Johann Adam Resner, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Die Neue Freiheit von Bremen under the command of Skipper Steingrawer.
The parents and several children died after arrival in Russia. The surviving children settled in the Volga German colony of Hildmann on 20 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 45.
The 1767 census records that the Resner family came from the German village of Gelnhausen.
