Volga German
Margaretha Strecker was a Volga German.
Margaretha Strecker has German Roots.

Family #56a in the 1767 Grimm census.

It's important to note that this census record says she was a widow, but lists her last name at birth as Strecker via the name of her father, Wilhelm Strecker. This record does not mentioned her married surname. Neither the Kulberg Reports nor Danish immigration records show anyone with that surname. [1] [2] She was living with the Johann Georg Abig family at the time of the 1767 census. Living quite close to them was Friedrich Strecker, 10 years older than Anna Margaretha, who was from the Württemberg area and was living with his wife and newborn daughter. It's possible that Anna Margaretha and Friedrich were siblings, with Wilhelm Strecker as their father. If Anna Margaretha was Friedrich's younger sister, it's not clear why she wasn't living with him. It's possible that the Abigs were related to the Streckers. Based on their similar ages, they may have been first cousins or perhaps more loosely related. They also may have been related to her deceased husband. There was only one Abig family listed in the Kulberg Reports, and that was the family with whom she was living in 1767.
