Johannes Bartel and his family settled in the Volga German colony of Norka on 15 August 1767.
Johannes died and his widow Magdalena remarried to Johannes Milling. They and Magdalena's surviving son, Johannes Bartel (age 6), are recorded in Norka on the 1767 census in Household No. 118.
There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this Bartel family.
