Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Peter Pauly, a farmer, his wife Anna Elisabeth, and their children (Georg Christian, age 10; Anna Katharina, age 8; Johann Wilhelm, age 2½; Anna Maria, age ½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm.

They have not been located on the 1767 census of the Volga German colonies.  The 1775 census of Norka records Johann Peter Pauli and his family in Household No. 166. The 1798 census records Johann Peter Paulÿ and his family in Household No. Nr174.

Research by Karl Becker reveals that Katharina Pauly, daughter of Peter Pauly, received authorization to leave Norka on 14 February 1790. The movement table that accompanies the 1798 census of Norka records that Katharina Pauly, daughter of Peter Pauly, moved to Sarepta in 1794.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Peter Pauly came from the German region of Isenburg.
