Johann Jakob and his wife Maria Elisabeth by the 1897 Grimm census are living in Tsaritsyn: Family #956 in the 1897 Grimm census.
Tsaritsyn (1589-1925) later became Stalingrad. The construction of the railway line towards Kalach-on-Don (1862) and Gryazi (1872) led to the economic growth and made Tsaritsyn a transport junction between the Caspian and the Black Seas, the Caucasus and the central part of Russia.
"In the 19th century Tsaritsyn became an important river-port and commercial center. The population expanded rapidly, increasing from fewer than 3,000 people in 1807 to about 84,000 in 1900."
"In 1918 White troops under the Ataman of the Don Cossack Host, Pyotr Krasnov, besieged Tsaritsyn. The Reds repulsed three assaults by the Whites. However, in June 1919 the White Armed Forces of South Russia under the command of General Denikin captured Tsaritsyn, which they held until January 1920. The fighting from July 1918 to January 1920 became known as the Battle for Tsaritsyn."
