Johann Schielein, a farmer, his wife Barbara, and daughter Johanna (age 1/8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766.
Johann Schillein [sic] and his wife Barbara are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Leitsinger on 15 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 51.
The 1767 census records that Johann Schielein came from the German village of Teuschnitz in the district of Bamberg.
There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
