Stephan Dittmann [sic] & Maria Klewitz were married on 24 June 1765 in Roßlau. This is believed to be the Stephan Dillmann who is recorded in Mariental in 1767 because the two following couples on the marriage list in Roßlau settled in Mariental.
Stephan Dillmann, a craftsman (Handwerker), and his wife Anna Katharina settled in the Volga German colony of Mariental on 14 June 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 61.
Widow Maria Anna Dillmann is recorded on the 1798 census of Mariental in Household No. Mt15 along with her daughter Margaretha Dillmann Gross and her family.
The 1767 census records that Stephan Dillmann came from the German region of Würzburg.
