Discussion & Documentation: 

There are two Lohrengel families that settled in the Volga German colony of Dönhof on 18 June 1767. They had both arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Der Junge Mathias under the command of Skipper David Wollert. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between these two Lohrengel families.

(1) Peter Lohrengel, a farmer, and his family are recorded on the 1767 census of Dönhof in Household No. 68.

(2) Georg Lohrengel, a farmer, and his wife Anna are recorded on the 1767 census of Dönhof in Household No. 58.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that both of these Lohrengel families came from the German region of Stolberg.
