Johan Adam Thiel, a farmer from the area of Hanau, & Anna Cathar. Reiffscheider [sic] from Rosbach married on 27 May 1766 in a house in Lübeck. The marriage is recorded in the parish register of St. Jacob's Lutheran Church in Lübeck.

Johann Adam Diehl, a farmer, and his wife Anna Katharina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a pink under the command of Lieutenant Moisey Davydov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 101.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johann Adam Diehl came from the German region of Hanau.
