Johannes Reuter, age 20, settled in the Volga German colony of Norka on 26 August 1767. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in the household (No. 176) of Ernst Kleer. His relationship to this family is not recorded.

In 1790, Heinrich Reuter moved from Norka to Frank.

This Johann[es] Reider (sic) is believed to have arrived from Rewal at the port of Oranienbaum on 30 May 1766 aboard the pink Novaya Dvinka under the command of Lieutenant Ivan Perepechin. Several other families that settled in Frank are recorded aboard this vessel.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Reider (sic) came from the German region of Bayreuth.
