Elisabeth Margaretha Kader, daughter of Johannes Leonhard & Anna Maria Kader, was born on 1 July 1741 and baptized on 3 July 1741 in Höchst. In route to Russia, she married 28 April 1766 in Büdingen to Johann Adam Tyrolff (other spellings include Thüruff and Tyrolff). He was from Eschen.

They arrived from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum aboard the Russian galliot Citadel on 13 September 1766. Johann Adam died during the journey to the Volga colonies. She arrived in Dönhof on 18 June 1767 and is recorded there as a widow in Household No. 107. There appear to be no descendants of this couple, and her whereabouts following the 1767 Census are unknown.
