Appel (Stahl am Karaman)
Johann Caspar Appel from Heiligenkreutz in the district of Thüngen [Thüringen?] & Catharina Eliesabeth Keil, daughter of the deceased Pfeiffer Keil from Büdingen, were married on 14 April 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Büdingen.
Kaspar Appel, a farmer, and his wife Katharina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Stahl am Karaman where they are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 48.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Kaspar Appel came from the German district of Dienheim.
