The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Georg Hartmann was a farmer while the 1767 census records that he was a miller (Müller).

The 1767 census records that Georg Hartmann came from the German village of Nietheim [?] in the region of Schwaben (Swabia).

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