Philipp Schlager, a weaver, and his family 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 along with a servant Johann Gausmann [sic] (age 17½).

Johannes Gossmann [sic] settled in the Volga German colony of Brabander on 19 August 1767. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 124.

The 1767 census records that Johannes Gossmann came from the German village of Urbach in the Kurmainz region.

There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
