Conrad Resch and Barbara Reis

Conrad Resch was born about 1779 and was of Hildmann, Saratov, Russia. He was listed in a separate household than any other Reschs (except his wife) in 1798 and there are no known existing church records in Hildmann at the time of his birth, so it is difficult to determine who his parents were with absolute certainty. However, he was almost certainly the grandson of the widow Anna Margaretha Resch, who settled in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia, as there are no other Reschs in the colony. Clues as to which of her sons was his father can be found by looking at church records. A Bartolomeus Resch and his wife Barbara was listed as the godparents in Conrad's daughter Barbara's 1807 birth record. A Bartholomeus Resch was also one of the witnesses at Barbara's wedding (the other witness being a member of the groom's mother's family). This implies a close relationship between Conrad's family and Bartholomeus and that Bartholomeus was old enough in 1807 to have a wife. A look at the Hildmann 1798 census reveals only one person by that name, Bartolomäus Resch, son of Nikolaus Resch by his unnamed first wife. Conrad was most likely the son of Nikolaus Resch, making Bartolomäus a younger brother and a likely person to serve as both the godfather and marriage witness for Barbara Resch.

Conrad married Barbara Reis. Barbara was born about 1772 and
had married first Johann Gallinger. Barbara's parents are not currently known but she was likely the daughter of one of two couples named Reiss who settled in Hildmann in 1767, Adam and Katharina Reiss or Wilhelm and Katharina Reiss. Both Adam and Wilhelm were from Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, Germany and were likely related to each other, perhaps even brothers. Click here to learn more about the Reiss family.

Conrad and Barbara lived in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia in 1798, along with Barbara's children by her first husband. Conrad likely had a second wife whose name is not now known. This is implied by the fact that Barbara would have been in her late fifties when Conrad's two youngest children, Anna Elisabeta and Magdalena, were born. It is known that Conrad was married to Barbara in 1798 and she was listed as daughter Barbara's mother, so it is safe to say that she was the mother of Maria Eva and Johannes as well. It is not known when Barbara died and therefore, whether she was the mother of Jakob, Heinrich, Konrad, and Katerina.

Conrad died in 1823 (Hildmann 1834 census).
No wife was listed in the 1834 census and it can be assumed that she had died by the time of the census as well.

Johann and Barbara's children are:

  1. Juliana Gallinger, born about 1790 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
  2. Elisabeth Gallinger, born about 1792 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
  3. Friedrich Gallinger, born about 1795 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia, died in 1817 (Hildmann 1834 census).
Conrad and Barbara's children are (the information below comes from the Hildmann 1834 census, except for information on Barbara):
  1. Maria Eva Resch, born about 1802 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
  2. Johannes Resch, born about 1805 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia, married Elisabeta Schamberger (b. abt. 1804).
  3. Barbara Resch, born 28 Apr 1807 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia, married Franz Xavier Schäfer (b. 11 July1806 in Köhler, Saratov, Russia to Georg Anton Schäfer and Catharina Elisabetha Bellentier, bp. 15 Jul 1806 in Semenovka parish, Saratov, Russia) 22 Jan 1828 in Köhler, Saratov, Russia.
Conrad also had the following children by either Barbara or an unknown second wife (the information below comes from the Hildmann 1834 census, except for information on Jakob's probable second wife):
  1. Jakob Resch, born about 1811 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia, married 1) Eleanora Huss (b. abt. 1814) and probably 2) Elisabetha --. Jakob was probably the Jacobus Resch who was a witness at sister Barbara's wedding.
  2. Heinrich Resch, born about 1813 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia, died in 1833.
  3. Konrad Resch, born about 1819 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
  4. Katerina Resch, born about 1824 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
Conrad's children, almost certainly by an unknown second wife, are:
  1. Anna Elisabeta Resch, born about 1830 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
  2. Magdalena Resch, born about 1831 in Hildmann, Saratov, Russia.
