_burg?GL: said by the Neidermonjou FSL to be homeUC to a Meier{Eva Elisabeth} orphan girl.

_emanFN: said by the Walter FSL to be fromUC Uendveisen, Hesse-Darmstadt.  The Walter Research project suggested that this might be Leman.

AabFN: see Ab.

AachGL, Freudenstadt [Amt], Wuerttemberg: is 3 miles E of Freudenstadt city, and was said by the 1816 Kassel census (#68) to be homeUC to the  widow Schmelzle who married Herr Sattler.  Named by the 1816 Neudorf census (#37) as a possible originUC of the Flaig family.

AalFN : see Ahl.

AalenGS [Imperial City], Swabia: this city was in the 1760’s an independent country controlling some not too extensive lands around the city which is some 8 miles S of Ellwangen city.  Said by a Woehrd ML to be homeUC to a Winter man whose daughter in 1766 married a Lauchner fromUC Wolkenstein, Bamberg; Lauchner later settled in Hoelzel (Mai&Marquardt#818).

Aargau CantonGL: see Aaron Canton.

Aaron CantonGL, Switzerland: said by the Kromm version of the Jagodnaja Poljana FSL to be homeUC to a Schweizer man who came here as a prisoner of war in 1812 (p.35).  This surely is Aargau Canton.

Ackermann{M.Katharina}: listed in the Recruiter Beauregard’s list as an orphan in the Richmeier/Rickmesser{Johannes} household (Lk73a).  in 1767 there was a six-member Ackermann{Johannes} household heading for the Volga said to be fromUC Waldeck  (K5478); most or all of them may have died since, with this possible exception, no record of the rest of them on the Volga; the family included 13-year-old Maria who looks to have been too old to be this lady, but whom the Pleve group assumed was  this one; I seriously doubt that.   She was in Luzern in 1798 (Mai1798:Lz21) ; is found in no FSL and no earlier colony is indicated; so was likely one of Luzern’s first settlers.

AlbergFN: said by KS:118 and by the Orlovskaya FSL (or58) to be fromUC Dessau (no locality mentioned); a Knoll step-son was living with them which would indicate that frau Alberg was previously frau Knoll.  Her maiden name was given as Lindtner in 1798 (Mai1798:Mv2187).  This family is recorded in archival materials as having sold their home in Anhalt-Dessau and as having left for Russia (Mai&Marquardt#1046).  Herr Alberg is mentioned as a god-parent for a Scheel child in Luebeck in 1766 (Mai&Marquardt#1310).

Albers{Dorothea E.}: married Gill{Nikolaus} 4 August 1766  in Luebeck (Mai&Marquardt#202 and KS130).  They may have settled in Schaffhausen which has so far no printed FSL.  However the household head in Mai1798, Bettinger household #17,  is the widowed Gille{Nikolaus} age 68, from Schaffhausen.

Albersbach, [Kurpfalz?]:  said by the Stephan FSL to be homeUC to a Guenter{Bartholomaeus} family.  There were at least 4 Alersbachs in the German-speaking lands.  Kuhlberg said this was in Darmstadt, but I could not find one in lands that were then Hessen-Darmstadt Landgraviate.  My guess is that the most likely one is 25 km NE of Mannheim city centre and was then in Kurpfalz.

Albert{Elisabeth nee Berg}: in 1798 she was in Kind, the widow of some unknown Albert man; they should have been in some FSL but have not be found; the 1798 entry mentions no earlier colony (Mai1798:Kd18), so they may well have been among the Kind first settlers.

Albert{J.Georg}FN: said by the Walter FSL (wt30) to be fromUC Golzhiem, Hessen-Nassau County.  The Buedingen ML says this man married in 1766 a Seilser woman; KS:118, naming no source, said he was fromUC Wertheim near Hoehfeld, Hessen (Mai&Marquardt#408).

Albert{M.Elisabeth}: this young girl was in the 1798 Zug census (Zg38) with her Louis husband; no hint was given as to from whence either one came; so she could be the last surviving member of a Zug first settler family.

Albert{Margarete}FN: married a Poehlen man in 1766 in Buedingen and was said to have been fromUC Wertheim [County] (Mai&Marquardt#533 and KS:118 & 148.  I did not find them in Mai1798..

Albert{Johannes/Peter}:  Bill Pickelhaupt, using LDS film 1195091, proved that he in 27 May 1766 married a Pickelhaupt widow (nee Burger){E.Catharina} in Gronau, [Kurmainz now Hessen].  On 12 Sept. 1766 he, with wife {Elisabeth}and her two children arrived in Russia, he said to be fromUC Erbach [County] (Kulberg5477).  In August 1767 he is listed in Recruiter Beauregard’s list of settlers in temporary quarters as Albert{Johannes} age 23 said to have come fromUC Kron?  while his wife’s two Pickelhaupt children are mistakenly listed as Burger step-kids in that household (Lk112 & 112a).  In Mai1798:Kd18 his wife is listed as a widow.

This may be the Lutheran Ahlbrecht{J.Adam} and wife who were in Kolonie J8 “Friderichshaab”, Amt Coldinghuus, Danemark in 1761 and who left there in 1763; for more detail see EEE:333.

Albrecht{A.Barbara}: born 1741 in Heiligkreutz in the Odenwald, she married  EngelhardtFN{Christian} in Fredericia, Denmark (now Schleswig-Holstein). She is listed in Anton FSL (#11).  For 1798 see (Mai1798:An56 and 62).

Alsheim[sic?], Nassau-Usingen [Principality][sic?]: Either the locality or the country or both, said by the Straub FSL to be homeUC to a Krotz family were incorrect.  As best I can tell there was no Aheim of any stripe in Nassau-Usingen and there is an Alsheim 15 km E of Alzey city, then in Kurpfalz.

Alt SimmernGL, Baden: said by the Koehler FSL to be homeUC to a Siebert family, and possibly to an Eberle family.  One would expect this place to be associated with Simmern, the seat of the Pfalz-Simmern Principality.  But I have found no such references regarding it, nor have I found it on any map or in Meyers.   I have found a reference saying it was a village in the Pfalz area which of course Simmern also was.  A bit W of Simmern city was Sponheim County which was then a part of Baden … perhaps it was in Sponheim?

AltstadtGL: said by the Buedingen ML to be homeUC to an Ickes woman who in 1766 married a Niedenthal man; by 1767 this couple was in Kutter; Stumpp says this was Altenstadt near Buedingen (Mai&Marquardt#629).  Of course this might have been the old city within Buedingen itself.

AlzeyGL: an unidentified place said by the Ober-Monjou FSL to be homeUC to a Geist family.  Kuhlberg said this was in Wuerzburg [Bishopric].  I can only find one Alzey in Germany and it was never in Wuerzburg lands.  Surely this is the same place as the next entries.

AlzeyGL: said by the Katharinenstadt FSL to be homeUC to Gaertner, Helwig? and possibly Elscheid families.  This surely is the same place as the next entry.

AlzeyGL, Mainz: Said by the Goebel FSL to be the homeUC to Franz and possibly Schreiber families.  Surely Mainz is a mistake and this is the same as the previous entry.
