Discussion & Documentation: 

Leonhard Schüller, a single stonemason (Maurer), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Orlovskaya on 3 August 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 79 along with his new wife Katharina.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Leonhard Schüller came from the German region of Ansbach.
