Johann [Philipp] Strebe and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Reders.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 28.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Strebb [sic] was a farmer while the 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker).
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johann Philipp Strebe came from the German region of Darmstadt.
