Konrad [Wolfgang] Lechner, a single man, arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard an English frigate under the command of Skipper Adam Beerfeier.

He is recorded on an appendix to the 1767 census of Katharinenstadt in Household No. 38 along with a note that he relocated to the Volga German colony of Paulskaya in 1768.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Konrad Lechner was a farmer from the German region of Bayreuth while the 1767 census records that he was a merchant (Kaufmann) from the German village of Bild [?].
