According to Danish records, Michael Stähle/Stehli was born in Württemberg around 1735; this date does not match his birth year given in the 1775 census which is 1729, but clearly the men are the same person.

He traveled with his wife, Maria Regina, who was born in 1742. At the time they arrived in Denmark in 1761, the couple had no children. [1] They arrived in the City of Schleswig on 09 May 1761 and took their oath of allegiance in July. [1] In August they were recorded as living at #10 Gruetzkost in Colony G2 Friderichsfeld, in the region of Gottorf. [1] The family remained until January of 1765 when they were documents as leaving for Russia on 12 January 1765. [1] Their final destination was the Volga German Colony of Grimm. [1]

Since he arrived in the Volga region before the bulk of the Volga German settlers, he settled in another village first, such as Dobrinka, before making his final move to Grimm. He is first noted in the 1775 Grimm census.
