Discussion & Documentation: 

Peter Dotz, a craftsman (Handwerker), settled in the Volga German colony of Enders on 27 July 1765. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 24 along with his wife Stalina [?] and orphan Jakob Brotzmann (age 5), the son of Stanislaus Brotzmann.

The 1767 census records that Peter Dotz came from the Swedish city of Stockholm and that Stalina came from the French village of Lissenburg [?].

The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Dotz and the Brotzmann families. There may be a connection between this Dotz family and the one in the colony of Schwed.
