Johann Reindorf, a farmer, and his wife Margaretha arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 19 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Hermann Anderson.
Johannes Reindorff [sic], his wife Margretha, and son Hans Michell (age ¼) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that Hans Michell died en route.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Semenovka on 24 July 1767 where widow Margaretha is recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 24.
In 1774, Joseph Reindorf and his family moved from Schönchen to St. Petersburg.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Reindorf came from the German region of Würzburg. The 1767 census records that Margaretha Reindorf came from the German region of Kurmainz.
There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of Johann Reindorf among the Volga German colonies.
