Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Peter Adelmeier, a farmer, and his wife Katharina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard the Russian pink Vologda under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Bartenyev.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Frank in 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 68.

In 1788, widow Anna Margaretha Adelmaier and her children moved from Frank to Kamenka. It is believed that they are recorded on the Kamenka 1798 census in Household Km088 with a botched spelling of Oldenhar.

The 1767 census records that Johann Peter Adelmeier came from the German village of Fauerbach in the Hessen-Darmstadt region.
