Heinrich Reichmann, his wife Sophia, and children (Anna, age 9½; Johann, age 6) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Franz Nicolaus Schröder.

Surviving daughter Anna is recorded as an orphan on the 1767 census on a list of Beauregard recruits (No. 1) living with the Johann Paul Eckhardt family along with a note that they settled in the Volga German colony of Zürich in 1768. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Reichmann and the Eckhardt families.

Neither the Oranienbaum passenger list nor the 1767 census record from where this Heinrich Reichmann came.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this Reichmann family among the Volga German colonies.
