Wilhelm Fuchs, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766.
The parents died after arrival in Russia and the surviving children settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter. Anton (age 10) and Wilhelm (age 8) are recorded on the 1767 census of Kutter in Household No. 36 along with the Johannes Müller family.
The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Fuchs and Müller families. The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Wilhelm Fuchs came from the German region of Isenburg.
