Konrad Krämer, a craftsman (Handwerker), and his family settled in the Volga German colony of Schäfer on 25 May 1767. They are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 54. His daughter, Johanna Magdalena, whose husband had deserted after arrival in Oranienbaum, is also recorded in the household (along with her daughter Anna Katharina). This Johanna Magdalena later married Wilhelm Schmidt.

The 1767 census records that Konrad Krämer came from the German village of Klistadt in the Hannover region.
