Volga German
Sofia (Tiner) Schwemmer is a Volga German.
Sofia (Tiner) Schwemmer has German Roots .

Family #139 in the 1798 Grimm census.
Family #237 in the 1834 Grimm census.

1798 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 139

Wife Sofia Tiner Schwemmer, age 25, from Galka, working in Sarepta, with passport
Child #1 Johann Balthasar Schwemmer, age 2
Child #2 Johann Georg Adam Schwemmer, age 6 months

Sofia is not mentioned in the 1834 census and her husband died in 1816. It's possible that she, too, is deceased. It's also possible that she remarried, since she would have been only 43 at the time of her husband's death. Regardless, it appears that all her sons are listed in the original family entry in the 1834 census. I am showing the family's 1834 census entry below so she can be connected to her children and grandchildren.
