Johann Georg Schmidt, the stepson of Johann Georg Bütner, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pinkom.

Georg Schmidt (and the Bütner family) are recorded on a list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 3 August 1767 along with his mother and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 58 along with his mother and stepfather, Johann Georg Bütner.

In 1774, Johann Georg Schmidt and his wife moved from Boisroux to Katharinenstadt.
