Orphan Georg Klinge (age 18) settled in the Volga German colony of Reinwald on 25 June 1766. He is recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 15 along with the Philipp Ruppel family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Klinge and Ruppel families.

The 1767 census records that Georg Klinge came from the German region of Württemberg.
