Family #71 in the 1834 Grimm census.
Family #75 in the 1857 Grimm census.
In the 1834 census, his name is Wilhelm, but in the 1857 census it is Valentin. They were both born in the same year to the same parents, so they are the same person. Valentin was probably his middle name which was omitted in error in the 1834 census. By the time he was an adult in 1850 and 1857, he was using his middle name, Valentin, as his every day name, so that was the only name given to the 1850 census taker.
