Schultheis Name Meaning
German (Schultheiss) and Dutch: status name from Middle High German schultheize ‘village headman’. The term originally denoted a man responsible for collecting dues and paying them to the lord of the manor. See also Schultz 1.
"In medieval Germany, the Schultheiß (German: [ˈʃʊltaɪs]) was the head of a municipality (akin to today's office of mayor), a Vogt or an executive official of the ruler. As official (villicus) it was his duty to order his assigned village or county (villicatio) to pay the taxes and perform the services due to the ruler. The name originates from this function: Schuld ‘debt’ + heißen ‘to order’. Later, the title was also used for the head of a town (Stadtschultheiß) or village (Dorfschultheiß)."

Konrad's great-grandfather Johann Heinrich Schultheis can be tracked to Waldlaubersheim, Kreis Kreuznach, Rheinland, Preußen where he was born. Johann Heinrich then farmed in Darmstadt, Hesse prior to immigrating and then settling in Grimm, Saratov, Russia.
↑ Dona Reeves-Marquardt found the record for the baptism of Herr Schulteiss in the church records in Waldlaubersheim, Kreis Kreuznach, Rheinland. This family first settled in Grimm where they arrived before 1775 Grimm census #73 (but not in time to be included in the FSL) and were included in the 1775 census (household 73) there.
