Kaspar Kühn, a farmer, his wife Anna, and son Konrad (age 18) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 31 July 1766 aboard a Russian ship under the command of Lieutenant Ilyin.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Müller on 16 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 23.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Kaspar Kühn came from the German region of Hanau. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Echzell.
