Johann Friedrich Uffelmann, a single cooper, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 30 September 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

Friedrich Uffelmann is recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Hussenbach on 1767. The 1798 census records the family of deceased Friedrich Uffelmann in Household No. Hs096.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Friedrich Uffelmann came from the German region of Pfalz.

[A number of document translations erroneously record this surname as Appelmann and Hufelmann.]
