Ludwig Rübling, a farmer, and his wife Gertrude arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Nieder-Monjou on 7 June 1767. Ludwig is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 8 along with his new wife Anna and her son Johann [surname not recorded] (age 8).

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Ludwig Rübling came from the German region of Hessen. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Oeslau.
