Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Jung, a single farmer, and his brother Christoph (age 20) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Georg Jung and his brother Christoph are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Christoph Jung, a farmer, and his wife Katharina are recorded on the list of Beauregard recruits that accompanied the 1767 census of the Volga German colonies in Household No. 96.

It is not known in which colony they ultimately settled.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Jung came from the German region of Droeswein. The 1767 census records that Christoph Jung came from the German village of Dortelweil.

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