[Johann] Konrad Lehning, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Margaretha, age 11; Johann, age 4) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 19 July 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Jakob Bauer.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Schwab of 8 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 8 along with Konrad's new wife Gertrude.
