Discussion & Documentation: 

An article by Hermann Wäschke records the following going to Russia:

Christian Tauer [sic], a thresher (Drescher) from Wörlitz; along with Wulff and Freywald, Tauer surely intends to move to Russia because he openly admits it and is selling his belongs. All three are negligent, lazy fellows. They have no debts.

Christian Dauer, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum along with a servant Johanna Henning on 18 June 1766 aboard the ship Mann und Frau under the command of Skipper Daniel Berg.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Jost on 16 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 54.

The widow and children of Christian Dauer are recorded on the 1798 census of Jost in Household No. Jo07.

The 1767 census records that Christian Dauer came from the German village of Ramsin [?] in the Anhalt-Dessau region.
