Elisabeth Katharina (Wittmann) Kaiser is a Volga German.
Elisabeth Katharina (Wittmann) Kaiser has German Roots.
Elisabeth Katharina (Wittmann) Kaiser migrated from Russia (German) to Wisconsin, USA.
Elisabeth Katharina was born in 1864 in Grimm, Russia. She married Philipp Jakob Kaiser in Grimm, and the couple went on to have these documented children:
Amalia Kaiser, born 1887
Katharina Kaiser, born 1888
Philipp Jakob Kaiser, born 1890
Katharina Elisabeth Kaiser, born 1896
Heinrich Jakob Kaiser, born 1902
Alexander W. Kaiser, born 1904
In the 1897 Grimm census, Philipp Jakob Kaiser's wife is named Anna Elisabeth. It's not confirmed if she is the same person as Katharina Elisabeth or if Katharina Elisabeth was a second wife. I've included the census here for reference purposes.
