Andreas Leikam, a farmer, and his wife Anna Ursula arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard the snow-brig Frei Gebruder under the command of Skipper Minzberger.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Laub on 19 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 33.

The 1767 census records that Andreas Leikam came from the German village of Sommersdorf in the region of Ansbach.
