There are two Bender families that settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767. They came from the same village in Germany, but their relationship to each other is not known.

(1) Konrad Bender, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Novaya Dvinka under the command of Lieutenant Perepechin.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 22. Son Johann Georg has not been located on the 1767 census, but he is recorded on the 1798 census of Krasnoyar in Household No. Ks023.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Bender came from the German village of Lich in the region of Solms.

(2) Philipp Bender, a farmer, his wife Katharina, children (Johann Heinrich, age 9; Anna Katharina, age 6; Anna Christina, age 3), and father-in-law Kaspar [surname not recorded] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 33.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Philipp Bender came from the German region of Solms. The 1767 census records that he came from the village of Lich in the Solms region.
