Nikolaus Meinrath, his wife Maria, and sons (Mathias, age 15; Johann, age 10) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Hans Karholm.
In 1793, Jakob Meinrad moved from Wittmann to Ober-Monjou.
In 1822, Christian Meinrath was exiled from Ober-Monjou.
