Jakob Seingold, a single weaver (Weber), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 3 June 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of Skipper Paul Adolph Drath.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Dinkel on 31 September 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 54 with a note that he was actually living in the household of the mayor (Vorsteher) who was Johann Wilhelm Dinkel at the time.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Jakob Seingold came from the German region of Erfurt.
