Family #6 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #74 in the 1834 Grimm census.
She was the daughter of Johann Nicolaus Rutz. Originally from Germany, he immigrated to Denmark with hundreds of other Germans, including his parents and siblings. After his arrival in Denmark he was listed separately from his father, most likely indicating he had married and started his own family. Elisabeth was probably his oldest child, born in Denmark.
Danish records show that he was considered a reserve colonist, just as his father was.
In November of 1764 he lived at Number 3 Fraueen Fleiss in Colony G5 Friderichsanbau, in the district of Gottorf.
On 27 April 1765 he deserted Denmark and went to the new Colony of Doenhof in the Volga Region of Russia. His parents and siblings remained behind in Denmark.
Elisabeth and her family are listed in the 1775 Dönhof census.

She is not specifically named in the 1834 Grimm census, but her husband and son Heinrich are. While she could have remarried after the death of her husband in 1817 and was living in a different household in 1834, she most likely died before that year. Had she survived to the next census, she would have been 71 year old. A copy of the 1834 census is shown below to connect her to her sons and grandchildren.
