Andreas Dahlinger, a farmer, his wife Sibilla, and daughter Barbara (age 4) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 20 May 1766 aboard the Russian galliot Catharina Eleonora under the command of Skipper Peter Röder.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Hussenbach where Andreas is recorded on the 1798 census in Household No. Hs055. Daughter Barbara (from Hussenbach) is recorded on the 1798 census of Kratzke married to Jakob Gerkins (and widow of Gottlieb Koleber) in Household No. Kr12.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Andreas Dahlinger came from the German region of Harburg.
