Martin Hahn, a farmer, and his family arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 4 July 1766 aboard the English frigate Love & Unity under the command of Skipper Thomas Fairfax.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Boisroux on 7 June 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Households No. 75 & 76.

In 1780, Georg Hahn moved from Boisroux to Katharinenstadt. In 1797, Andreas Hahn and his family moved from Reinhard to Boisroux.

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Martin Hahn came from the German region of Sachsen (Saxony) while the 1767 census records that he came from the region of Dessau.
