Johannes Müller, farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Johann, age 21; Anna, age 18; Georg, age 16; Heinrich, age 13; Johannes, age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 29 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Skott.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Norka on 26 August 1767 and recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 171 along with his new wife Magdalena, widow of Christoph Weinberger, and her son Johann Heinrich Weinberger (age 16).

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johannes Müller came from the German region of Isenburg.
