Nell & Gary,
a minor but necessary addendum to my message:
in the relevant time and local frame the name 'Schatuller' did no more 
indicate an inhabitant of an East Prussian Schatulldorf but was 
generalizing used for 'free colonist'. It probably appears just in 
Polish or Russian colonies which were founded by former inhabitants of 
East Prussian Schatulldörfer. So we can say something about the 
background of the specific colony and its founders.
