Andreas Mohr was born in Wohnfeld on 2 June and baptized on 3 June 1730, the son of Johannes Mohr and his wife Anna Veronica Mohr. Andreas married Elisabetha Catharina Mertz on 29 October 1750. Andreas and Elisabetha Catharina had six children in Wohnfeld: Johann Simon, born 5 February, baptized 6 February 1752; Johann Heinrich, born 12 September, baptized 13 September 1754 (died 11 April 1758); Johann Caspar, born 13 August, baptized 14 August 1757; Johannes, born 27 November, baptized 28 November 1758; Catharina, born 4 July, baptized 5 July 1761; and Anna Elisabetha, born 14 May, baptized 15 May 1764 (died 15 June 1765). 

Andreas, his wife Elisabeth, and their sons Simon and Johannes arrived in Russia on 29 July 1766. 

According to the Transport Lists, Elisabeth died during the journey to the villages. On the 1767 Census (First Settlers List), Andreas' wife is Anna Barbara, age 23. According to the 1798 Census, her surname is Feuerstein. There were two Feuerstein families on the same ship as the Andreas Mohr family. Those Feuerstein families were also in the same Transport group as the Mohr family. Anna Barbara Feuerstein, age 22 in 1766, was the only member of her immediate family who survived the Transport. It appears that this is the same Anna Barbara Feuerstein who is later reported as Andreas Mohr's wife. 

Andreas, Anna Barbara, their newborn son Nicolaus, and Andreas' sons Simon and Johannes are reported on the Stephan First Settler's List in Household #8. The AHSGR German Origins Project notes that the surname of Household #8 is incorrectly called Stephan in the published translation and cites later 1798 Census records for additional evidence that Mohr (or Moor) is the correct surname for this family. 

Andreas Mohr, Anna Barbara Feuerstein, and their children are reported on the Stephan 1798 Census in Household #23. The Movement Tables in the 1798 Census state that Andreas Moor's daughter Katharina Elisabeth moved to Schwab to marry Peter Beil, and his daughter Anna Elisabeth moved to Grimm to marry Jacob Kreiss. Son Johannes moved to Müller and is reported there in the the 1798 Census in Household #31.
