According the to Movement Tables in the 1798 Grimm census, Margaretha was the daughter of Heinrich Wiederhold of Messer. She married Johannes Schneider in Grimm. The two towns were some of the geographically closest among the villages along the Volga River, so she did not move a great distance from her family.

Margaretha is not specifically mentioned in the 1834 Grimm census, but that does not necessarily mean she is deceased, as was her husband. She may have remarried and taken any living children with her to her new home. They may be counted in another census entry. If she was still living in 1834, she would have been 60 years old. Unfortunately, if she and Johannes had any children, they are not accounted for in either the 1798 census, when the couple had no children, or in the 1834 census, at least not in the entry which tells of her husband's death. See the census entry show below; the only children listed are those of two of his brothers.
