Anton Wirth, a weaver, and his wife arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 8 August 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Johann Gottfried Seelender.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Dehler on 1 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 42 along with a note that Anton had died 12 September 1767.

The 1767 census records that Maria Magdalena Wirth came from the German village of Wernborn in the Kurmainz region.
