He married Maria Maria Sophia Vogel(sen) about 1761. The couple had one daughter, Maria Catharina, when they immigrated to Denmark, also traveling with a maid, Margaretha Magdalena Reitern. [2] They arrived at the immigrant processing site in Altona, Duchy of Holstein on 24 May 1762. Five days later they arrived in Flensburg, Duchy of Schleswig.[3] Considered reserve colonists, they resided at Wohnstelle Number 31 in Colony G18 Neubörm, in the region of Gottorf. [4] Frustrated with their efforts at successful farming, the family left Denmark on 12 January 1765 and immigrated to Russia, along with other Germans in Denmark. [5] They first settled in an earlier established village, like Dobrinka, but then later moved to their final place of residence, Grimm. This is why they are not listed in the 1767 Grimm census. [6]

Johann Georg Schmal and his family are first listed in the 1775 Grimm census.

Georg is not listed in the 1834 Grimm census and was probably deceased. Had he survived, he would have been 97 years old. The death years of all males in the Volga German villages was always noted in the next census. The fact that his name is missing from the 1834 census suggests that he died before the 1816 census and his death was noted there. Had been alive in 1816 when the male-only census was taken, he would have been 77 years old.
