Konrad Schäfer married Elisabeta Schrill. Elisabeta was born about 1735. It is not known where they lived but Elisabeta's second husband is recorded as coming from either the regions of Fulda or Pfalz and as Elisabeta and her children are recorded as arriving in Russia with him, they were probably from the same place.
