Discussion & Documentation: 

Adam Seibel's widow, Eva, and their children arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

The mother, Eva, and several children died after arriving in Russia. The surviving children settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 7 along with Nikolaus Heimbuch who had married daughter Katharina.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that the Seibel family came from the German region of Friedberg.
