Johann [Georg] Kreutzer, a farmer, his wife Katharina, and children (Anna, age 16; Andreas, age 7½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Grapp.

Johannes Kreutzer, his wife Honnetta Cathrina, and children (Anna Cathrina, age 16; Andreas, age 7) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Hussenbach where widower Georg and his descendants are recorded on the 1798 census in Household No. Hs029.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Kreutzer came from Hungary.
