Ernst Müller and his wife Anna Maria arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard the pink Vologda under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Bartenyev.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Balzer on 18 June 1767 in Household No. 64.
In 1796, Johann Heinrich Müller moved from Balzer to Krasnoyar.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Ernst Müller was a blacksmith while the 1767 census records that he was a farmer.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Ernst Müller came from the German region of Isenburg.
