[Johann] Heinrich Schütz, a cobbler (Schuhmacher), and his wife Marianna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Martin Friedrich Morkau.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Jost on 19 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 65.

The 1767 census records that Johann Heinrich Schütz came from the German town of Leipzig in Sachsen (Saxony).
