Family #22 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #56 in the 1834 Grimm census.
This surname is of Jewish origin. It may account for how some Volga Germans reportedly have Ashkenazi DNA . She was not born in Grimm. Because of her Jewish heritage, she may have been born in a Ukraine village, the area of the Pale of Settlement where Russian Jews were required to live. Clearly, she or her family moved north to the Volga region of Russia before 1798.

She is not specifically mentioned in the 1834 census, but her husband and sons are. She most likely passed away some time prior to 1834. Her last child was born in 1821, so she passed away between 1821 and 1834. Her husband had not yet remarried by the time of the 1834 census, so that may indicate a death closer to that year.
A copy of the 1834 census is included below to connect her to her 9 children and 6 grandchildren.
