Johann Martin Eitenmüller, son of Johann Jacob Eitenmüller & Margaretha Elisabetha Friderich, was born 29 May 1720 in Fränkisch-Crumbach.

Martin Eitenmüller, a farmer, his wife Maria Christina, and children (Anna Barbara, age 14; Johannes, age 11) are recorded on the 1767 census of Bauer in Household No. 1 along with a note that Martin is serving as the Vorsteher (mayor) of the colony. They had settled there on 20 July 1766.

The 1767 census records that Martin Eitenmüller came from the German village of Fränkisch-Crumbach in the Darmstadt region.
