Daniel Hanhardt and his wife Anna Barbara arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard the galliot Adler under the command of Skipper Paul Adam Drath.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Kutter on 29 July 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 65.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Daniel Hanhardt was a hatter from Switzerland. The 1767 census records that he was a farmer from the German region of Isenburg.
