Description

Johann Georg Ditschler was born in Zell and baptized 8 August 1739, son of Johannes Ditchler and his wife Anna Elisabetha. Johann Georg married Maria Elisabetha Henckel, daughter of Johann Peter Henckel from Zell, on 25 November 1762. Johann Georg and Maria Elisabetha had two children: Anna Maria (baptism not found) and Anna Elisabetha, born 4 January, baptized 6 January 1765.

The Tischler family arrived in Russia on 19 July 1766, on the same ship as a number of other families who settled in Müller. They are reported on the Müller 1767 Census (First Settlers List) in Household #14.

The 1798 Census includes a number of individuals who appear to be descendants of this family. Anna Elisabeth Tischler, age 34, is reported in Müller Household #1. The Movement Tables in the 1798 Census state that Katharina, daughter of Georg Tischler, married Georg Lautal in Stephan. This family is reported in the Stephan 1798 Census in Household #2. The Movement Tables in the 1798 Census state that Anna Elisabeth, daughter of Georg Tischler, married Konrad Moor in Stephan. This family is reported in the Stephan 1798 Census in Household #23.
