Beutel (Yagodnaya Polyana-1)
Two Beutel families settled in the Volga German colony of Yagodnaya Polyana on 16 September 1767. They arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the galliot Die Perle under the command of Skipper Thomson.
(1) Johann Konrad Beutel, a farmer, and his wife Elisabeth are recorded on the 1767 census of Yagodnaya Polyana in Household No. 24.
(2) Johannes Beutel, a farmer, and his wife Anna Elisabeth are recorded on the 1767 census of Yagodnaya Polyana in Household No. 25.
The 1767 census records that both Johann Konrad and Johannes came from the German region of Nidda.
Georg Kromm's research that was published in 1912 records that the Beutel family came from the German village of Wallernhausen.
