Discussion & Documentation: 

Peter Stieber, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766 aboard the galliot Der Jan under the command of Skipper Markus Dragun.

Surviving daughter Susanna (age 10) settled in the Volga German colony of Brabander on 11 August 1767. She is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 27 along with the Franz Joseph Mader family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Stieber and Mader families.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that the Stieber family came from Luxembourg.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this Stieber family among the Volga German colonies.
