Discussion & Documentation
      Andreas Grün, son of Johannes Grün (b.1699) and Anna Elisabeth Heylmann, was born in Wolf, Büdingen, Oberhessen (Germany) on 17 August 1732. He married there on 12 March 1761 to Maria Anna Appolonia Hart, daughter of Johannes Hart (1706 - 13 November 1747) and Anna Dorothea Trieber (1708 - 17 December 1747). Andreas and Appolonia had 2 children in Germany before leaving for Russia: Wilhelm Friedrich (b. 3 October 1872) and Christina (b. 28 July 1765).
      These two children are presumed to have died either in Germany or en route to the Volga, because the couple is recorded on the 1767 census of Balzer (Household No. 67) without children. They had arrived in Balzer on 18 June 1767.
      Andreas is a cousin of Johann Heinrich Grün who settled in Kutter.
