Wilhelm Jung, a farmer, his wife Marianna, and children (Johann, age 19; Philippina, age 18) arrived from Reval [Estonia] at the port of Oranienbaum on 31 May 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Leitsinger on 12 May 1767 where they are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 11.
Following the destruction of Leitsinger, the Wilhelm Jung family resettled in the colony of Neu-Kolonie where they are recorded on the 1798 Census in Households No. Nk04 and Nk25.
The 1767 census records that Wilhelm Jung came from the German village of Lintenhausen in the Kurtrier region.
