Konrad Eif, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

They are recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou (No.7). Konrad's widow and children are recorded on the 1798 census of Näb in Household No. Nb23.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Eif came from the German village of Waschenbach in the region of Darmstadt.
