Discussion & Documentation: 

Andreas Roth, a farmer, and his wife Anna Barbara arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.

Andreas died after arrival in Russia, and his widow settled in the Volga German colony of Stahl am Karaman on 22 June 1767 where she is recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 41.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that the Roths came from the German region of Dienheim.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this Roth family.
