Gra?FN: said by the Boregard FSL to be fromUC Arsalen?.  I could not find this family in the 1798 Volga censuses.

And this was the birthplace of  Zwecker{M.Margaretha} the widow of Gruenemeier{J.Matthias} and who remarried to Gammerstrath{Joseph} probably in Beideck.

GrabenGL, Karlsruhe [Amt], Baden: is some 2 km S of Neudorf and 18 km NNE of Karsruhe city, and has been proven by the GCRA, using FHL(1,238,310), to be the place where a son was born to the Braun who went to Bergdorf ; see their book for more details.  This is the same place as the previous entry, except 40 years later.

Graben, Staffort Unteramt, Karlsruhe Oberamt, Baden-Durlach Margraviate: EEE p.642 said Wentz{Peter} left hereUC for the German colonies in Denmark.  EEE p.653 said Ziegler{J.Georg} may have left  hereUC for the German colonies in Denmark.  This is the same place as the preceding two entries.

Graeb{Simon}: he apparently was in Zug in 1774 when his daughter left there to marry in Basel; they appear in no FSL and may have been Zug first settlers.

GraefenrodaGL, [Sondershausen-Ruolstadt County?]: is 18 miles SW of Erfurt city, and was said by the Ober-Monjou FSL to be homeUC to a Kohl family.  The Pleve book suggested this might be Grafenreuth, but that seems extremely doubtful.

The number with the name is their household number in the FSL.  Dona Reeves-Marquardt tells me that at least two families "first settled" in Grimm but did so after the FSL was put together; I have added the two that I have been told about in red in the immediately following sequence.  For other families that arrived in Grimm before 1775 but which I cannot yet place in any other FSL, see the next Grimm entry.
