RockFN: see Rakk.

RockbaergerFN: see Buchsberger.

RockbargerFN: see Buchsberger.

RodenbachGL, Kurmainz: said by the Goebel FSL to be homeUC to a Kortz family.  This may have been  on the Main river 31 km ESE of Aschaffenburg city.  This surely was not the next entry.

RohlederVV: aka Raskatka, Raskaty, Roskaty, and Rolleder, was a German Catholic village on the eastern side of the Volga founded in 1766. Betty Hoffman shared with us the FSL that was published by Anthony J. Leiker (Pavel M. Leus, trans.) in 2002; several geographical identifications added by the editor and others in this edition are iffy since it was not then known that many place names in the FSL were countries, not localities.  According to this, the first settlers were from the following places with the family names shown here in parens. If a family name occurs more than once among the first settlers, given names in {} brackets follow the family name.  The number after a name is its FSL household number:

RohrbachGL, Isenburg[-Buedingen County]: 3 miles NW of Buedingen, and was said by KS:131 and by the Stumpp version of the Balzer FSL to be home of Grasmick/Grasmueck families.  Rohrbach parish records say two Grasmuck families left their home in Rohrbach for Russia in 1766 (Mai&Marquart#1254, #1256); they also say Popp with his wife and children left here in 1766 (#1255) – the widow and children were in the Balzer FSL.  Bonner proved this origin both for the Grasmck husband and for his May wife.  Bonner also proved this home to the Bopp woman who married one of the Messinger men who settled in Balzer, and of the Weber step-daughter of one of the Grasmueck men.  Said by the Buedingen ML to be home to the Bopp man who in 1766 married a Stickel woman; by 1767 this couple was in Norka: Stumpp said this was near Buedingen (Mai&Marquardt#712).  KS124 gives this as home to Claus{J.Heinrich} who I could not find in any published FSL or in Mai1798.
