Discussion & Documentation: 

Paul Müller, a shoemaker, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port in Oranienbaum on 12 May 1766 aboard the galliot Anna Catharina with the skipper Daniel Geier at the helm.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Katharinenstadt on 5 March 1767 where they are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 91.

A note on the 1767 census indicates that in 1768, they moved to the colony of Schaffhausen.

The Kuhlberg list records that this family came from Friedberg, but the 1767 Katharinenstadt Census records them as being from Grünberg.
