Samuel Rudi, his wife Johanna Welle, and children (Katharina, age 20; Johann Georg, age 16; Johann, age 14; Jakob, age 12½; Konrad, age 7) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 2 July 1772 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Hartwig.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Pobochnaya on 4 July 1773.

They are recorded on a 1773 list of Pobochnaya settlers (No. 11). Johann Heinrich Rudi is recorded on the 1798 census of Dönhof in Household No. Dh006. He is believed to be another son of Samuel Rudi.
