Immanuel Sachs, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Emanuel Saxe [sic] is recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Kaneau on 7 June 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 41 along with his new wife, Rosina.

In 1786, Immanuel Sachs moved from Kaneau to Beauregard.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Immanuel Sachs was a cobbler while the 1767 census records that he was a farmer. Both documents record that Immanuel Sachs came from the German region of Köthen.
