Discussion & Documentation: 

Christian Herrmann, a blacksmith, his wife Maria, and children (Margaretha, age 19; Johann[es], age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper John Scott.

Johannes Herrmann (age 10), orphaned son of Christian Herrmann, is recorded on the 1767 census of Pfeifer in Household No. 67 along with the Johann Adam Strack family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Herrmann and Strack families. However, Johann Adam Strack had married Elisabeth Herrmann from Usingen on 11 May 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Büdingen. Elisabeth is believed to also be the daughter of Christian Herrmann.

Johann[es] Herrmann and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Pfeifer in Household No. Pf17.

The 1767 census does not record from where Johannes Herrmann came.
