Family #163 in the 1775 Grimm census.
1775 Grimm Census 
By 1798, her husband was married to a different woman. Since divorce was rare in the Volga German villages, it is more likely that she had passed away and her husband remarried. Eldest son Johann Michael was married and living in his father's household, but sister Christina Juliana was not. She would have been about 23 years old in 1798 and was most likely married and living in another household. It's difficult to determine which woman was the mother of the rest of the children. Typically the census states whether a person was the child of a first or second wife, but there is nothing to this effect in the entry for this family. If his first wife died shortly after 1775, then his second wife may have been the only mother his children ever knew. For this reason, it may not have seemed important to distinguish who each child's mother was. A copy of this census entry is shown below to establish a time frame for her death and to connect her to possible children.
