Georg Winkler, a farmer, his wife Maria, and daughter Katharina (age ¼) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of Skipper Paul Adam Drath.
Georg Winkler must have died in St. Petersburg. Widow Katharina Winkler and daughter Katharina (age 2½) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767, but both of them died en route.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Georg Winkler came from the German region of Augsburg.
There are no known surviving male lines of this Winkler family among the Volga German colonies.
