Peter Pischki [sic], a weaver (Weber), his wife Katharina, and son Karl Friedrich (age 11), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 3 June 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of Skipper Paul Adolph Drath.

Pierre Pusque, his wife Elisab. Cath. Margr., and son Carl Friederich (age 12) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Brabander on 5 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 65.

The 1767 census records that Peter Pischki came from the French village of Carcassonne near Languedoc.
