She may have been the unknown Schroeder daughter who married Johannes Becker around 1782. She would have been a young mother at 16, but that was a frequent scenario during those early years in the Volga region of Russia. Her husband would have been 11 years older that she was, which is also not unheard of but probably more unusual because of her young age. The Schroeder and Becker families lived close to each other during the 1775 census, families #127 and #130, but Johannes was not listed in that specific family, although it is suspected that Jost and Johannes were brothers.

One of the Johannes Beckers in the Kulberg Reports was traveling as a single person; he was the only one who survived the trip from Oranienbaum to the Volga Colonies. He may have lived with his brother in Grimm and seven years later married one of the neighbor girls. For more information on , see Johannes Becker.
