Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann [Friedrich] Eurich and his wife Anna [Barbara] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 19 July 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Jakob Bauer.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Schwab on 12 September 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 33 along with widow Anna Katharina Will (age 55). The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Eurich and Will families.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Eurich was a farmer from the German region of Gelnhausen. The 1767 census records that he was a weaver (Weber) from the German village of Raibach.
