Discussion & Documentation: 

Anna Katharina Usinger, widow of an unnamed farmer, and her daughter Anna Dorothea (age 5) are recorded on the 1767 census of Anton in Household No. 61 along with a note that they relocated to the colony of Lauwe in 1768. They had settled in Anton on 1 September 1767.

The 1767 census records that Anna Katharina Usinger came from the German village of Schotten in the Darmstadt region.

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