Christian [sic] Tinike, a farmer, and his wife Johanna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 3 August 1767. Christoph [sic] Tinike is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 88 along with his wife Sophia.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Christian/Christoph Tinike came from the German region of Dessau.
There are no known surviving male lines of this family among the Volga German colonies.
