Heinrich Pfeifer and Anna Maria Schwab

Heinrich Pfeifer was born in about 1770 to Johannes Pfeifer and Katerina Jäger and was of Pfeifer, Saratov, Russia. 


Heinrich married first Anna Maria Schwab. Anna Maria was born in about 1773 to Matthias Schwab and Maria Anna Bassian and was of Semenovka, Saratov, Russia.

The 1834 Herzog census mentions probable son Adam’s stepmother, meaning that Heinrich probably married second Katharine –.

 
Heinrich and Anna Maria’s children are:

    1. Mathias Pfeifer, born in about 1795, of Pfeifer, Saratov, Russia, married Catherine —.
    2. Peter Pfeifer, born in about Apr 1798, of Pfeifer, Saratov, Russia.
    3. probably Adam Pfeifer, born in 1800, married (Justina?) Katharina Billinger, died in Herzog, Samara, Russia. He would have married a woman whose family probably came from Franzosen (along the same river as Pfeifer) and later moved to Herzog, where his probable father-in-law came from. 

     

    Secondary sources also mention another son but I have not seen primary sources confirming the following:

     

    1. Johannes Pfeifer, born 1806 in Pfeifer, Frank, Saratov, Russia, married Maria A. Benz.
