Kaspar Bohl, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Katharina, age 20; Konrad, age 17½; Margaretha, age 15; Daniel, age 12; Anna, age 9; Johann, age 4) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Huck on 17 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 67.

In 1794, Johann Heinrich Bohl moved from Huck to Reinwald.

The 1767 census records that Kaspar Bohl came from the German region of Kurpfalz.
