Johann Georg Plattner, a farmer, his wife Maria, and son Johannes settled in the Volga German colony of Kamenka on 6 July 1765. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 3 along with newborn Maria Barbara (age ½-year).

A note on the 1767 census also records that orphans Johann Gottlieb & Sophia Kettler are living with the Plattner family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Plattner and Kettler families.

The 1767 census records that Johann Georg Plattner came from the German village of Reez [?].
