Heinrich Säger and Anna Maria --

Heinrich Säger was born about 1727 in Garmer, an unidentified town in the Electorate of Mainz (in what is now Germany). Heinrich married Anna Maria --. Anna Maria was born about 1721, probably in or around Garmer. They arrived 31 May 1766 in Russia from Rewal, Gryfice County, West Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland aboard the pink Slon, along with four children. Heinrich was listed as a Catholic and a farmer.

The couple and two of their daughters settled in Leichtling, Saratov, Russia 14 June 1767. Their son Valentin was not listed with them and likely died before they settled in Leichtling. Their daughter Katharina was not listed either but she had just married and had arrived with her new husband a month before.

Heinrich and Anna Maria's children are:

  1. Valentin Säger, born about 1746, not listed with his family in 1767 (and may have died after arriving in Russia and before the family settled in Leichtling).
  2. Katharina Säger, born about 1748, married Johannes Biehn (b. abt. 1747 in Hammelburg, Bavaria, Germany, d. 1825) about 1767, settled at Leichtling, Saratov, Russia 14 May 1767.
  3. Cunigunda Säger, born about 1754 or 1756, married Georg Holzmann (b. abt 1749, d. 1820).
  4. Anna Maria Säger, born about 1761.
