Johann Gottfeld Vogt, a single weaver, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the Danish galliot Nord Stern under the command of Skipper Detlev Belling.
He settled in the Volga German colony of Walter and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 38 along with Johann Heinrich Schneider and his family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Vogt and Schneider families.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Gottfeld Vogt came from the German region of Sachsen (Saxony).
