Johann [Heinrich] Jensen (age 16) and his sisters (Louisa, age 15; Elisabeth, age 11½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Franz Nikolaus Schröder along with their stepfather Wilhelm Müller.

Johann Heinrich Jensen (age 17) and his sisters Louisa (age 12) and Elisabeth (age 9) are recorded on an appendix to the the 1767 census of Beauregard in Household No. 28 along with their stepfather, Wilhelm Müller and a note that they settled in the colony of Hockerberg in 1768.

Neither the Oranienbaum passenger list nor the 1767 census record from where the Jensen siblings came.
