Johann Adam Jauck, his wife Anna Walburga, and their sons (Peter Engelhard, Johann Adam, and Johann Georg) immigrated from the Baden-Durlach region to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) in 1761.

The baptism of Anna Barbara Jauck, daughter of Adam Jauck, is recorded on the parish register of Vorbasse, Denmark, on 1 February 1763.

In 1763, they joined the migration to Russia and settled in the Volga German colony of Holstein on 26 May 1765.

They are recorded on the 1767 census of Holstein in Households No. 18 & 20, with father Johann Adam as a widower. The 1798 census of Dreispitz records Johann Adam Jauck (age 79) there in Household No. Dr06.
