Heinrich Otto Müller, son of Valentin Müller, and Anna Catharina Schüßler, daughter of Johann Heinrich Schüßler, were married in Büdingen on 17 February 1724. Among their children was Hans Otto who was baptized in Büdingen on 12 May 1737.

Hans Otto Müller married Anna Maria Weber on 12 May 1766 in Büdingen. Anna Maria, daughter of Johann Philip Weber and Elisabetha Nehl(?), was baptized in Wenings on 29 April 1730. They joined the migration to Russia.

Hans Müller, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Skott.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Norka on 15 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 20.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census records that Hans Otto Müller came from the German region of Isenburg.
