Johann Adam Rosenberg, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived at the port of Oranienbaum from Lübeck on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of skipper Franz Nicolaus Schroeder.

Adam settled in the Volga German colony of Nieder-Monjou on 3 August 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 68 along with his new wife Dorothea and her brother Leopold Ehrentraudt (age 14).

The 1767 census records that Johann Adam Rosenberg came from the German village of Niederzell.
