Discussion & Documentation: 

Jakob Euler, a farmer, his Katharina, and children (Kunigunda, age 16; Johann Martin, age 13; Johann, age 4) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Jakob and his wife died. The surviving children (Johann Martin, age 12; Johannes, age 8) are recorded on the 1767 census of Balzer in Household No. 65 along with Philipp Schlegel and his wife Maria Margaretha. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Euler and Schlegel family.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Jakob Euler came from the German region of Isenburg.
