Discussion & Documentation: 

Gabriel Lincke, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.

He is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou (No. 123) where he is recorded as a widower relocating to the colony of Orlovskaya in 1768.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Gabriel Lincke came from the German region of Sachsen (Saxony).

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendant lines of this Lincke family among the Volga German colonies.
