Ludwig Hahn & Anna Maria Wunderlich were married on 5 March 1766 in the Lutheran Church of Büdingen.

Ludwig Hahn, a farmer, his wife Anna Maria, and son Paul (age 18) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the galliot Die Fortuna under the command of Skipper Peter Stahl.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Beideck and are recorded there on the 1775 census in Household No. 2.
