Widow Dorothea Sansor, whose husband had been a craftsman (Handwerker), settled in the Volga German colony of Reinhard on 13 May 1767. She is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 27 along with a note that she is working as a day-laborer (Lohnarbeiter).

The 1767 census records that Dorothea Sansor came from the German town of Kiel in the Holstein region.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Sansor family among the Volga German colonies.
