  • Notes 
    • 1766 Kuhlberg List #3559
      The Luebeck Ship, Skipper Wiebe Heinrichson 8 Aug 1766
      Wilhelm Kloss
      Ref, farmer from Braunfels
      Wife: Anna
      Children: Johann 6, Wilhelmina 10

      1767 Kukkus First Settler List #50
      Wilhelm Kloss
      Age 45, ref, farmer from Holzhausen, Braunfels
      Wife: Anna Maria 30

      Apparently the two children did not survive the transport to Kukkus.

      Name Wilhelm Class (Klaus), from Koelschhausen, Braunfels appears in Solms-Braunfels Archives asking to be allowed to leave for Volga Russia in 1766.

      First settler list does not show any children, but Adam Klaus born 1758 is on the 1798 Kukkus census. Possibly he is the same as Johann Klaus, which would mean that the first settler list is mistaken. Or perhaps the age is incorrect.

      Koelschausen Ortsfamilienbuch shows Johann WIlhelm Closs born 27 Apr 1721 in Niederlemp and married Anna Elisabeth Schultz 12 May 1755 in Koelschhausen. May or may not be the same person.
