Andreas Kornemann, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Justina, age 10; Christian, age 2) 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.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kaneau on 7 June 1767. Andreas is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 38 as a widower.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Andreas Kornemann came from the German region of Zerbst.
