Johann[es] Mülleck, his wife Gertrude, and children (Falentin , age 17½; Anna, age 12; Franziscus, age 5) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 31 July 1766 aboard a Russian packet-boat under the command of Lieutenant Korsakov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Sewald on 20 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 16.

In 1788, widow Maria Eva Milek and her son moved from Sewald to Degott.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johannes Mülleck was farmer from the German region of the Pfalz. The 1767 census records that he was a mason (Maurer) from the German region of Mainz.
