Johann Gottlieb Pietsch & Anna Margaretha Jungk were married on 14 July 1766 at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Lübeck.

Gottlieb Pietsch, a cobbler, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Grapp.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Dietel.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Gottlieb Pietsch came from the German region of Sachsen (Saxony). Research by Andreas Idt and Georg Rauschenbach reports that Johann Gottlob Pietsch came from the village of Halbau in Saxony.
