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.
