Biography

Volga German
Elisabeth (Schrafler) Felde is a Volga German.
Elisabeth (Schrafler) Felde has German Roots.


Family #161 in the 1775 Grimm census.
Family #94 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #94 in the 1834 Grimm census.


Elisabeth Schrafler was born about 1751, probably in the Darmstadt area of what is now Germany. She is not listed under the surname Schrafler in any of the traditional immigration sources, either as the child of other immigrants or the bride or wife of a male immigrant. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] It's possible she was married previously, and that it was her first husband's surname that was given, in error, as her last name at birth in the 1798 Grimm census.


1775 Grimm Census [6]

Family # 161
Head of the Household Konrad Felte [sic], age 24
Wife Elizabeta Felte [sic], age 23
Child #1 Anna Margareta Felte [sic], age 3
Child #2 Elizabeta Margareta Felte [sic], age 2
Mother Elizabeta Felte [sic], age 48 [sic] -- she was probably 55 based on her age at the 1767 census
Brother #1 Johann [Valentin] Felte [sic], age 18 [sic] -- he was probably 25 based on his age at the 1767 census
Brother #2 Sebastian Felte [sic], age 13


1798 Grimm Census [7]

Note that there were two Valentins in this census: Johann Valentin, age 21, and Valentin, age 11. Perhaps the oldest one went by Johann or the combination of first and second name together.

Additionally, they also had two daughters named Anna Margaretha: One born in 1772 and the other born in 1794. It's possible that the elder Anna Margaretha was already out of the house and married by the time her sister with the same name was born.

Family # 94
Head of the Household Konrad Felde, age 47
Wife Elizabeta [sic] Schrafler [?], age 45
Child #1 Johann Valentin Felde, age 21 -- Valentin the elder
Child #2 Andreas Felde, age 16
Child #3 Valentin Felde, age 11 -- Valentin the younger
Child #4 Johann Christian Felde, age 9
Child #5 Anna Katharina Felde, age 18
Child #6 Anna Margaretha Felde, age 4


Elisabeth's husband Konrad passed away in 1818 when he was 66 years old. If she outlived him, she may have remarried. Her children were old enough so that she could have moved into a different household without needing to bring them with her. What is clear is that by 1834, she was probably deceased. Had she survived, she would have been 83 years old.


1834 Grimm Census [8]

Family # 94

Grandchild #6 Anna Margaretha Felde, age 13
Grandchild #7 Maria Barbara Felde, age 11
Child #2 Johann Christian Felde, age 26 in 1816, to household #47
Grandchild Johann Christian Felde, age 7 years 6 months in 1816, to Franzosen in 1833, grandson by an unnamed son, presumably not Johann Valentin, the elder, or Johann Christian, since they are listed in this census entry, leaving his father to be Andreas or the younger Valentin
