Widow Margaretha Langmeier and her sons (Andreas, age 16½; Elias, 12) arrived from Lübeck at the Port of Oranienbaum aboard the Russian galliot Katharina Eleonora under the command of Skipper Peter Röder.

Margaretha remarried to Max Kleiber and the combined Kleiber / Langmeier settled in the Volga German colony of Dinkel on 12 July 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 8.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Margaretha Langmeier came from the German region of Regensburg.
