Adam Paulÿ, a wheelwright, his wife Anna [Dorothea], and children (Maria [Magdalena], age 17; Marianna, age 14; Johann Adam, age 13; Johann, age 7; Anton; age 3) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Der Junge Heinrich under the command of Skipper Heinrich Niemann.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Keller on 15 July 1767 where the father died on 5 October 1767. The widow and surviving children are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 71.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Adam Paulÿ came from the German region of Trier. The 1767 census records that widow Dorothea Paulÿ came from the German village of Kamberg in the Kurtrier region.
