Bartholomaeus Streitholz, his wife Maria Sibilla, and children (Maximilian, age 7; Franziscus, age 4) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 May 1766 aboard the galliot Anna Katharina under the command of Skipper Daniel Geier.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Katharinenstadt on 5 March 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 66.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Bartholomaeus Streitholz was a student from the German region of Messier. The 1767 census records that he was a soldier (Soldat) from the German village of Warendorf.
