März / Mertz (Reinwald)
There are two Mertz families recorded in the Volga German colony of Reinwald. They are believed to be brothers, but further research is necessary to confirm this relationship.
(1) Peter Mertz and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Reinwald in Household No. Rw01.
(2) Philipp Mertz and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Reinwald in Household No. Rw24.
