Discussion & Documentation: 

Peter Deilof evidently died after arriving in Russia. His widow, Katharina Magdalena remarried to Johann Anton Eschler, a farmer.

The combined Deilof / Eschler family settled in the Volga German colony of Kamenka on 28 April 1766 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 52.

The 1767 census does not record from where the Deilof family came.
