[Johann] Georg Haupt, a farmer, his wife Anna, and children (Agnessa, age 12; Philipp, age 10; Anna, age 6; Margaretha, age ½) arrived from Danzig at the port of Oranienbaum on 20 May 1766 aboard the galliot Die Hoffnung under the command of Skipper Johann Heschke.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Balzer on 18 June 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No. 70.
In 1790, Johann Friedrich Haupt moved from Kutter to Jost.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Georg Haupt came from the German region of Pfalz. The 1767 census records that he came from the German region of Kurpfalz.
