Discussion & Documentation: 

Philipp Müller, his wife Anna, and son Johann (age 13) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

It is believe that this is the same Philipp Müller, a locksmith (Schlosser), his wife Anna, and [step-]daughters (Elisabeth Margaretha, age 11; Anna Katharina, age 7) who are recorded on the 1767 census of Kaneau in Household No. 86. They had settled there on 3 August 1767.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Philipp Müller came from the German region of Darmstadt. The 1767 census records that Philipp Müller came from the German village of Marienhafen in the Darmstadt region.
