Karl Luder [sic], a farmer, his wife Katharina, and children (Johann, age 18; Karl, age 16; Sophia, age 11; Christian, age 9; Joachim, age 4; Adam, age ¼) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.

Carl Luder [sic], his wife Elisabeth, and children (Joh. Delloff, age 18; Carl, age 17; Christ. Ludewig, age 10½; Johann Joachim, age 4; Margaretha [perhaps a step-daughter], age 4; Johan Adam, age ½) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Johann Detlof Lieder (age 18) and his siblings (Karl, age 15; Sophia, age 10; Carl [perhaps Christian] Ludwig, age 8; Joachim, age 5) are recorded on the 1767 census of Boisroux in Household No. 81 along with their stepfather Christoph Arnst.

In 1783, Christian Lieder moved from Boisroux to Paulskaya.

The 1767 census does not record from where the Lieder siblings came.
