Bernhardt Bauman and his wife Anna arrived in Russia with two children, Johann Philip, age 15, and Eva Elisabeth, age 8. The family settled in Huck. The baptisms of four children are recorded in the Spielberg (Brachttal) parish records: Maria Elisabeth, 26 Dec 1755 (died 2 May 1756), Anna Elisabeth 3 Apr 1757 (died 26 Dec 1758), Eva Elisabeth, 4 Feb 1759, and Anna Catharina, 20 Nov 1763. It is unclear where Johann Philip was born, or where Bernhardt and Anna were married.
