Johann Heinrich Kalbfleisch, son of Nikolaus Kalbfleisch, married on 13 April 1758 in Romrod to Julianna Fritz, daughter of Johann Heinrich & Anna Clara Fritz. Julianna had been baptized in Romrod on 4 January 1739.
They had a number of children in Romrod and immigrated with three of them to Russia, arriving from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Paulskaya on 23 July 1767. However, by the time that the 1767 Census was completed, recording them in Household No. 64 in Paulskaya, all three children had died.
