Johann[es] Mallad, a farmer, and his wife Katharina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Pfeifer on 22 August 1767. Johannes is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 99 along with his new wife Kunigunda and her children (Johann Georg, age 19; Eva, age 11) whose surname is not recorded. These children and their widowed mother however, appear on the same ship in Oranienbaum under the surname of Reser.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Malad came from the German region of Schönbronn. The 1767 census records that Johannes Mallad came from the German village of Aschaffenburg.
