Johann Georg Lautenschläger, a farmer, his wife Margaretha Elisabeth, and son Johann NIkolaus (age ¼ ) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Yagodnaya Polyana on 16 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 63.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johann Georg Lautenschläger came from the German region of Erbach.
