Wilhelm Wollmann, a farmer, his wife Eva, and their children (Tobias, age 10; Christoph, age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the ship Der Jager under the command of Skipper Gabriel Wild.

Wilhelm died and Eva remarried to Johannes Winter. They settled in the Volga German colony of Straub on 12 July 1767.  Eva died there on 27 October 1767. The surviving members of the Wollmann and Winter families are recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 52.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Wilhelm Wollmann came from the German region of Nassau.
