Peter Dörr, a farmer, settled in the Volga German colony of Schuck on 18 July 1766. Peter, his wife Elisabeth, and daughter Anna Maria (age ½) are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 26.

In 1790, widow Katharina Dörr and her children moved from Schuck to Kutter.

Daughter Anna Maria Dörr is believed to be recorded on the 1798 census of Kamenka in Household No. Km036. Additional daughters (Elisabeth, Katharina, & Barbara) may be recorded on the 1798 census of Hildmann in Household No. Hd31.

The 1767 census records that Peter Dörr came from the German village of Mannheim in the Kurpfalz region.
