There are 3 Reinicke families affiliated with the Volga German colony of Frank. Their relationship to each other, if any, needs further research.

(1) Anna Maria Reinick [sic], daughter of Johannes Reinick & Margaretha Guttmann, was born 23 November 1739 in Gersfeld. She married there on 14 June 1766 to Andreas Reiter who was also from Gersfeld.

(2) Joachim Reineke & Elisabeth Ratkens were married 31 July 1766 in a house in Lübeck.

Joachim Reinicke and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Frank in Household No. Fk021.

The death of Joachim Reineke in 1817 is recorded on the 1834 census of Frank in Household No. 75.

There are no known surviving male lines of Joachim Reineke among the Volga German colonies.

(3) Friedrich Reinicke and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Frank in Household No. Fk008.
