Family #44 in the 1767 Grimm census.
Family #121 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Eva Katharina was born about 1740, probably in the Darmstadt area of what is now Germany. The names of her parents are unknown for now. She married her husband by 1756 and the couple went on to have eight children.

  1. Anna Maria (Albrandt) Seibel, born 1757
  2. Anna Catharina Albrandt, born 1760
  3. Johann Heinrich Albrandt, born 1762
  4. Anna Katharina (Albrandt) Fritzler, born 1766
  5. Heinrich Albrandt, born 1767
  6. Johann Andreas Albrandt, born, 1770
  7. Elisabeth Margaretha (Albrandt) Muth, born 1771
  8. Johann Heinrich Albrandt, born 1773

Her husband Andreas is listed in the Kulberg Reports as a Lutheran farmer from Darmstadt, so he must have made his way north after his birth, either with his parents or with his wife. [1] From Darmstadt he traveled to Luebeck with his wife and three children. They arrived in Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 on the ship called Apollo which was captained by Detlov Merberg. [2] She and her family were among the first settlers of Grimm, Russia.

A second daughter named after the deceased Anna Catharina was born in 1766, either in Germany, prior to August 1766, or in Russia, either in Oranienbaum or St. Petersburg. Their next child, a boy they named after first son Heinrich who did not survive, was born in 1767, either early in the year in St. Petersburg or Oranienbaum, or later in the year after they arrived in Grimm that July. The couple had three more children before 1775. [4]

Eva Katharina passed away between 1773 and 1775, leaving her husband a widower with six children, three of the children five or younger. [5]
