[Johann] Adam Ulrich, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Köhler on 10 August 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 28 along with his new wife Katharina Hoffmann.
