[Johann] Kaspar Schütz, a farmer, his wife Elisabeth, and children (Katharina, age 14; Elisabeth, age 11; Maria, age 8; Johann, age 5½) arrived from Reval [Estonia] at the port of Oranienbaum aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Warenburg on 12 May 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 122.

The death of Kaspar Schütz in 1805 is recorded on the 1811 census of Warenburg in Household No. 36 along with his son Johann Heinrich and grandsons (Johann Peter, age 19; Georg Philipp, age 11; Johann Christoph, age 9).

[Johann] Christoph Schütz, son of Johann Heinrich Schütz, from Warenburg and his family are recorded on the 1834 census of Straub in Household No. 42.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Kaspar Schütz came from the German region of Hannover. The 1767 census records that Johann Kaspar Schütz came from the German village of Nieder-Erlenbach in the Hanau region. Ron Brott reports that this family came from the village of Nieder-Eschbach.
