Barbara Rosina Traut was born in Herbstein, between Giessen and Fulda, on 16 September 1739.
She immigrated to Russia, arriving from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of skipper Christian Korsholm.
Barbara Rosina Traut is recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.
She evidently made it to the Volga German colonies, but it is not known in which colony she settled at this time.
