Anna Margaretha Riklen [perhaps Rikl] (age 3) is recorded on the 1767 census of Yagodnaya Polyana in Household No. 72 along with her stepfather Johann Heinrich Götz.

They had arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766.

They are recorded on a listing of colonists from the German village of Eichelsdorf.

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