Karl Stumpp's Book Immigration from Germany to Russia 1825 Revisionsliste (Census) of colony of Johannestal on page 714.

Information from Church Documents of Dornstetten, Germany. Death Date: LDS Microfilm #1884074 pg 433 It 16 - 78 years 28 days Death record indicates he was still married at the time of his death. Information from Gordon M. Auch Johannes Sailer was a Citizen and Butcher of Dornstetten Germany and Becherwirth. Beckerwirth is perhaps a "owner of a tavern". A tavern owner was often a butcher as well. The owner would butcher his hogs and sell the meat in his tavern -- which was more of a restaurant. Usually the tavern owner was one of the most important people in town, because much of the town's official and unofficial business was taken care of at the tavern. Stumpp's book lists 4 children born to Johannes Sailer but the Dornstetten documents lists 6 children, five boys and one girl. Apparently three of these children perished from yellow fever, the plague or other disease. Perhaps on the journey from Germany to Russia.

Notes for Anna Barbara Truck:

Information on the death of Anna Barbara (Truck) Sailer was found in the St. Petersburg, Russia records for the Rohrbach Parish on LDS Microfilm # 1884120/1, Pg 733, Reg 9. She was 87 yrs 1 mo and 22 dys at the time of her death. It is stated she was a widow born in Dornstetten
