Discussion & Documentation: 

Franz Müller, a tailor, and his wife Susanna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

According to Rauschenbach, this is the same couple as the Christ. Leopoldt Müller and his wife Catharina who are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Leopold Müller, a tailor (Schneider), his wife Katharina, and son Johann Lorenz (age 2-months) are recorded on the 1767 census of Orlovskaya in Household No. 27. They had settled there on 7 June 1767.

In 1768, Leopold Müller and his wife were exiled from Orlovskaya.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Müller came from the German region of Isenburg. The 1767 census records that Leopold Müller came from the German village of Ing [?].

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