Johannes Lehrübel, a farmer, and his wife Johanna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pinkom.

Georg Lehrübel and his wife [Jo]Anna Wilhelmina are recorded on a list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Georg Leribel, a miller (Müller), and his wife Johanna settled in the Volga German colony of Ober-Monjou on 3 August 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 61 along with orphan Sophia Sack (age 14). The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Leribel and Sack families.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johannes Lehrübel came from the German region of Bamberg. The 1767 census records that Georg Leribel came from the German village of Breitengüßbach in the Bamberg region.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Lehrübel family among the Volga German colonies.
