Stephan Junker, a farmer, and his wife Christina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Skott.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767. Stephan is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 52 along with his new wife Susanna.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Stephan Junker came from the German region of Darmstadt.
