Biography

Volga German
Apollonia (Unknown) Wittman is a Volga German.
Apollonia (Unknown) Wittman has German Roots.


Family #71 in the 1834 Grimm census.
Family #75 in the 1857 Grimm census.


Apollonia, last name at birth unknown, was born in 1813 in Grimm, Russia. She married Johannes Wittmann before 1831. The couple had three children:

  • Christian Jakob Wittmann, born 1832
  • Louisa Charlotta Wittmann, born 1834
  • Katharlina Elisabeth Wittmann, born 1839
  • Elisabeth Wittmann, born 1841

It's possible they had additional daughters born between 1835 and 1840 who were married and living with their husbands' families by 1857. In these cases, these females would never have been documented in a Russian census with their biological parents.

Apollonia was born after the 1798 census and married before the 1834 census. This means she was not captured in a census with her biological parents. Unless we find a descendant who has detailed private records, we will probably never know her last name at birth.

Studying the maternal haplogroup of Apollonia's female descendants could help narrow down her maternal ancestry.
