An article by Hermann Wäschke records the following going to Russia:

(unnamed) Kauerhof, a broom maker (Bürstenbinder) and tenant (Mietsmann), with wife and 2 children, from the city of Dessau, having moved to Dessau from Halle four years ago.

Karl Martin Kauerhof, a broom maker (Bürstenbinder), his wife Anna Rosina, and children (Andreas, age 21; Maria, age 17) 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.

Carl Mart. Kauerhof, his wife Rosina, and children (Andr., age 21; Anna Elisabet, age 17½) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kaneau on 7 June 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 1 where Karl Martin Kauerhof is identified as the colony's mayor (Vorsteher).

The Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census records that Karl Martin Kauerhof came from the German region of Dessau.
