Lars Bergstrom, a single refiner (Zuckersieder), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Hans Karholm.

He is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Beauregard in Household No. 81 along with a note that he continued to live in Beauregard in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Lars Bergstrom came from the Swedish town of Stockholm.
