Widower Georg Schleicher, a farmer, and his son Johann Georg (age 20) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the Danish galliot Nord Stern under the command of Skipper Detlev Belling.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Jost on 19 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 77 along with his new wife Rebekka Keteke, widow of Georg Keteke who had died in route to the colonies, and her children (Johann Friedrich, age 15; Justina, age 12; Charlotte, age 3).

The 1767 census records that Georg Schleicher came from the German village of Klein Glien in the region of Sachsen (Saxony).
