Orphan Peter Haspert, son of the deceased Georg Haspert, is recorded on the 1767 census of Semenovka in Household No. 18 along with the Johannes Bensak family. They had settled there on the 24 July 1767. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Haspert and Bensak families.

[Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the list of those being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 record that Johannes Bensack was travelling with a brother named Peter who was the same age as this Peter Haspert, so they could be half-brothers or step-brothers.]

Peter Haspert from Semenovka and his family are recorded on the 1798 census of Köhler in Household No. Kl21.

The 1767 census does not record from where Peter Haspert came.
