Samuel Zifler, a stocking maker (Strumpfwirker), and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 3 June 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of the Skipper Paul Adolph Drath.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Warenburg on 12 May 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 53.

The 1767 census records that Samuel Zifler came from the German village of Neunbach in the Darmstadt region.
