Georg Adam Haun, a farmer, his unnamed wife, and 4 unnamed children immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) arriving in Flensburg on 15 May 1762. They were dismissed from the Danish colonies on 10 June 1763 and joined the migration to Russia.

Georg Adam [Bartel] Haun, his wife Margaretha, and children (Anna, age 10; Andreas, age 8; Christoph, age 5; Sophia, age 3; Maria, age 22-weeks) along with his son Johann [Adam] Haun, his wife Anna, son Johann [Georg] (age 13), and sister-in-law Maria [surname not recorded] arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 14 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Reders.

They all settled in the Volga German colony of Hussenbach.

Sons Andreas and Christoph are recorded there on the 1798 census in Households No. Hs116 and Hs099, respectively. Grandson Johann Georg is recorded there on the 1798 census in Household No. Hs079.
