Discussion & Documentation: 

Heinrich Jung, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.

Henrich Jung and his wife Anna Maria are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Johann Heinrich Jung, a farmer, and his wife Eva [sic] are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou in Household No. 9 along with orphan Elisabeth Miemer (age 8). This Elisabeth Miemer is believed to be Elisabeth Batt, daughter of the deceased widow Anna Batt, with whom they had arrived in Oranienbaum and with whom they had been traveling between St. Petersburg and Saratov in 1767. This Elisabeth Batt's other surviving sister is Anna Margaretha, believed to be the wife of Johannes Kessel who is recorded in the next household on the appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou.

It is not known in which colony this Jung family settled.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Heinrich Jung came from the German region of Nassau. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Saalburg in the region of Nassau.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Jung family among the Volga German colonies.
