Friedrich Kirchenhein and his family immigrated to Russia. It appears that his daughter Maria Katharina (age 9) is the only family member to settle in the Volga German colony of Norka on 2 September 1767. She is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 201 with the Johannes Hohnstein family.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this family.
