Johann [Albrecht] Adelhof, a single blade grinder (Klinkenschleifer), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Martin Friedrich Morkau.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Warenburg on 12 May 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 110.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Adelhof came from the German region of Steinheim while the 1767 census records that he came from the town of Copenhagen in Denmark.
