[Johann] Heinrich Laubach married Maria Elisabeth Föller. Their son Johann Peter Laubach was confirmed on 19 May 1766 in the German village of Seulberg.

Johann Heinrich Laubach, a hosier, his new wife Anna, and his children (Brigitta, age 17; Johann Peter, age 15½) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Novaya Dvinka under the command of Lieutenant Perepechin.

The father Johann Heinrich died and his widow Anna Maria remarried to Johann Jost Armbrüster and they settled in the Volga German colony of Krasnoyar on 20 July 1767. The combined Armbrüster and Laubach families are recorded on the 1767 census of Krasnoyar in Household No. 68.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Heinrich Laubach came from the German region of Darmstadt.
