Widower Johann Galpfleisch [sic], a farmer, and his children (Konrad, age 39; Johann, age 23; Rosina, age 19) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 19 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Hermann Anderson.
Johann Heinr. Kalbfleisch and his children (Johann Conrad, age 26, Johann, age 24, Rosina, age 19) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Hussenbach. Son Johannes is recorded there on the 1798 census in Household No. Hs124.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that the Kalbfleisch family came from the German region of the Pfalz.
