Johann Tisentauer [sic], a farmer, his wife Elisabeth, and children (Nikolaus, age 21; Franziscus, age 19; Johann Georg, age 17; Maria Katharina, age 15) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm.

Johann Hassenhauer, his wife Elisabeth, and children (Nicolaus, age 21; Franciscus, age 17; Johann Georg, age 16; Maria Catrina, age 9) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767.

Widow Elisabeth Hassenauer and her children (Nikolaus, age 21; Johann Franz, age 19; Maria Katharina, age 10) are recorded on the 1767 census of Köhler in Household No. 41. They had settled there on 21 August 1767.

Both the Oranienbaum passenger list and the 1767 census record that Elisabeth Hassenauer came from the German region of Fulda.
