Widow Wilhelm Kipper, a hunter (Jagdmann), settled in the Volga German colony of Kratzke on 7 August 1766. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 27 along with a note that he is working as a day-laborer in Saratov.
The 1767 census records that Wilhelm Kipper came from the German region of Hessen-Darmstadt.
There are no known surviving male lines of this Kipper family among the Volga German colonies.
