Discussion & Documentation: 

Konrad Östreich, a surgeon (Feldscher), and his wife Eva arrived from Rewal at the port of Oranienbaum on 30 May 1766 aboard the pink Lopamink under the command of Lieutenatn Kryukov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Warenburg on 12 May 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 15 along with the orphan Johann Andreas Bastian. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Östreich and Bastian families.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Östreich came from the German village of Alsfeld in the region of Darmstadt.
