Hermann Heidenreich, his wife Katharina, and children (Christina, age 18; Margaretha, age 13; Elisabeth, age 9; Katharina, age 2½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Reders.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Walter on 25 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 70.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Hermann Heidenreich was a farmer from the German region of Isenburg while the 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker) from the German village of Hebstahl.
