Johann Neurath, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.
Joh. Heinrich Neurath, his wife Anna Gertruta, and children (Johann Adam, age 14; Catrina, age 12; Elisabeth, age 10½) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.
Surviving daughter, Elisabeth (age 10), settled in the Volga German colony of Nieder-Monjou on 3 August 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 93 along with a note that she resettled to the colony of Biberstein in 1768.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that the Neurath family came from the German region of Isenburg.
There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
