Wilhelm Tegemann, a tailor (Schneider), his wife Andrianna, and children (Andrianna, age 19; Wilhelm, age 12; Cornelius, age 9; Theodora, age 7) 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. 51.

In 1785, Jakob Tegemann and his family left Katharinenstadt.

The Oranienbaum Passenger list records that Wilhelm Tegemann came from the German region of Westfalen. The 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Recklinghausen in the Köln region.
