Conrad Otto, a mason (Maurer) from Usingen, & Cathar. Elisab. Laut from Usingen were married on 17 July 1766 in Pastor Möllraht's house in Lübeck. The marriage is recorded in the parish register of St. Jacob's Lutheran Church in Lübeck.
Konrad Otto, a farmer, his wife Katharina along with his mother-in-law Katharina [surname not recorded] and sister-in-law Eva Anna (age 10) [surname not recorded] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Gottfried Seelender.
