Konrad Böhm, a farmer, his wife [Anna] Elisabeth, and children (Maria, age 21; Johann, age 16; Anna, age 12; Johann, age 9; Jakob, age 2) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 19 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Hermann Anderson.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 29 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 55.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Konrad Böhm came from the German region of Hessen.
