Discussion & Documentation: 

Documents record two Friedrich Emerichs affiliated with the colony of Biberstein. Their relationship to each other, if any, needs further research.

(1) Friedrich Emerich, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Hans Karholm.

Friderich Emmerich [sic] is recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Friedrich Emerich, a single stocking weaver (Strumpfwirker), is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou in Household No. 53 along with a note that he relocated to the Volga German colony of Biberstein in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Friedrich Emerich came from the German village of Rothein [?].

(2) Friedrich Emrich [sic], a 12-year-old orphan, is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 71 along with a note that he relocated to the colony of Biberstein in 1768.

The 1767 census records that this Friedrich Emrich came from the German region of Dresden.

There are no known surviving male lines of either of these Emerich families among the Volga German colonies.
