Three Boxhorn children (Friedrich, age 13; Konrad, age 8; Johann Daniel, age 5) are recorded on the 1767 census of Paulskaya. Friedrich & Johann Daniel are recorded in Household No. 26 along with the Christoph Balthasar family. Konrad is recorded in Household No. 58 along with the Karl Frank family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship among the Boxhorn, Balthasar, and Frank families.

The 1767 census does not record from where the Boxhorn family came.
