Christoph Reichert, a farmer, and his wife Anna Margaretha arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the Russian galliot Strelna under the command of Lieutenant Sornev.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 8 July 1767 where Christoph is recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 35 along with his new wife Anna Katharina.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Christoph Reichert came from the German region of Isenburg.
