Bernhard Göhringer, a farmer, his wife Veronica, and children (Johann, age 13; Philipp, age 3) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Heinrich Sager.
Bernhard died and his widow remarried to Michael Schatz. They settled in the Volga German colony of Lauwe on 5 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 21 [where the surname is mis-translated as Körner].
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Bernhard Göhringer came from the German district of Bamberg.
