The Daubert family was one of the first German families to immigrate to Russia under the edict of Catherine the Great in 1767. They settled in Jagognaja Poljana near the Volga River. They had suffered greatly after the Seven Years War and were promised land and exemption from military service. In 1871, Czar Alexander II repealed their priveldges and Volga-Germans began to immigrate to the US in 1872. They began to leave Jagodnaja and arrive in Oshkosh in 1899, settling on the west-side near Sawyer Avenue and working for Paine Lumber.
George Daubert was born March 15, 1873 in Jagodnaja Poljana, Russia. His wife Anna Daubert was also born there on March 22, 1874. They were married on December 26, 1892. Five of their children were also born there: John; Henry; George, Jr.; Peter; and Lydia. Marie was supposedly born in Oshkosh in 1914. They came to the US on February 15, 1913 onboard the SS Canada through Portland Maine. He declares that he has lived in Oshkosh, WI since 1914.

They first lived on Sawyer Avenue, until George bought his own home on Lark Street in 1922. This entire area of Oshkosh was settled by Volga-Germans, mostly from Jagodnaja. Wife Anna is listed as a widow in the 1953 Oshkosh City Directory.
