Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Hubert families that arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Novaya Dvinka under the command of Lieutenant Perepechin.

They both settled in the Volga German colony of Köhler on 21 August 1767.

(1) Sebastien Hubert married Anna Maria Friedwald from Osthofen on 8 January 1743 in Soden. A note in the marriage record indicates that Anna Maria was Lutheran and converted to Catholocism before the marriage. They lived in Eckardroth. The Salmünster parish register records the following children, each born in Eckardroth: (1) Maria Eva, born 3 March 1748, died 19 March 1748; (2) Juliana, born 20 February 1753; (3) Johann Anselm, born 18 November 1755; and (4) Maria Ursula, born 28 August 1758.

Sebastian Huber(t), a farmer, his wife Anna Maria, and children (Johann, age 9; Ursula, age 7) arrived in Oranienbaum.

Sebastian Huber [sic], his wife Anna Maria, and children (Johannes, age 12; Ursula, age 9) are recorded on the 1767 census of Köhler in Household No. 53.

(2) Johann(es) Huber(t), a farmer, and his wife Katharina arrived in Oranienbaum.

Johannes Huber [sic] and his wife Katharina Wahl are recorded on the 1767 census of Köhler in Household No. 54.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that both Sebastian and Johann Hubert came from Austria. The 1767 census records that they same from the German village of Salmünster.
