Johann Georg Eichhorn, a single weaver from Suhl in Saxony, arrived from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the galliot Adler with skipper Paul Adam Drath at the helm.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Urbach on 3 July 1767 where he is recorded with his new wife Maria Margaretha on the 1767 census in Household No. 54.

Widow Maria Margaretha Eichhorn is recorded on the 1798 census of Urbach in Household No. Ur20.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Eichhorn family among the Volga German colonies.
