Johann Konrad Mohr, a farmer, and his wife Agnetta Christina arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the snow-brig Die Frau Dietrika under the command of Skipper Joachim Friedrich Luhn.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Yagodnaya Polyana on 16 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 61.

The 1767 census records that they came from the German village of Münzenberg.
