Georg Eisemann, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the Danish galliot Nord Stern under the command of Skipper Detlev Belling.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Jost on 5 September 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in the Household No. 81.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Georg Eisemann came from the German region of Prussia while the 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Lübben in the Brandenburg region.
