Johann[es] Siebenhaar, his wife Katharina, and son Heinrich (age 1) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Kamenka on 20 June 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 86 along with a new wife (also named Katharina) and her son Johann Christoph (age 4) [surname not recorded].
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Siebenhaar was a miller while the 1767 census records that he was a farmer.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johann Siebenhaar was from the German region of Bamberg.
