Discussion & Documentation: 

Christoph Albrecht, a single farmer, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Gottfried Seelender.

He settled in the Volga German colony of Kukkus on 26 June 1767 and is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 21 along with his new wife, Elisabeth.

The 1767 census records that Christoph Albrecht came from the German district of Hessen.

There do not appear to be any surviving male descendants of this family.
