Christian Rusch has German Roots.

Family #22 in the 1767 Grimm census.

Family #106 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Kulberg Lists [1]

Rusch Samuel, Lutheran, farmer from Mecklenburg, document number 7455, wife Anna; children: Georg, age 9, Christian, 9 months old, Helena, age 20, and Catherina, age 8.

1767 Grimm Census [2]

In this record, a son Friedrich, age 18, is named. He would have been 17 in 1766 and should have appeared in the Kulberg Lists, but is missing. Daughter Helena is missing and probably was married and living in another household. Catharina is missing, unless her full name was Catharina Maria Dorothea.

The ages of the children are off, but the family probably only gave approximate ages to those collecting personal data.
