Johann[es] Uhrich, a farmer, his wife Anna Margaretha, and children (Regina, age 17; Johann, age 14; Katharina, age ¼) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum 10 August 1766 aboard the Russian pink Vologda under the comand of Lieutenant Sergey Bartenyev.

His wife died, and Johannes remarried to the widow Maria Pfeifer. The combined Uhrich and Pfeifer families settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 6. Daughter Regina Uhrich is recorded in Household No. 7 married to Johann Heinrich Leicht.

In 1797, Georg Uhrich moved from Krasnoyar to Näb.

The 1767 census records that Johannes Uhrich was from the German village of Mannheim in the Kurpfalz region.
