Comments: Philipp Krauss' occupation is given as Ortsdiener, literally local servant. I translated it as "beadle", not sure if this a good match. An Ortsdiener ran errands for the community administration and was responsible for announcements. Furthermore, he had to perform municipal police services as a lower level policeman. Vögisheim ( https://www.meyersgaz.org/place/21035143 ) is a village about 200 km (125 mi) south of Graben.
