Discussion & Documentation: 

Friedrich Hahn, a farmer, and his wife Barbara arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 18 June 1766 aboard the hooker Anna Catharina under the Skipper Adolph Scharpenberg.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Keller on 12 May 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 18.

Following the destruction of Keller, Friedrich Hahn and his family were among those who founded the colony of Neu-Kolonie.

In 1788, Friedrich Hahn and his family moved from Neu-Kolonie to Preuss.

Widower Friedrich Hahn is recorded on the 1798 census of Preuss in Household No. Ps46.

The 1767 census records that Friedrich Hahn came from the German village of Hattersheim in the Kurmainz region.

There are no known surviving male lines of this Hahn family among the Volga German colonies.
