The baptisms of two children to Johann Conrad & Anna Maria Reuter have been located in the parish registers of Meerholz & Hailer: (1) Anna Dorothea, baptized 22 November 1762 in Meerholz; and (2) Johannes, baptized 19 September 1764 in Hailer.

Konrad Reuter, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Anna, age 22; Katharina, age 17; Charlotta, age 13; Anna, age 11; Philipp, age 7; Johann, age 2) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard a Russian packet-boat under the command of Midshipman Mankensey. 

Johann Konrad Reuter, his wife Anna Maria, and daughters (Charlotta, age 14; Anna Maria, age 12) are recorded on the 1767 census of Moor in Household No. 34. They had settled there on 18 June 1767.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Reuter came from the German district of Isenburg.

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