Andreas Hospital, his wife Elisabeth, and their daughter Katharina (age 1½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Franz Nikolaus Schröder.

Andreas Hospital, his wife Elisabeth, and newborn son Johannes are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

The family settled in the Volga German colony of Zürich and Andreas is recorded there on the 1798 census in Household No. Zr30 along with a note that he is living in Katharinenstadt.

The Oranienbaum passenger list does not record from where Andreas Hospital came.
