Anna [Margaretha] Schmidt, widow of Peter Schmidt, and their daughters (Anna [Maria], age 11; Maria [Elisabeth], age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.

Margaretha remarried Andreas Stellmann, and they settled in the Volga German colony of Huck on 1 July 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 26.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Anna Schmidt came from the German region of Isenburg.

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