Discussion & Documentation: 

Widower Konrad Müller, a farmer, and his daughters (Katharina, age 20; Margaretha, age 16; Maria, age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

He remarried and settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm where the combined families are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 43.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Konrad Müller was a farmer while the 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker).

Konrad and his family are recorded on the 1775 census of Grimm in Household No. 14.

Both documents record that Konrad Müller came from the German region of Darmstadt.
