Widow Katharina Haas, her children (Anna Eva, age 14; Anna Elisabeth, age 8; Konrad, age 5), and her mother Katharina [surname not recorded] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 9 August 1766 aboard the pink Slon under the command of Lieutenant Sergey Panov.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Norka on 15 August 1767 where Katharina remarried to Kaspar Weigandt and is recorded on the 1767 census in Household No. 10. By 1798, Konrad Haas has moved from Norka to Pobochnaya (Pb18).

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Katharina Haas came from the German district of Isenburg.
