Elisabeth Streb was the daughter of Johann Michael Streb and Margaretha (Unknown) Streb, and Johannes Becker's second wife. According to Einwanderung in das Wolgagebiet 1764-1767, her father was a farmer from Pommern, about 150 miles west of Frankfurt. [1] They probably first lived in Dobrinka before moving to Grimm.
