Katharina Barbara Altersroh and her unnamed husband settled in the Volga German colony of Brabander on 11 August 1767. Her husband died 20 October 1767. Widow Altersroh is recorded on the 1767 census of Brabander in Household No. 111.

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