"Grimberg" appears to be a misreading of Grünberg (there's a Grünberg in Hesse and one in Baden).  Some have take "Origin" to mean the birthplace of these PRACHTs, but on a ship's manifest, origin usually means their last place of residence before departure.  These records come up individually, so you can't tell how they were grouped on the original manifest.  Elisabeth is very young to be Caspar's mother, but Johannes is not too old to be his father.
