Discussion & Documentation: 

Kaspar Schnegelberger, a wheelwright, his wife Anna Maria, and children (Johann, age 12; Johann Konrad, age 8; Anna Katharina, age 3½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum aboard the Russian boot Swjatoy Pawel under the command of Midshipman Fyodor Sornev.

The surviving children settled in the Volga German colony of Stahl am Karaman on 10 June 1767. Son Johannes Schnegelberger is recorded there in Household No. 25 along with the Elias Rübsam family. Son Konrad Schnegelberger is also recorded there in Household No. 25 along with a note that he is living in Household No. 26 with the Konrad Sassmannhausen. The 1767 census does not record a relationship among the Schnegelberger, Rübsam, and Sassmannhausen.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Kaspar Schnegelberger came from the German region of Unteraspach.
