Johann Andreas Rosemann, a locksmith (Schlosser), and his wife Ulrica arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.

Joh. Heinr. Rossemann [sic] and his wife Ulrica are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Bettinger on 3 August 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 7.

In 1781, Andreas Rosemann left the colony.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census records that Johann Andreas Rosemann came from the German region of Ansbach.

There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
