Anton Haberkorn and Magdalena Grimm

Citing this biography: Boyd, Michelle, "Anton Haberkorn and Magdalena Grimm," article, Olive and Eliza, last accessed [current date]."

Anton Haberkorn was born about 1778 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia to Johannes Haberkorn and Magdalena Ziegler.

Anton married Magdalena Grimm. Magdalena was born about 1778 in Kamenka, Kamyshin, Saratov, Russia to Joseph Grimm and Eva Maria Kloster.

Anton died Oct 16 1831 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia.

Identifying Magdalena's Parents

A case for the identity of Magdalena's parents can be made through the 1798 census and church records. In the First Settlers List, there are several Grimm families in Grimm, Hildmann, and Norka and a Kram/Krim family in Kamenka. A search of these families shows that only one family, Joseph and Eva (Kloster) Kram or Krim, have a member of the family named Magdalena in their household. Joseph appears in the Kulberg List as a Grimm. This Magdalena is of the right age to be the Magdalena Grimm (also appears in one church record as Krim) who married Anton Haberkorn.

Clues that confirm that Joseph and Eva were Magdalena's parents can be found in the Semenovka parish records. An Antonius Haberkorn appears as the witness at the marriage of Vithus Krieger and Maria Anna Krim and a sponsor at the baptism of Antonius Krieger, the son of Vitus Krieger and Maria Anna Krim. In addition, a Marianna Kriegerinn appears as the sponsor of Maria Anna Haberkorn, one of Anton and Magdalena's daughters. Marianna is a variation of the name Maria Anna and women often appear in these records with an -inn added to the end of their surnames, so Marianna Kriegerinn is probably the same as Maria Anna Krim, the wife of Vitus Krieger. In addition, a Peter Krim appears as the sponsor in the baptism of Anton and Magdalena's son Johann Peter and is probably another relative of Magdalena. Returning to the census, not only does a Magdalena appear as Joseph and Eva's child but so does a Maria Anna and a Peter. Taken together, the 1798 census and the church records seem to imply a high probability that Magdalena (Grimm) Haberkorn was the daughter of Joseph and Eva.

Anton and Magdalena’s children are:

1 Johann Peter Haberkorn, born 8 May 1804 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia, christened 10 May 1804 in Semenovka, Saratov, Russia, married Christina Rausch.

Wife: Christina Rausch.

2 Maria Anna Haberkorn, born 12 Jan 1808 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia, christened 13 Jan 1808 in Semenovka, Saratov, Russia.

3 Elisabetha Haberkorn, born 6 Feb 1810 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia, christened the same day in Semenovka, Saratov, Russia.

4 Anna Maria Haberkorn, born 2 Jun 1812 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia, christened 3 Jun 1812 in Semenovka, Saratov, Russia, married Franz Mehler 23 Nov 1831 in Leichtling, Saratov, Russia.

Husband: Franz Mehler, b. abt. 1812 in Leichtling, Saratov, Russia to Johann Friedrich Mehler and Maria Agnes Dreitz, m. 2) Catharina Gottfried.

5 Catharina Haberkorn, born 26 Oct 1814 in Göbel, Saratov, Russia, christened the same day in Semenovka, Saratov, Russia.
