Friedrich Wilhelm Reuter, his wife Johanna, and children (Friedrich, age 4; Henrietta, age 2) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 10 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Nikolaus Peter Pink.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Nieder-Monjou on 3 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 44.
Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Friedrich Wilhelm Reuter came from the German village of Köthen.
