Johannes Georg Schremser, son of Johann Anton Schrem(b)ser & Anna Würz, was born in Schriesheim on 25 February 1732. His father died 29 December 1734. His mother remarried to Daniel Bossert. She died 21 January 1766.

Jürgen [later Georg] Schremser immigrated to Schleswig-Holstein (today in Denmark) where on 17 April 1760 in Altona he married Anna Christina Stay, daughter of Nicolaus & Catharina Stay of Heimersheim. The birth of daughter Anna Catharina on 27 March 1761 is recorded in the parish register of Karup, Denmark.

The Schremser family is last recorded in the Danish colonies on 26 April 1763. They joined the migration to Russia.

Georg Schremser, a farmer, and his family settled in the Volga German colony of Moor on 1 July 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 14.

The 1834 Census of Moor records that Johann Philipp Schremser relocated to the colony of Kukkus, but he actually moved to the colony of Warenburg.

The 1874 family list of Warenburg records that the Schremser family relocated to the daughter colony of Neu-Galka on 31 March 1875.

Both the records of Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) and the 1767 census record that Georg Schremser came from the German region of Kurpfalz.
