There are two Flemming families recorded on the 1775 census of Beideck. Their relationship to each other is not recorded.

(1) Friedrich Flemming, a farmer, his wife Charlotta, and children (Gottfried, age 13; Anna, age 10; Louisa, age 7; Christian, age 6; Charlotta, age 3) arrived from Danzig at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 May 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Jakob Janson.

Friedrich Flemming and his family are recorded on the 1775 census of Beideck in Household No. 6. In 1788, Friedrich Flemming and his family moved from Beideck to Stahl am Tarlyk. In 1790, Friedrich Flemming moved from Stahl am Tarlyk to Jost.
