Discussion & Documentation: 

Widow Dorothea Fink and her son Johann Philipp Reichert arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Grapp.  At some point, widow Fink married widower Christian Reuter (who was on the same ship) and they settled in the Volga German colony of Kautz on 21 August 1767.  They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 22 along with Dorothea's son Philipp Reichert [although Philipp's surname is not recorded on that document].

Philipp Reichert moved to the neighboring colony of Dietel where he is recorded on the 1798 census in Household No. Dt46.
