger children who remained in Grimm with his wife mother. There is also the possibility that his wife was pregnant and chose not to immigrate until after her baby was born.
