Discussion & Documentation: 

Wolf Heinrich Febor, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Huck on 1 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 35 along with Wilhelm Justus, son of the deceased Philipp Justus. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Febor and Justus families.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Wolf Heinrich Febor came from the German region of Isenburg.
