Discussion & Documentation: 

Andreas Roth, son of the late Joh. Jost Roth from Eichenhayn, & Anna Catharina Dechert, daughter of Joh. Georg Dechert from Engelroth, were married 18 August 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Schlitz.

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

He and his wife Catharina arrived in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 17 August 1767. They are recorded there on a supplement to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 36 with a note that they intended to relocate to another colony in 1768.

At that point, their whereabouts become unknown because they have not been located on the 1798 Census.
