Johann Georg Brahm, a cobbler (Schuhmacher), his wife Maria, and son Heinrich (age 8) are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou (No. 13). He is recorded on the 1798 census of Wittmann in Household No. Wm28 along with a note that he is working in Katharinenstadt.

The 1767 census records that Johann Georg Brahm came from the German village of Asfeld.
