There are three Naumann families from the German village of Sterzhausen that settled among the Volga German colonies. Their relationship to each other, if any, needs further research.
(1) Johannes Naumann, a farmer, his wife Elisabeth, and children (Orast [?], age 6; Johann, age 4; Elisabeth, age 1½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Gabriel Wild.
They are recorded on the 1767 census of Cäsarsfeld in Household No. 3. They had settled there on 3 August 1767.
(2) Johannes Nauman, a farmer, and his family are recorded on the 1767 census of Cäsarsfeld in Household No. 7. They had settled there on 3 August 1767.
They are recorded on the 1798 census of Katharinenstadt in Household No. Ka126.
(3) Konrad Naumann, a farmer, and his family are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Beauregard in Household No. 43. They may have settled in Cäsarsfeld since several other families on this appendix settled in Cäsarsfeld.
The 1767 census records that Konrad Naumann came from the German village of Sterzhausen.
