Widower Jakob Klamm, a farmer, 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.
He settled in the Volga German colony of Preuss on 15 July 1767. He is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 141 with a note that he is living with his son-in-law Heinrich Meier.
The 1767 census records that Jakob Klamm came from the German village of Ziegenberg near Darmstadt.
There are no known surviving male lines of this Klamm family among the Volga German colonies.
