Friedrich Rindfleisch, a single merchant (Kaufmann), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax. He is recorded on the appendix to the 1767 census of Nieder-Monjou in Household No. 86. He later settled in the Volga German colony of Hockerberg.
In 1770, Karl Friedrich Rindfleisch was appointed to the Kontora.
The 1767 census records that Friedrich Rindfleisch came from the German region of Anhalt-Köthen.
