Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Wendel (age 16¼) and his sister Anna (age 10¼) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 31 July 1766 aboard a Russian packet-boat under the command of Lieutenant Pyotr Malinkov along with their mother and stepfather, Konrad Rösser.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Sewald on 20 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 7.

The 1767 census does not record from where the Wendel family came.

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