Adam Krieger, a farmer, his wife [Anna] Katharina Asmus, and father-in-law Kaspar Asmus arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 100.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Adam Krieger came from the German region of Darmstadt. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Nidda in the Darmstadt region.
