Valentin Billinger and Maria Eva Bauer 



Valentin Billinger was born in about 1770 to Andreas Billinger and Anna Maria Schock and was of Herzog, Samara, Russia. Valentin moved with his parents to Franzosen, Saratov, Russia in 1786. 


Valentin married Maria Eva Bauer in 1793 in Franzosen, Saratov, Russia. Maria Eva was born in about 1774 to Peter Bauer and Susanna — and was of Schuck, Frank, Saratov, Russia.

 
Valentin and Maria Eva’s children are:

    1. Peter Billinger, born in about 1795, of Franzosen, Saratov, Russia.
    2. Philip Billinger, born in about 1797, of Franzosen, Saratov, Russia.
    3. probably (Justina?) Katharina Billinger, born about 1807 in Russia, married Adam Pfeifer, died in Herzog, Samara, Russia. She would have married a man whose family probably came from Pfeifer (along the same river as Franzosen) and later moved to Herzog, where Valentin came from.  There are also Billingers in the colony of Reinwald but this was a Lutheran colony and while the switch between religions did happen, it was less likely.
