Johann Georg Reinhardt & Esther Daubert have five known children who were baptized in Büdingen: (1) Willhelmina, baptized 24 November 1742; (2) Heinrich Peter, baptized 26 April 1744; (3) Maria Ernestina, baptized 13 February 1746; (4) Anna Barbara, baptized 17 November 1748; and (5) Heinrich Jacob, baptized 27 June 1751.

Anna Barbara Daubert, daughter of Georg Daubert the stocking weaver (Strumpfweber) from Büdingen, & Johann Georg Fischer from Reibach in the Kurpfalz & Hesse-Darmstadt were married on 22 April 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Büdingen.

Georg Daubert, a farmer from Isenburg, his wife Ester, and children (Anna Barbara, age 18; Heinrich Jakob, age 16) arrived from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

Although daughter Anna Barbara Daubert had been married in Büdingen, she and her husband arrived in Oranienbaum on separate ships.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kraft on 18 August 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 42.

Heinrich Jacob later moved to the colony of Schwab.
