Anton Bortdorf, a single farmer (age 18), is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou in Household No. 80 along with a note that he settled in the colony of Biberstein in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Anton Bortdorf came from the German region of Berlin.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Bortdorf family among the Volga German colonies.
