Discussion & Documentation: 

Johann Albrecht, a farmer, and his wife Anna Margaretha arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

Johann Georg Albrecht, a farmer, and his wife Anna Margaretha are arecorded on the 1767 census of Dobrinka in Household No. 66. They had settled in Dobrinka on 20 June 1767.

Andreas Albrecht, presumed to be a son of Johann Georg Albrecht, and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Dobrinka in Household No. Db13.

The 1767 census records that Johann Georg Albrecht came from the German village of Efet [?] in the region of Franken (Franconia).

[There is a Johann Georg Albert & Anna Maria Seilser who were married on 11 March 1766 in the Lutheran Church in Büdingen. Since Johann Georg Albrecht, married on 9 March 1766, turned out to actually be Johann Georg Albert, perhaps this Johann Georg Albert is actually Johann Georg Albrecht. Karl Stumpp records that this Johann Georg Albert (perhaps Albrecht) came from the German village of Werthheim.]
