Discussion & Documentation: 

Georg Winter, a farmer, his wife Katharina, and daughter Regina (age 2) are recorded on the 1767 census of Shcherbakovka in Household No. 3. They had settled there on 15 June 1765.

Georg Jakob Winter from Shcherbakovka and his family are recorded on the 1857 census of Gnadentau.

The 1767 census records that Georg Winter came from the German town of Untermbach [?].

[The Eichhorns record that a Hans Georg Winter went first to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), but that individual does not match the Georg Winter who settled in Shcherbakovka.]
