Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Neubert families affiliated with the colony of Paulskaya. Their relationship to each other, if any, needs further research.

(1) Martin Neubarth, a cobbler, and his wife Katharina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax

Mart. Neubarth and his wife Katharina are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Martin Neubert, a single farmer, is recorded on the 1767 census of Paulskaya in Household No. 87. He had settled there on 7 June 1767.

In 1786, Martin Neubert and his family moved from Paulskaya to the Caucasus.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Martin Neubarth came from the German region of Mainz. The 1767 census records that Martin Neubert came from the German village of Grasemeichen [?] in the Mainz region.

(2) Friedrich Neubert is recorded on the 1798 census of Paulskaya in Household No. Pl64 along with a note that he is apprenticing to a cobbler in the colony of Enders.

There are no known surviving male lines of either of these Neubert families among the Volga German colonies.
