Peter Pischki, a weaver (Weber), his wife Katharina, and son Karl Friedrich (age 11), arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 3 June 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of Skipper Paul Adolph Drath.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Brabander on 5 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 65.

The 1767 census records that Peter Pischki came from the French village of Carcassonne near Languedoc.
