Adam Dehlermann, his wife, and his step-daughter arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Leitsinger on 19 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 50.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Adam Dehlermann was a furrier while the 1767 census records that he was a farmer.

At some point Adam Dehlermann relocated to the colony of Neu-Kolonie, because he is recorded in 1788 moving from Neu-Kolonie to Hölzel where he is recorded on the 1798 census in Household No. Hz10.

The 1767 census records that Adam Dehlerman came from the German village of Bessenbach in the Bamberg district.
