There isn't much in the Danish or Russian records to identify from where David Trübelhorn came in Germany, but Tatjana Schneider has located a Trübelhorn family that may be the correct one:
Johann Dietrich Trübelhorn, son of Hans Peter & Anna Apolonia Trübelhorn aus Daisbach, was born 25 December 1696. He married on 16 November 1723 to Anna Maria Barbara Rutsch.
The births of 6 of their children are recorded in the parish register of Daisbach: (1) Georg Adam, born 11 February 1726; (2) Anna Barbara, born 21 January 1727, died 8 February 1727; (3) Johann Jacob, born 26 June 1728; (4) Johann Dietrich, born 26 January 1733, died 23 May 1733; (5) Johann David, born 8 September 1737; and (6) Anna Barbara, born 21 April 1740.
