Christian Rudolph, a single servant of Andreas Krägel, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum aboard the ship Mann und Frau under the command of Skipper Daniel Berg.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Dinkel on 27 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 52 along with his new wife Anna Dorothea. A note on the 1767 census also records that Christian Rudolph left his wife and fled the colony.

The 1767 census records that Christian Rudolph was a stonemason (Maurer), which is the same occupation as Andreas Krägel.

The 1767 census records that Christian Rudolf came from the German region of Anhalt-Köthen.
