Discussion & Documentation: 

Andreas Stellmann, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Huck on 1 July 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 26 along with his new wife Margaretha and her daughters: Anna Maria & Elisabeth Schmidt.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Andreas Stellmann was a cobbler while the 1767 census records that he was a craftsman (Handwerker).

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Andreas Stellmann came from the German region of Brandenburg.
