Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Schneider settlers in the Volga German colony of Huck who may be related to each other:

(1) Johann Heinrich Schneider, a farmer from Isenburg, and his wife Anna Elisabeth settled in Huck on 1 July 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 46.

(2) Johannes Schneider, also a farmer from Isenburg, and his wife (widow Anna Barbara Michel), and her children settled in Huck on 1 July 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 47. They are also recorded there on the 1798 census in Household No. Hk09.

It is possible that these two men are recorded along with many other Huck settlers on arriving from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.
