Margaretha Benedikt (age 12) is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Kaneau in Household No. 21 along with her stepfather Franz Reischenberg and a note that she settled in the colony of Zürich in 1768.
The 1767 census does not record from where Margaretha Benedikt came.
There are no known surviving male lines of this Benedikt family among the Volga German colonies.
