Christian Fuhr, a farmer, his wife, and his sisters arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 25 July 1766 aboard the Russian packet-boat under the command of Lieutenant Sornev.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Rothammel on 21 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 13.
In 1797, Johann Jakob Fuhr moved from Rothammel to Brabander. In 1798, Frank & Michael Fuhr moved from Rothammel to Dehler.
The 1767 census records that Christian Fuhr came from the Sasbach in the Baden-Baden region.
