Orphan Anna Baden (age 14) settled in the Volga German colony of Katharinenstadt on 3 August 1767. She is recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 230 along with a note that she is working as a day-laborer (Lohnarbeiter).

The 1767 census does not record from where Anna Baden came.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Baden family among the Volga German colonies.
