Jakob Pemsel, a farmer, his wife Anna, and daughters [some of whom must be step-daughters] (Eva, age 17; Barbara, age 15; Ida, age 11 [Eva & Barbara are believed to have the surname Kippes]) are recorded on the 1767 census of Brabander in Household No. 6. They had settled there on 13 August 1767.

The 1767 census records that Jakob Pemsel came from the German village of Ulm in the region of Schwaben (Swabia).

There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
