Johann Georg Saltzmann was born about 1737, probably in the Darmstadt area of what is now Germany.He may have been related to Balthasar and Brigitta Katharina Saltzmann, a married couple listed on the same page of the Kulberg Reports, just one family apart. [1] They could have been his parents, or they could have been siblings or cousins.

Johann Georg Saltzmann married Anna Catharina Räder [also identified in later records as Elisabeth Räder] in Büdingen on April 04, 1766, four months before the couple immigrated to Russia. [2] Just months later, in the Kulberg Reports, his wife is identified as Elisabeth Räder. [1] It seems highly unlikely that he would have taken a second bride in the four months that separated his marriage and his arrival in Russia; it is more likely that his bride had three names and she chose Elisabeth as her "every day" name, as opposed to Anna Catharina. That may have been because of numerous women in her family with the same name. Johann Georg Saltzmann is listed in the Kulberg Reports as a Lutheran hammer maker from Darmstadt, traveling under document 4387 with his new bride Elisabeth.[1]

His mother may have been Elisabeth Saltzmann, mother of Maria Elisabeth Saltzmann Hepp and Gottfried Saltzmann from family #37 in the 1767 census, and #115 in the 1775 census. [3] They immigrated to Russia together and settled in the same village, Grimm, living next to each other at the time of the 1767 and 1775 Grimm censuses.[3]
