BlumenscheinFN{Adam}:  KS122 and the Jagodnaja Polyana FSL #47 say he, age 22, was fromUC [Reichelsheim], Erbach [County].  For 1798 see Mai1798:40, 68 and 80.

BlumenscheinFN{A.Maria}:  the Jagodnaja Polyana FSL #46a says she, age 24,  was fromUC [Reichelsheim], Erbach [County]. and was sister-in-law to Zuergiebel{Christoph} [and hence sister to Blumenschein{Margaretha E.} and {Adam}—ed.].

BlumenscheinFN{Margaretha E.}: according to the Buedingen ML she was fromUC Reichelsee [Reichelsheim, Erbach County] and married on 19 June 1766 Zirckoebel{Christoph} fromUC Breuschbach; after which the couple went to Jagodnaja Polyana FSL #46; KS122 says she was fromUC Reichelsheim near Friedberg in Hessen [but in the 1760s it was Erbach County, not in any Hessen—ed.] (Mai&Marquardt#704).

BlumenscheinFN{Margaretha E.}: fromUC Reichelsee [i.e. Reichelsheim – ed], Erbach [County] married Reh{Benedict} on 17 May 1766 in Buedingen (Mai&Marquardt#655 & KS149).  Not found in Kulberg, or T, or in any published FSL. She surely was a sister or cousin, senior to the preceeding entry.  Either 1) this couple did not go to Russia, or 2) they both died before arriving in Russia, or 3) this marriage did not ‘take’ and she was free to marry Zirckoebel as detailed in the preceeding entry.  I have found no Russian record mentioning any Herr Reh.

BobenhausenGL: there are two Bobenhausen now in Hesse very near each other.  Also in the 18th century sometimes spelled, or misspelled, Bubenhausen and Poppenhausen. They are now known as Bobenhausen Einz and Bobenhausen Zwei to distinguish which is which.  For hundreds of years they were in different countries, but apparently nonetheless they were confused with each other.  The Buedingen ML said Bobenhausen was homeUC to the Steinbach woman who in 1766 married a Gambach man; by1767 they were in Moor (Mai&Marquardt#502).  KS:129 said this Bobenhausen was near Gruenberg [that would have been Bobenhausen Zwei], however KS:159 said of the same reference, it was near Buedingen [that would have been Bobenhausen Einz]!  Said by the Schwab FSL to be homeUC to the Arndt{Johannes} and {J.Heinrich} families.

BobenhausenGL, Buedingen: this would seem to refer to what is now Bobenhausen Eins which was then in Stolberg-Gedern County, but very near Buedingen city.  Said by the Pleve version of the Jagodnaja Poljana FSL to be homeUC to Schneidmueller, Stuckart and possibly Kokon/Kuchin and Merkel families.  However, the Buedingen ML said that Schneidmueller was fromUC the Bobenhausen in Ulrichstein Amt (Mai&Marquardt#727), which is now Bobenhausen Zwei.

Bock/Bach?{J.Conrad}: married Weigand{M.Elisabet} both fromUC Waldeck [Principality] in Luebeck 29 July 1766 (Mai&Marquardt#274).  They may have arrived in Russia on 15 Sept. 1766 (Kulberg7053)?  And they may have taken transport to the Volga later in 1766, during which trip she died (T1991-1192).  By Aug 1767 he, with a 2nd wife {Susanna} had taken temporary quarters, he being said to have come fromUC Freienhagen, [Waldeck Principality] (Lk20).  They may then have settled in Zuerich for which the FSL has not survived.  At any rate, in 1798 he and a third wife, Fei{A.Margaretha}, seem to be settled there as a Bach family (Mai1798: Zr2).
