Anna Maria Klitsch and her unnamed husband, a farmer, settled in the Volga German colony of Brabander on 7 September 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 118 along with two daughters (Margaretha, age 18; Magdalena, age 12) and a note recording that their unnamed father had died on 7 September 1767.

The 1767 census records that Anna Maria Klitsch came from the German village of Langendorf in the Würzburg region.

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