Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Stork families that settled in the Volga German colony of Anton on 1 September 1767. Both had arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Reders. Their relationship to each other is not recorded on the 1767 census.

(1) Konrad Stork, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Johann, age 23; Johannes, age 16; Anna, age 8; Eva, age 3) arrived in Oranienbaum. Konrad died and Anna remarried to Johann Georg Frank. The combined Frank / Stork family is recorded on the 1767 census of Anton in Household No. 60. Oldest son Johannes is recorded on the 1767 census of Anton in Household No. 50. In 1790, Johannes Storck and his family moved from Anton to Straub.

(2) [Georg] Ludwig Stork, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived in Oranienbaum. They are recorded on the 1767 census of Anton in Household No. 57.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that both of these Stork families came from the German region of Hessen. The 1767 census records that they both came from the German region of Hanau.
