William Tolman was reportedly a mechanic from New England who got to Petropavlovsk on a whaling ship in 1813. Somehow he stayed behind and lived his whole long life in Kamchatka.
None of the sources I found reading about Tolman named the ship. I found nothing useful in the American Offshore Whaling Voyages Database. The author of a paper called "Yankee Whalers in Siberia" (1946) was also ignorant of this voyage. Perhaps it was not a whaler after all; Peter Dobell sent two trade ships from Canton in 1812.
What was the ship on which Tolman arrived?
