Johann Flach, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the galliot Die Perle under the command of Skipper Thomson.

The parents and several children died after arrival in Russia. Two surviving daughters settled in the Volga German colony of Walter on 10 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 105 where daughter Anna Katharina has married Christoph Hartmann and her younger sister Anna (age 6) is living with them.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Flach came from the German region of Darmstadt.
