Johann Peter Schott from Kirchbracht was married 9 April 1766 in Büdingen to Margaretha Scheller from nearby Nieder-Seemen. Kirchbracht and Nieder-Seemen are northeast of Büdingen.
Peter Schott, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard a Russian packet-boat under the command of Midshipman Mankensey.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Moor on 18 June 1767 and are recorded on the 1767 Census there in Household No. 44.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Peter Schott came from the German region of Isenburg.
