Hans Georg Laub [Lapp?], a farmer, and his family settled in the Volga German colony of Reinwald on 14 July 1766. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 10.
The 1767 census records that Hans Georg Laub came from the German village of Heilbronn in the Württemberg region.
The Eichhorns record that this Hans Georg Laub may have immigrated first to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein), arriving in Flensburg on 12 June 1762.
