Adam Seibel's widow, Eva, and their children arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 22 July 1766 aboard the pink Lev under the command of Lieutenant Fyodor Fyodorov.

The mother, Eva, and several children died after arriving in Russia. The surviving children (Nikolaus, age 13; Eva, age 11) settled in the Volga German colony of Grimm and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 7 along with Nikolaus Heimbuch who had married daughter Katharina.

Nikolaus Seibel (age 21) is recorded on the 1775 census of Grimm in Household No. 7 as the brother-in-law of Nikolaus Heimbuch.

Nikolaus Seibel and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Grimm in Household No. Gm106.

Eva Maria Volmer Rohlmann née Seibel and her family are recorded on the 1798 census of Grimm in Household No. Gm041.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that the Seibel family came from the German region of Friedberg.
