Discussion & Documentation: 

Johannes Neuwert, a farmer, and his family immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) in 1762. Recorded with this family are Georg Neuwert (age 40), his wife Anna Sibilla (age 40), and children: Andreas (age 15), Katharina (age 11), Georg (age 6), Eva Magdalena (age 5), and Martin (age 4).

They joined the migration to Russia in 1765 and settled in the Volga German colony of Reinwald on 14 July 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 32 along with his Böhringer [erroneously recorded as Bernager] stepchildren: Ludwig (age 19), Regina (age 17), Elisabeth (age 13), Sarah (age 5), and Johann Jakob (age 2).

The 1767 census records that Johannes Neuwert came from the German region of Schleswig-Holstein. The Eichhorn research reports that he came from the German region of Lothringen.
