Johann Ludwig Kauz, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Die Neue Freiheit von Bremen under the command of Skipper Steingrawer along with his sister Anna Elisabeth and her husband Johann Brick.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Laub on 12 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 28.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Ludwig Kauz came from the German region of Wetzlar.
