Discussion & Documentation: 

Anna Justus, widow of Philipp Justus, and her son Wilhelm arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.

Wilhelm settled in the Volga German colony of Huck on 1 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 35 along with the Wolf Heinrich Febor family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Justus and Febor families. A note on the 1767 census records that Wilhelm Justus moved to the neighboring colony of Beideck in 1768.

Wilhelm Justus and his family are recorded on the 1775 census of Beideck in Household No. 18.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Anna Justus came from the German region of Isenburg.
