Christian Sorgenfrey, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Gabriel Wild.

Christian Sorgenfrey, a farmer, and his wife Sabina [widow of an unnamed Siebert] are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 34 along with stepson Adam Siebert (age 9) and a note that they settled in the Volga German colony of Nieder-Monjou in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Christian Sorgenfrey came from the German village of Hohen Pritz.
