Konrad Seilbach, a farmer, his wife Anna Maria, children (Johann Jakob, age 16; Johann, age 11), and sister Anna Maria (age 50) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the snow-brig Die Frau Dietrika under the command of Skipper Joachim Friedrich Luhn.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Hussenbach. The 1798 census of Hussenbach records Konrad Seilbach and his family in Household No. Hs008.
