Heinrich Markroth, a farmer, and his wife Katharina are recorded on the 1767 census of Urbach in Household No. 39. They had settled there on 3 July 1767.

The 1767 census records that Heinrich Markroth came from the German village of Wegeleben in the Brandenburg region and that his wife Katharina came from the German village of Hochhausen in the Darmstadt region.

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