Johann Schilling, a farmer, his wife Margaretha, and his sister Margaretha (age 20) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a pink under the command of Lieutenant Moisey Davydov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Köhler on 21 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 73.

The 1767 census records that Johannes Schilling came from the German village of Steinheim in the region of Mainz.
