Peter Braun was born about 1765, probably in Wehrda, Marburg, Germany. His parents were Andreas Braun and Dorothea (Unknown) Getz. For a discussion about his family, see his father's profile, Andreas Braun.

He is named in the Kulberg Reports as immigrating from Germany to Russia with his family.

Document # 2402
Husband Andreas Braun, Lutheran shoemaker from Wehrda
Wife Dorothea Braun
Child #1 Johann Braun, age 3
Child #2 Peter Braun, age 1

He and his family immigrated to Russia on 22 July 1766, traveling on the Pink Lev, a small, flat-bottomed ship with a narrow stern, typically square rigged and used to sail short distances and/or in shallow waters. [2] The ship departed from Luebeck under the command of Fyodor Fyodorov. [1] The family resided in temporary housing in Oranienbaum, Russia, during the winter before they embarked on their final journey to the Volga River region.

Peter Braun was one of the casualties oft the treacherous journey from St. Petersberg, Russia, to the Volga Region of that same country. While he is named in the Kulberg Reports, his name is missing from the first Grimm census in 1767. This first census was taken one month after immigrants arrived in Grimm. Peter should have been listed there as a 2 year old.
