Johann Peter Roth, a farmer, his wife Martha Elisabeth, and children (Johannes Paul, age 20; Johann Heinrich, age 18; Johannes, age 16; Johannes [again], age 14; Elisabeth, age 10½) are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou. They settled in the Volga German colony of Paulskaya.
In 1786, Paul Roth and his family moved from Paulskaya to Susannental.
The 1767 census records that Johann Peter Roth came from the German village of Vadenrod in the Darmstadt region.
