Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Hermann Scheuermann, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Anna, age 8, Konrad, age 1) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Skott.

The only member of the family to survive the journey to the Volga German colonies appears to be daughter Anna Elisabeth (age 8) who is recorded on the 1767 census of Norka in Household No. 166 with the family of Ludwig Batt.  No relationsip between the Scheuermann and Batt families is recorded on the 1767 census.

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