Alexander Muth was born about 1851 in the Isenburg, Germany, area, to parents, Nikolaus and Charlotta Muth. He immigrated to Russia with his parents and sister. They arrived in Russia on 10 August 1766 on the Russian Pink Vologda under the command of Lt. Sergey Bartenyev.
There were no Muths in the Volga German Transportation List,
so it's not clear if everyone survived the hard winter in Oranienbaum and journey to the Volga region. What is clear, however, is that by the time of the 1767, his mother Charlotta had not survived.
