Discussion & Documentation: 

Andreas Roth was born about 1741 in the village of Eichelhain, southwest of Lauterbach. He was granted permission to leave for Russia in 1766, and arrived from L├╝beck at the port in Oraninenbaum on 8 August 1766.

He and his wife Catharina arrived in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 17 August 1767, but only intended to winter there before resettling to another colony the following spring. At that point, their whereabouts become unknown because they have not been located on the 1798 Census.
