Andreas Heinz, a baker, his wife Anna, and children (Friedrich; Judith, age 17; Eberhard, age 16; Johannes, age 9; Regina, age 8; Barbara, age 7; Anna, age 3) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Fyodor Fyodorov.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 29 July 1767 where the children are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 54.
In 1788, Friedrich Heinz and his family moved from Kutter to Straub. Eberhard Heinz from Kutter is recorded on the 1798 census of Anton in Household No. An03.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that this Heinz family came from the German region of Württemberg.
