[Johann] Gottlieb Hartmann, a farmer, his wife Maria, and son Johann [Gottfried] (age 9) 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.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Johann Gottlieb Hartmann came from the German region of Dessau.
