Daniel Mariental, a miller (Müller), and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Franz Nikolaus Schröder.
Daniel Marienthal, his wife Christina, and son Ludewig (age 2½) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that son Ludewig died en route.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Cäsarsfeld on 3 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 13.
The 1767 census records that Daniel Mariental came from the German village of Tauberbischofsheim.
