Volga German
Katharina (Schickendanz) Albrandt is a Volga German.
Katharina (Schickendanz) Albrandt has German Roots.

Family #47 in the 1798 Grimm census.

After searching through German birth records, it looks as though her surname was misspelled either by the original census taker or the translator. The translator has placed a question mark after the LNAB, so clearly there was concern about the spelling. The German records I searched most commonly spelled the surname Schickendanz or Schickentanz. I am using this spelling: Schickendanz. The others will be listed as alternate versions of the name.

In the 1767 Grimm census, she is called Maria Margaretha Schekendanz, daughter of Georg Schekendanz, an orphan who was living with the Konrad Leonhard family. Unfortunately it doesn't give her age, so one must refer to another census with her name and work backwards with her current age to get an estimated birth year. She was 42 years old in 1798, which gives her a birth year of about 1756. This matches the 1775 census, which gives her age as 19, giving her a birth year of 1756.

The only difference is that she is referred to by three different names in each census:

  • 1767: Maria Margaretha
  • 1775: Katharina
  • 1798: Maria Katharina

This may be one of those cases where she actually had three names: Maria Katharina Margaretha. It also could be that there was a census taker error in the 1767 census. But clearly, they all refer to the same person.

Maria Katharina Margaretha is not listed in the 1834 census with any of her sons and their families. [4] It's possible that she remarried after her husband's death and was living in another family, and it's also possible that she passed away. Had she survived, she would have been 78 years old.
