Johann Heinrich Walther, son of Johann Caspar Walther, and Maria Juliana Rödiger, daughter of Johann Peter Rödiger, married in Eisenhammer on 31 August 1744. The Hellstein parish records report the baptisms of eight children: Johanna Elisabeth, baptized 15 November 1744; Johann Heinrich Peter, baptized 24 January 1747; Anna Gertraud, baptized 26 December 1750 (died 2 March 1751); Maria Christina, baptized 23 January 1752 (died 13 December 1756), Adam Philipp, baptized 27 April 1755; Anna Margaretha, born 21 June, baptized 25 June 1758; Charlotte, born 18 October, baptized 25 October 1761; and Johann Georg Hartmann, born 22 January, baptized 29 January 1764.
Both couples and their children arrived in Russia on 29 August 1766. The Johann Georg Hartmann family is reported on the Göbel First Settler's List in Family #3. Johann Heinrich Walther's wife Juliana and his daughter Charlotte died during the journey to the villages. Johann Heinrich, his new wife Appolonia, and his surviving children are reported on the Göbel First Settler's List in Family #8.
It should be noted that both families are described as Catholic in the Facius Lists, the Kulberg Lists, and the First Settler's Lists. However, their marriages and the baptisms of their children are recorded in the Protestant records of Hellstein.
Johann Georg Hartman and Johann Heinrich Walther's sister, Anna Catharina, married Johann Heinrich Fuchs (settler in Norka). Anna Gertraud Fuchs is the sister of Johann Heinrich Fuchs and Daniel Fuchs (settler in Müller).
