Johannes Dimon and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the ship Der Junge Heinrich under the command of Skipper Heinirch Niemann.

His wife died, and Johannes remarried to Walpurga, the widow of Anton Regner. She also died, and Johannes remarried to Barbara. They and the Regner stepchildren are recorded in an appendix to the 1767 census of Paulskaya in Household No. 116 along with a note that they relocated to the colony of Luzern in 1768.

The 1767 census records that Johannes Dimon came from the German region of Rehbach.

[The Plehve translation of the 1767 census records this surname as Timant.]
