Andreas Glück, a farmer, his wife Margaretha, and daughter Margaretha (1-month-old) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard the galliot Anna Katharina under the command of Skipper Johann Joachim Janson.

They are believed to have settled in the Volga German colony of Ernestinendorf. The widow of an unnamed Glück from Ernestinendorf is recorded on the 1798 census of Orlovskaya in Household No. Or64.

Andreas Glück arrived in Oranienbaum along with several other families that settled in the colony of Ernestinendorf.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Andreas Glück came from the German region of Manebach.
