Discussion & Documentation: 

There  are two Hahn families that settled in the Volga German colony of Anton on 18 July 1765. Their relationship to each other is not recorded, but they are presumed to be brothers.

(1) Adam Hahn (age 27), a farmer, his wife Anna Katharina, and children (Dorothea Elisabeth, age 4; Helena Margaretha, age 3; Johann Michael, age 1) are recorded on the 1767 census of Anton in Household No. 32.

(2) Jakob Hahn (age 20), a farmer, his wife Anna Gertrude, and daughter Anna Margaretha (age 3-week) are recorded on the 1767 census of Anton in Household No. 33.

The 1767 census records that both of these Hahn families came from the German region of Erbach.
