Johannes [Georg] Müller, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

He and his wife Elisabeth settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 18.

They are recorded on the 1775 census of Grimm in Household No. 102.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann[es] Müller was a carpenter from the German region of Fulda. The 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker) from the German region of Fulda.

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