Gottlieb Grenz

        Gottlieb Grenz and his younger brother emigrated to S. Russia from Poland.

          From the Gueldendorf Familien Buch in the Odessa Archives (obtained from ragas by a. Schurr and passed on to me):  Gottlieb was confirmed in Mohilne in 1802.   Left the church in Gueldendof (died) Mar. 28, 1844.  The children born in 1819 and 1822 were born in Rohrbach.  The next 3 in 1824, 1826, 1828 were born in Friedrichtsthal.  The next was born in 1833 in haselbad (?), and in 1836 and 1837 and 1840 were born in Gueldendorf.  He died in Gueldendorf in 1844. (1882634, p.20 item 3)

          Gottlieb and Samuel are listed as founders of the town of Gueldendorf in 1829.  It was formed from members of the villages of Stuttgart, Waterloo and Friedrichstal because they did not have sufficient water.  The move from the original villages occurred between 1830 and 1838.  It was located about 60 miles to the south of the original 3 villages. (see page 34 of GRHS Heritage Review May 1988)
