Konrad Heim, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 18 June 1766 aboard the ship Die Perle under the command of Skipper Thomson.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kolb on 13 May 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 13.

In 1790, Johann Heinrich Heim moved from Kolb to Hussenbach.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Heim came from the German village of Alsbach in the Hessen-Darmstadt region.
