Heinrich Jäger, a weaver, and his wife Maria arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Gottfried Seelender.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Kratzke.
In 1792, widow Maria Gertrude Jäger and her son moved from Kratzke to Frank.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Heinrich Jäger came from the German region of Nassau.
