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.

Nicolaus Meinrath, his wife Maria, and sons (Mathias, age 16; Johann, age 10¼) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that father Nicolaus died en route.

In 1793, Jakob Meinrad moved from Wittmann to Ober-Monjou.
