The marriage of Conrad Schneider & Anna Margaretha Triller is recorded in the parish register of the Lutheran Church in Büdingen.

Konrad Schneider, a farmer, his wife Anna, and his mother[-in-law] Anna [Triller] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.

Konrad Schneider settled in the Volga German colony of Balzer on 1 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 76 along with his wife Anna Barbara [sic] and her mother Margaretha Triller. [See Schneider Family.]

The 1767 census does not record from where Margaretha Triller came.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Triller family among the Volga German colonies.
