An article by Hermann Wäschke records the following:

Andreas Gehre, a soldier (Soldat) from the Anhalt-Bernburg Regiment, with his wife and son, from Quellendorf. His house went to his father, Heinrich Gehre, of Quellendorf.

Andreas Gehre, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Andreas Goere, his wife Anna, and son Peter (born and died en route) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Andreas Geher, a tailor (Schneider), and his wife Anna settled in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 7 June 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 34.

In 1787, Andreas Geher moved from Boisroux to Herzog. He is recorded there on the 1798 census in Household No. Hr23.

There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
