Christian Friedrich Schulz, a farmer, and his wife Maria Elisabeth 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 Urbach on 13 July 1767. Christian Friedrich Schulz is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 12 along with his new wife Anna Maria.

In 1785, Friedrich Schulz and his family moved from Urbach to Reinhard.

The 1798 census of Katharinenstadt records Friedrich Schulz from Urbach in Household No. Ka115.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Christian Friedrich Schulz came from the German region of Sachsen (Saxony) while the 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Sohlen in the Brandenburg region. It is recorded on the 1767 census that his new wife, Anna Maria, came from the German region of Kurpfalz.
