Historically, Ettenheim was located in the Bishopric of Strassburg. Today it is located in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, about 50 kilometers south of Strasbourg, France.
Magdalena Elisabeth Schmick, daughter of Georg Philipp Schmick & Anna Elisabeth Lehning was born about 1750, probably in Büdingen.

Peter Will from Höchst in the area of Wetterau and widow Gertude Ross [should be Gross] from Schwickertshausen married on 3 May 1766 in Büdingen.
[Johann] Peter Will, his wife Gertrude, [her] children (Johann, age 16; Georg, age 15; Ludwig, age 11; Johann, age 6 [all surname Gross]), and his wife's sister Anna, age 48 [surname not recorded] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Skott.
There are two Schwab families that arrived together from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov. They both settled in the Volga German colony of Kraft on 18 August 1767. Their relationship to each other is not recorded, but they are assumed to be father/son.
Gertrude Imhof, sister of Anna Christine Imhof who had been born 2 December 1719 in Partenstein, arrived from Lübeck along with her sister and brother-in-law Michael Steigerwald at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Skott.
She settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 40.
Since her sister was born in Partenstein, Gertrude is assumed to have been born there as well, although this needs to be confirmed.
