Discussion & Documentation: 

Johannes Korger, a farmer, and his wife Agness arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Heinrich Sager.

Their orphaned daughter, Anna Margaretha, is recorded on the 1767 census of the Volga German colony of Rohleder in Household No. 50 living with Johannes Pommer and his wife, Maria Theresia.

The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Pommer and the Korger families although they did arrive in Oranienbaum on the same ship.

The 1767 census records that Anna Margaretha Korger came from the German region of Bamberg.
