Theobald Schade, a farmer, his wife Sophia, and children (Christian, age 4; Johann, age 2) 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.
Theobald died, and Sophia remarried to Martin Röhrig. The combined Schade and Röhrig family settled in the Volga German colony of Paulskaya on 7 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 30.
In 1789, Christian Schade moved from Paulskaya to Philippsfeld.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Theobald Schade came from the German region of Siebenlehn.
