Michael Heinrich Schillereff, a farmer, his wife Sibilla, and daughters (Maria, age 8; Anna, age ¼) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 18 June 1766 aboard the ship Die Perle under the command of Skipper Thomson.
Heinrich Schillereff, a craftsman (Handwerker), and his wife, Christina, settled in the Volga German colony of Kolb on 13 May 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 19.
The 1767 census records that Heinrich Schillereff came from the German village of Duderstadt in Sachsen (Saxony).
Konrad & Jakob Schilleref moved from Frank to Langenfeld before 1857.
By the 1798 census, the Schillereff family was living in the neighboring colony of Frank.
