Discussion & Documentation: 

Kaspar Hahn, his wife Barbara, and children (Dorothea, age 17; Christoph, age 14) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 12 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Heinrich Sager.

They settled in the Volga German colony of Keller on 5 September 1767. Barbara died, and Kaspar remarried to Kunigunda. They are recorded on the 1767 census of Keller in Household No. 66 along with his surviving son Christoph (age 14) and her children (Anna, age 15; Friedrika Karolina, age 13; Barbara, age 12 [surname not recorded]).

The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Kaspar Hahn was a farmer from the German region of Würzburg. The 1767 census records that he was a cobbler (Schuhmacher) from the German village of Walensheim [?] in the Würzburg region.
