Adam Hammerling, a cobbler (Schuhmacher), and his wife Maria arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 18 June 1766 aboard the ship Mann und Frau under the command of Skipper Daniel Berg.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Dinkel on 27 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 48.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Adam Gottlieb Hammerling came from the German town of Dresden in the region of Sachsen (Saxony).
